Tempo Speedometer

I made something like this years ago when I was teaching general music. After making the speedometers, we listened to music of various tempi. The students pointed the arrow that they felt best fit the music. The kids really enjoyed this project, and it worked for students of all age levels.

I should use this at the piano, and give students “speeding tickets” when the speedometer inches higher than the tempo indicated in the music!
