How Do I Count Music?

How do I count music easily?   Count music now!  It is a simple process to read and perform music beats.  Learn the quarter note and quarter rest quickly and easily.  Each lasts a very specific length of time.

The most basic music note value in all of music is the quarter note.  Looking at a quarter note (as seen below) it will always have a filled-in note head with a stem attached.  The step direction determines which hand is used on the piano keyboard to play the note.

Music Notes Symbols

The two music note symbols seen below quarter notes and a quarter rest.

Two Quarter Notes:

The first quarter note above is played with the right hand because the step is pointing upward.  Likewise, the second quarter note beside it would be played with the left hand because the stem is pointing downward.

QUARTER REST (above)

This wavy symbol is a Quarter rest music note symbol and receives one beat or one count of silence. Count beats of silence in music just like beats of sound. There is only one difference between a quarter note and a quarter rest.  There is simply a complete silence during  the quarter rest.

Watch this short piano video tutorial below demonstrating how to count music beats and explaining music note symbols.

Half notes and half rests quick tutorial clears up any mystery above the half note and the half rest.  These symbols in music look the same for piano, guitar, tuba, violin or any other musical instrument.

Each half note receives 2 counts or beats.  Notice that the note head (round part on the end of the stem) is hollow.

A Half Rest in music ALSO looks the same regardless of which instrument you are playing.  The simple hat-looking symbol below represents a half rest and receives 2 beats.  However, since a rest in music stands for a particular number of beats of silence this half rest symbols gets 2 beats of silence instead of sound.

Counting in Music

 Counting in music is not complicated.  As seen in the example above the music counting process consists of primarily the major beats in a measure (1, 2, 3 in the above example) and beats broken into 2 parts (as in 1+ 2+ 3+ above).  Once a steady tempo or pulse is established the music count can be softly spoken along with the accompanying pulse to create accurate counting.

To learn how to specifically count half notes and half rests see the music tutorial video below.
