Grade 1 exercise 5 dotted notes and dotted rests
Dotted Notes and Dotted Rests
All the different kinds of notes can be increased in their time values by adding a
dot at the right side of the note head.
Music rests being exactly the same, it is important to remember with the rests to place the dot in
the third space of the staff
whatever the kind of rest. Always on the right side of the rest.
Dotted notes and dotted rests are often used throughout music, the added value which comes with
dotted notes and dotted
rests creates a interesting rhythm.
How much extra value will the dotted notes or the dotted rests have, the dot gives the value of the
note or rest half of the

There are several ways in which we can lengthen the value of notes and rests. One
of these ways is to add a Dot making the note
become a dotted note, this method can also be used to lengthen the value of the rest, by adding a
Dot it will become a dotted rest.
Example if you play a normal Crotchet (Quarter Note) it would be worth one beat
once you add a dot it becomes a dotted note
then it is worth one and a half beats, the same applies to a Crotchet Rest (Quarter Rest) it will
become a dotted rest
worth one and a half beats of silence.
Dotted notes and dotted rests also creates a good rhythm because the extra value which is given by
the dotted notes or the
dotted rests makes what we refer to as off beat, often found in jazz music.
