Grade 2. lesson 7 triplets
What is a music triplet?
Lesson seven is about triplets, so the question is What is a Music Triplet? Sometimes we need to
divide a music note intothree smaller value notes.
Take this example, we will use a Crotchet note (quarter note) to explain. Normally a one beat note
into two quavers (eighth notes). to equal 1 beat.
There are occasions when the composer requires an extra note, so the main beat is then divided
into three. By placing a number 3 over the three notes these notes then become a triplet.
You will find many examples of triplets, and how to count them when they are mixed with other note
a rhythm, shown to you in lesson 7 of The Music Theory Lesson Book Grade two.
