Walking pace

To play at a walking pace, typically 72 to 76 beats per minute.

The Italian word "Andante" initially had only the meaning of "walking". Starting from the 17th century, Italian composers began to write the word into their compositions. Soon, performers realized that when they saw this word in scores, they are told to play at a tempo of walking.
