im confused about time signatures and the bar lines.

I'm not sure where to put in the bar lines when the time signature is either 12/16, 4/8, 6/16, 9/4 or 9/16.

And im also unsure what the time signature is when the bottom number is an 8 and theres a lot of notes in the bar.

please can anyone help because ive found no help over the internet

Look in the quick link menu to the left. click: musiceducation@datadragon.com (you actually go through this menu to get here.)
Click: learn to read music Click: time signatures at the bottom. That should help.


As a side note why is your teacher being a jack-ass and coming up with these bizarre time signatures that are totally out of touch with reality. Just sayin'.

If you've found "no help" over the Internet, then you're not looking very hard. Get a parent or older bro or sis to help you learn how to do a google search (or your preferred search engine) called a "boolean" search.

As far as putting the bar lines. The top number is your number of counts in a measure. The bottom number is what kind of note gets the count. 4/4 means 4 quarter notes per measure. 12/16 means 12 16th notes per measure.(ridiculous) 4/8 means 4 eighth notes per measure. Count the number of requires counts (top number) and put your first bar line. continue doing this.
