It is made up of one thin and one thick line The thick line is always on the outside On a grand staff the bar lines and double bar pass through the entire staff

Dotted Half Note A dot after a note INCREASES its duration by half the original value Example: Adding a dot to a half note (2 beats) increases its value by 1 beat, making 3 beats: Time Signatures

The TIME SIGNATURE appears at the beginning of the music after the clef sign: The upper number tells how many beats are in each measure The lower number indicates what type of note receives 1 beat: 4/4 Time

Time signature is also called meter Can also be written as common time Four beats in a measure In 4/4 time, a quarter note is equal to one beat A half note is equal to two beats

A whole note is equal to four beats 2/4 Time Two beats per measure Quarter note equals one beat **Both 2/4 and 4/4 time signatures are called duple meters because they are based on the number 2 Time Signature

Is called triple meter because it is based on the number 3 Three beats per measure Quarter note equals one beat Whole, Half, and Quarter Rests

Music uses silence in addition to sounds. These silences between sounds are called RESTS Rests can have the same durations as notes, and are named for the note with the same duration **A whole rest equals four beats of silence, but is also used in 2/4 and 3/4 to indicate rest for the whole measure**
