Types of Notes:
1 of the most important parts of music is learning the types and values of notes. Here you will gain some
understanding of how the notes look and sound. The icon means you can listen to it. All of the music
samples are recorded at the same speed and are just 1 measure.
The whole note:
The half note:
an egg on its side, either with a line through it or not.
The quarter note:
the same as a whole not but with a vertical line attached to it.
The eighth note:
the same as a half note except the circle is filled in.
The sixteenth note:
the same as quarter notes but with a curly off the line. They can also be put in groups of 4, 3, or 2.
the same as an eighth note but has double curlies. Can also be grouped in 4, 3 or 2 but are joined by a double line.
