Abstract: The present study examined the effect of music tempo upon performance. 16 male university sport students (22± 3years old) performed one 10-minute session of a moderate intensity on an exercise bike under three music conditions, high tempo (fast), low tempo (slow) and no music (control). Performance was assessed via distance travelled, average heart rate and rate of perceived exertion (RPE). A oneway between group analysis of variance revealed significant main effects for distance travelled (P < .05), heart rate (P <.05) and RPE (P < .05). Follow-up Bonferroni corrected pair wise comparisons indicated a significant difference between high tempo music and low tempo music for heart rate, distance travelled and RPE. No significant effects were found between the fast music and no music conditions for any performance indicators. Bonferroni corrected pair wise comparisons revealed significant differences between low tempo music and no music for RPE. In conclusion, results suggested that listening to a high tempo music had the most significant effect upon performance.
