The whole note is the basis of the note system.
A whole note gets 4 beats The whole note is the basis of the note system. Each smaller note is made up of some fraction of the whole note or rest.

A whole rest also gets 4 beats
The whole note represents 4 beats of sound & The whole rest represents 4 beats of silence.

2 half notes take the same amount of time as 1 whole note
A Half note gets 2 beats 2 half notes take the same amount of time as 1 whole note Each half note represents 2 beats of sound. 2 half notes = 1 whole note

2 half rests take the same amount of time as 1 whole rest
A Half rest gets 2 beats 2 half rests take the same amount of time as 1 whole rest Each half rest represents 2 beats of silence. 2 half rests = 1 whole rest

A Quarter note gets 1 beat 2 quarter notes =1 half note
4 quarter notes = 1 whole note Each quarter note represents 1 beat of sound.

A Quarter rest gets 1 beat 2 quarter rests =1 half rest
4 quarter rests = 1 whole rest Each quarter rest represents 1 beat of silence.

Two 8th notes =1 quarter note Eight 8th notes = 1 whole note
An 8th note gets ½ beat Two 8th notes =1 quarter note Eight 8th notes = 1 whole note Each 8th note represents ½ beat of sound.

Two 8th rests =1 quarter rest Eight 8th rests= 1 whole rest
An 8th rest gets ½ beat Two 8th rests =1 quarter rest Eight 8th rests= 1 whole rest Each 8th rest represents ½ beat of silence.

Sixteen 16th notes = 1 whole note
A 16th note gets ¼ beat Two 16th notes =1 8th note Sixteen 16th notes = 1 whole note Each 16th note represents ¼ beat of sound.

Two 16th rests = one 8th rest Sixteen 16th rests = 1 whole rest
A 16th rest gets ¼ beat Two 16th rests = one 8th rest Sixteen 16th rests = 1 whole rest Each 16th rest represents ¼ beat of silence.

This is the note pyramid – it shows each type of note and its relation to the whole note.

Let’s try some Musical Math!
Add the beats in the following math sentences. What is the total number of beats?

Click to see new problem or answer.
+ = _____ 2 + 3 = _____ + + = _____ 5

Let’s try some more! 4 = _____ + + 4 + = _____ + + + = _____ 6

Let’s build some rhythms!

Click to create & then try this one.
4 4

Let’s try another one. 4 4

One more! 4 4

Now lets make some music!
Congratulations! Now lets make some music!
