Tempo is the amount of beats per minute, or bpm. In other words, it's the speed of the music. I guess pulse would be the general rhythmic beat of the piece. Rhythm is the pattern of the music determined by the note durations. If anyone has any better definitions, please share. But I don't see what's so hard about just looking it up in the dictionary.
