Lesson 2



Rhythmic Notation


Before we begin discussing rhythm--the time relationship between each note--we need to know how to notate a note.  There are three elements to a note: a notehead, a stem, and a flag.  Stems go up from the right side of the notehead, down from the left side.  Flags curl to the right regardless of stem direction.
