Laning Phase

Bard does a good amount of damage early game, using q to stun and auto attacking a few times can chunk out about 170-250 damage off your opponents, depending on who it is. When in laning phase, poke your enemies with q. This will mostly cause them to back off a bit, allowing you to farm very well. You may not even need blue buffs due to nearby chimes.

Teamfights

Bard is not good in teamfights if you do not know how to use him. In Teamfights, you should mostly use Tempered Fate on tanks, leaving the squishies easy to kill.

Roaming

Obviously Bard is a roamer, he has chimes that will increase his movement. When roaming to different lanes, use magical journey to engage in a fight, and if you have Tempered Fate use it before engaging with Magical Journey if you're sure you can secure the kill(s).
