Change the Time Signature


In this Time Signature Lesson we will be looking at changing the time signature. This would be to half the values of all the notes or to double the values of the notes. e.g. on your exam paper you may be asked to rewrite a melody in double its given time values. In time signature lesson, we will show you examples of how this is best done.

The main challenge here is to understand the correct values given to each kind of note once it is used with a different time signature. Dotted notes for example need extra care, or notes in time signatures which have small values and are beamed together. They must be regrouped correctly within the new time signatures.
