It depends what the time signature is; if the time signature is 4/4 then a note worth half a beat would be an eighth-note. If the time signature is in say 6/8, then half a beat would be a sixteenth-note. Usually music is in quarter beats, so most probably an eighth-note for you.

How many beats is a half note worth?

A dot after a note increases the note by half of its original value. Therefore a dotted half note is equal to 3 beats (2+1) in 4/4 time. The second dot is equal to half the value of the FIRST DOT. The value of the first dot of a half note in 4/4 time is 1 beat. Therefore the second dot would be half of a beat, which is an eighth note. Now do the math to put it all together 2+1+1/2=3 1/2 beats. Another way to think of its duration is the equivalent, in 4/4 time, of 3 quarter notes and 1 eighth note.

When a dot is placed after any note what dies it mean?

It extends the note for exactly half its value. For example, a dotted half note is worth three beats. Half of a half note is one beat, add that on to the two beats a half note is already worth, and there you have it. Three beats. So, basically we have a half note: 2 We place a dot after it, this dot being worth half its value: 1 It becomes: 3 Half of a half note is not necessarily one beat. These dots have nothing whatsoever to do with beats. If you have a note with a dot after it, the length of that note is extended by 1/2 of that note's length. A second dot means it is extended a further 1/4. Completely irrespective of how many beats there are in a bar.

What is the value of the dot?

A dotted note is worth one and a half times the worth of the same note without the dot. eg. a crotchet is worth 1 beat so a dotted crotchet is worth 1 and 1/2 beats. or, a quaver is worth 1/2 a beat so a dotted quaver is worth 3/4 of a beat.

What is the value of a half note in 2 2 time signature?

2 2 time, sometimes referred to as 'cut time', has 2 beats per measure, each beat is a half-note. So a measure is equal to one whole note Therefore, an eighth note is one-eighth (1/8) of a measure. If you're asking the value per beat... there are 2 quarter notes per beat, and there are 4 eighth notes per beat. Or, an eighth note is one-quarter (1/4) of each 'beat' in the measure. You might count this as: One E An Uh, Two E An Uh
