  1. What is Time Signature?

  2. A time signature tells you how the music is to be COUNTED. 1 2 1 2 1 2 1 2 1 2 3 1 2 3 1 2 3 1 2 3 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 5 6 1 2 3 4 5 6 Notice the PATTERN

  3. The Time Signature helps divide the music into measures. 1 2 1 2 1 2 3 1 2 3

  4. Time Signature The time signature consist of two numbers written like a fraction It answers 2 questions: 1. How many beats are typically in each measure 2. Which type of note regulates the beat – eighth, quarter, half, whole The time signature is written at the beginning of the staff. It will not appear again unless the meter changes. Top number = how many strong sounds/beats are in one measure Bottom number = what type of note gets the strong sound

  5. When you read a piece of sheet music are the measures filled with numbers or notes? NOTES 1 2 3 1 2 3

  6. Decode the Time Signature How many strong sounds/beats are in one measure ____________________________ ____________________________ What type of note gets the strong sound

  7. Decode the Time Signature How many strong sounds/beats are in one measure ____________________________ ____________________________ What type of note gets the strong sound

  8. Decode the Time Signature How many strong sounds/beats are in one measure ____________________________ ____________________________ What type of note gets the strong sound

  9. Decode the Time Signature How many strong sounds/beats are in one measure ____________________________ ____________________________ What type of note gets the strong sound

  10. Which number in the Time Signature suggests the NOTE that will be the strong beat.

  11. Which number in the Time Signature suggests HOW MANY strong beats are in one measure.

  12. Which number in the Time Signature suggests HOW MANY strong beats are in one measure.

  13. Which number in the Time Signature suggests the NOTE that will be the strong beat.

  14. CRACK the Code I am a measure with 3 strong beats and each one of my beats is represented by a quarter note. A. B.C.

  15. CRACK the Code I am a measure with 4 strong beats and each one of my beats is represented by a half note. A. B.C.

  16. Suggest a Time Signature for the following measures.

  17. Suggest a Time Signature for the following measures. Four measures from Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.

  18. = Common Time

  19. = Cut Time

  20. Suggest a Time Signature for the following measures. Twinkle Twinkle Little Star with a different Time Signature.

  21. Decode the Time Signature Draw notes to fill each measure
