How else can a crotchet rest be written?
If you write a crotchet (quarter) rest, the position of beat 3 will be hidden – somewhere in the middle of that rest. Instead, you need to write a quaver (eighth) rest first, to finish off the second beat, then another one to begin the third beat.
What note is created when two eighth notes are combined?
Take for example the quarter note in the chart below. It is worth one beat, therefore it can be divided into two equal beats. One eighth note is worth half a beat, so two eighth notes equals one beat and make up one quarter note. For a quarter note to be subdivided, we divide it twice, or by four.
