Pupils will learn that notes in Music are measured as fractions of a bar. In a standard bar using a 4/4 Time Signature, you can fit 4 crotchets or 8 quaver notes.
The actual time a note lasts for depends on the Tempo (speed) which is measured in beats per minute (bpm). Pupils often use a Metronome to help them play in time – they can be found on all the school keyboards, on software in the Recording Studio and on most Guitar Tuners (pictured).
