Tempo Galaxy

A music practice incentive program for music teachers

Journey through the Tempo Galaxy sending students on missions and stamping their passport as they move from planet to planet! Starting at Planet Lento, students aim for the final and fastest destination in the galaxy, Planet Presto, as they complete missions. A great way to encourage students to make progress on their instrument!

Tempo Galaxy has been designed to be flexible to inspire and motivate students

Taking on missions (which you can tailor to your studio), students earn points and journey between planets to complete the challenge. The six planets are all named after musical tempo words and each one is a faster word. This is a great way for students to learn common terms that they will encounter in their music!

Music Pack Contents

The six posters are bright and fun and are a great visual reminder of how far everyone has travelled. Students are inspired and motivated along the journey as they watch others reach each planet!
