How To: Master dotted whole notes, half notes, and quarter notes

Master dotted whole notes, half notes, and quarter notes

In this tutorial, we learn how to understand dotted notes (Dotted whole, half, quarter). Dotted notes are a dot after a note that add more to the duration of the note. A whole note is four notes, adding the dot adds two more beats to the note. A whole note with a dot is worth six beats. Basically, you will have to read the music to see if it's a half a note or a whole note, then subtract the dot from the note to see how many notes that specific part of the song is. You will need to be familiar with reading music to do this, but it's very easy to understand and will come quickly when you are playing music!
