Musical symbols, notes, rests and intervals pt. 1

  1. 1. Part 1
  2. 2.  Note – Represents the pitch and duration of a musical sound.
  3. 3.  A hollow oval note head represents a whole note or a semibreve. The length of a full note is equivalent to four beats in a 4/4 time. A whole note receives 4 counts, which means, you have to hold the note for its full value. 4 beats.
  4. 4.  played for half the duration of a semibreve. In other words, a minim receives 2 counts, allowing the musician to hold the note for 2 counts instead of 4. The minim, like the semibreve, is a hollowed oval with a stem or tail attached. 2 beats.
  5. 5.  A quarter note is half of a minim, and one-fourth of a full note. It is represented by a filled-in oval. Like the minim, a quarter note has a tail or a stem attached to the note head, which points upwards or downwards depending on how the note falls in a musical piece of work. 1 beat.
  6. 6.  played for one eighth the duration of a whole note or semibreve. It is represented with a filled-in oval with a stem accompanied with a flag. The flag is always positioned on the right side of the stem. ½ beat.
  7. 7.  It is played for one sixteenth the duration of a whole note. It is represented by a filled-in oval note head with a straight stem―like a quaver―with two flags. ¼ beat.
  8. 8. Direction: Guess the correct symbols and their corresponding number of beats.
