Simple Time Signatures


In grade two lessons you have been looking at new time signatures During our time in grade one, the only time signatures we used were the ones with a number 4 at the bottom. we used 2-4, 3-4, and also 4 over 4. All these time signatures had crotchet beat values. These time signatures are what we call simple time

In the lessons for grade two we introduced a new time signature where the lower number will be a number 2. This means each time signature with a number 2 for its lower number will be of minim beat values.
You will find time signatures written like 2-2, 3-2, and 4 over 2.Again these are Simple Time Signatures.

The top numbers did not change, we still have 2 beats per bar, 3 beats per bar, and 4 beats per bar in each of our new time signatures.

Now one thing I would like to make clear to you is the word Simple' this is a type of time signature, nothing to do with being easy. In a future lesson you will be introduced to another kind of time signature called 'Compound'.
So you see 'Simple' and 'Compound' are just kinds of time signatures.
Don't worry about Compound at the moment, that won't come until the next grade.
