HI ALL!!

I have a question regarding what the 2/4 or 4/4 means in the begining fo the music sheet. I am able to read the notes and what fingers to use but how do i know what tempo (how fast/slow) i am suppose to play and when to pause. I am not too clear and my teacher does not speak English too well to explain this to me.


Any help would be GREAT!

Hi Goldie:

The 2/4 4/4 are rhythm. The bottom 4 means quarter note a beat. If it's a 8, it means a 8th note a beat. The top shows how many beats in a measure. So 2/4 means 2 quarter notes in a measure; 4/4 means 4 quarters notes in a measure.

You can try to get a metronome. That helps a lot.
