Key Question:  What are duration and tempo?


Duration and tempo affects the pace and feel of any music you listen to.


Duration is the length of time each note is played for. 

Just like in Beethoven's Fifth Symphony, notes can be short or they can be long.


Tempo is the speed of the music. It can have a big effect on the listener.

You might know some slow songs that you love singing along to.

You probably also have a favourite fast song that makes you want to get up and move.
