Use the word andante to describe a relatively slow, moderately paced tune. Your piano teacher might tell you to play a piece andante.
The word andante, particularly common in classical music, is sometimes described as “at a walking pace.” An andante movement in a symphony is faster than adagio but slower than allegro. Like so many musical words describing tempo, andante is Italian, a form of the verb andare, “to go.” The Latin root, ambire, means “to go around” or “to go about.”
