Sorry so late! Hurricane Matthew has hit our little town and our surrounding towns too. So Prayers are welcomed!
I was thinking about notes last night. The never ending counting of notes and how hard it must be to for those who never learned to read music….playing in orchestra its a MUST!
Note Names and Beats:
Whole note, also known as “Semibreve” is a count of 4 beats.
Next is dotted note, also known as”Dotted Minim” is a count of 3.
A half note, also known as “Minim” is 2 beats.
Then you have the dotted quarter, also known as “Dotted Crotchet” is 1 1/2 beats.
Quarter note, also known as “Crotchet” is 1 beat.
Then you have your eighth note, also known as “Quaver” is 1/2 beat.
“Semiquaver” is 1/4 beat.
And here is a little musical Joke just for you!
