## Correct way to engrave tempo instructions?

```Hi guys,
```
I was wondering, what is the correct way to engrave the tempo instructions (for example "Allegro vivace") in a classical piece? I usually use the piece text in the header (which works nice but in most scores I know the tempo instruction is set above the bar not flushed to the left and is in bold letters), but what if one needs to insert a tempo instruction in the middle of the piece. There are of course the tempo markers, but I need the "text version" for this. Would be nice if there would be a command like
```
\tempo 4=140 "Allegro vivace"

```
which would result in just the text being printed in the score but the numbers used for the midi file.
```
