LESSON NINE: STARTER STUDIES

Go to your music notebook and make yourself a
table like the one shown below.
Various music symbols

In the table to the left is each note and it's rest partner. The note value and the rest value are the same. In other words:

  • The count or beat for a quarter note is the same for a quarter note rest.
  • The count or beat for a half note is the same for a half note rest.
  • The count or beat for a whole note is the same for a whole note rest.
  • The count or beat for a eighth note is the same for a eighth note rest.
  • The count or beat for a sixteenth note is the same for a sixteenth note rest.

Student NotesRests are used by composers to show you where NOT to play in a song. The beat continues during a rest but no note or sound is made during the rest. Let's look at and play some examples. First, some on screen changes need to be noted. It's time to change a learning tool that we've used up to this point.
