This musical concept tune is really easy. Unless you lose track of where you are! That's what will make it more fun though. It gets faster and faster then slower and slower depending on where you are, so you have to count. More than that, you have to listen. The tempo actually changes during the first through tenth endings (indicated by the metronomic markings above the staff) while your students are not singing. That way they have a chance to focus on what the new tempo is before they resume singing at measure 5 each time. It will definitely keep them on their toes! And it will definitely teach them what tempo is.
