Counting Lesson #2

Once again you’ll see how counting notes is just like basic math. Put two quarters together and what do you get?

Half Note

2 Counts of Sound

Half Rest

2 Counts of Silence

The HALF NOTE gets its name from being exactly 1/2 of a WHOLE NOTE.

For every note, there is a rest of equal value.

Don’t forget, counting notes is like counting money:

2 quarters equal a half dollar. 4 quarters equal a whole dollar.
