Symbols and Terminology: Notes and Rests

NOTES and RESTS

notes and rests are typically combined in many different ways. the important thing is that all the notes and/or rests in any given measure “add up” to a complete measure. example of notes and rests...












figure vii.a.
notes and rests

NOTE:
beat is a regularly occurring interval of time in metered music used to subdivide each measure. it is the name for a unit of music. musicians learn to count beats, and play notes for the specified number of beats. counting beats starts when the first note is played.


so for instance... nakakita ka ng eighth note paano mo siya ika-count? kung ano ang bilis ng isang beat or ng isang tap or isang count, hahatiin mo lang cia sa dalawa.. hanap ka ng relo or watch, tignan mo yung second hand nya. diba ang one quarter note is equivalent to 2 eighth notes... so sa loob ng isang segundo, dalawang beses mong pipindutin, ika-count, or ita-tap ang eighth note... parang fraction lang ito sa math... so i-apply mo yun dito sa beat...


figure vii.b.
dotted quarter note


a dot following a notehead ( or dotted note value ) increases the note's duration by 50%. so pagnaka-encounter kayo ng ganito sa music sheet for instance a dotted quarter note, ang pagcount sa kanya would be 1 ( for the quarter note ) plus ½ ( for the half of the quarter note ) = 1½ beats. ayaw mo ng math?! sige, itigil mo na ang pagbabasa hehehe joke... ^_^v

if rest, identify mo muna kung anong klaseng rest yun, ilan ang duration nya, instead of naka-pindot ka sa mga keys, iaangat mo lang yung mga daliri mo off the keys....

for instance, sa right hand mo na mga notes sa piyesa, after ng quarter note may makita kang half rest then quarter note ulit ( assuming 4/4 ang time signature ), so play mo muna yung quarter note, tanggalin ang kamay for 2 counts/beats, then balik ulit for the remaining quarter note. naka-angat ang kamay mo :)
