Tempo is a quarterly music journal published in the UK and specialising in music of the 20th century and contemporary music. Originally founded in 1939 as the 'house magazine' of the music publisher Boosey & Hawkes, Tempo was the brain-child of Schoenberg's pupil Erwin Stein, who worked for Boosey & Hawkes as a music editor.

The journal's first editor was Ernest Chapman and it was intended to be a bi-monthly publication. Nos.1 to 4 appeared from January to July 1939; but owing to the outbreak of the Second World War there was a hiatus in publication until August 1941, when issue No.5 appeared, and another until February 1944, when regular publication resumed with No.6 on a roughly quarterly basis. Meanwhile the New York office of Boosey & Hawkes set up a separate American edition which produced six issues in 1940-42 (numbered 1-6, independent of the UK numbering) and an unnumbered 'wartime edition' in February 1944.

In 1946, the journal was enlarged and redesigned and began a new numbering: Nos.1 and 2 of the New Series were notionally Nos. 16 and 17 of the Old Series, but thereafter dual numbering was dropped.

From the 1950s, Tempo began to cover a wider range of music than that published by Boosey. Past editors include Anthony Gishford, Donald Mitchell, Colin Mason and David Drew. Since 1974, the journal has been edited by Malcolm MacDonald under his journalistic alias of Calum MacDonald.
