#beginquote# Sorry not a tomboy, but a band director. This is the way I help my kids learn rests. First they are just as important as notes. Every note has a partner rest that shares the same musical value. A whole rest is 4 beats of silence. Thats the one that looks like a " HOLE" on the staff. It's heavy because it is taking up the whole measure and hangs below the line. The half rest is 2 beats of silence and it is half the value of the whole rest. It looks like a HAT on the staff. It looks like the opposite of the whole rest. And the quarter rest is 1 beat of silence and it looks like a lightning bolt. I don't know what grade you started playing the trumpet, but please keep playing, get private lessons with a good trumpet teacher. That always helps. #endquote#
