11. Grouping Notes
Grade 2. lesson 11 Grouping Notes
Grouping Notes in New Time Signature
Grouping notes of small values was covered in lesson 9 of grade one. Where the grouping was made
with notes of less values than a 1 beat note.
Grouping notes for grade two is little difference, you will be working with minim (half note)
beats, in other words you will have a number 2 for the bottom number of the time signature.
Therefore your grouping of small value notes will need to follow the minim (half notes) being a 1
In the Music Theory Lessons Grade Two book you will find many examples of the correct way to

When working with grouping notes correctly, we just need to follow a few simple rules. It really is
just a case of when it is correct to join certain notes together, also how many notes can be joined
Example in 2 /2 time signature it would be wrong to beam six quaver (eighth notes) together, also
grouping eight quaver (eighth notes) together. The correct answer would be grouping two sets of
four notes, clearly showing each group represents the value of one minim (half note) beat.
What about smaller note values? Well, there are examples of those too.
