Tempo Run is a fast-paced note-naming game for Elementary Music Students. It is intended to help students develop the skill of reading music at the speed necessary for any type of musical performance. The game helps students move past “Every Good Boy Does Fine” and “FACE” toward reading the notes on the staff as fluently as they read their spoken language.
