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.
A dotted quarter note. (One beat for the quarter note and half a beat for the dot.)
I believe you mean "crotchet" which is a British musical term for quarter note. In 4/4 (common) time it receives one beat.quaver = eighth note; semi-quaver = sixteenth note.minims = half notes (two crochets); semibreves = whole-notes (four crotchets)source: http://www.shanemcdonald.org/music/learn-types-of-music-notes.html
Like any other note, how many beats it is worth depends entirely on the time signature. But it is equivalent to a half note. The bottom number of the time signature indicates which note equals one beat. In 4/4 time, a quarter note gets one beat, so a minim would be equal to 2 beats. In 2/2 time (or 4/2, or anything else with a 2 on the bottom), a half note is one beat, so also a minim would be one beat.
usually a half noteA half note gets 2 beats if you are in a 2/4, 3/4, 4/4, etc. If you are in an 8 pattern time signature, a quarter note gets two beats.
It could be the quarter note if the piece is slower, or the dotted-half in something faster (such as a waltz).
A quaver is worth half the beat of one beat of a bar.
A whole note is worth 4 beats, a half note is worth 2 beats, a quarter note is worth 1 beat, an eighth note is worth 1/2 a beat, a sixteenth note is worth 1/4 of a beat, a dotted half note is worth 3 beats, and a dotted quarter note is worth 1 and a 1/2 beats.
An eighth note is worth half a beat.
A quaver. A full note worth one beat is a crotchet_.
a quarter note
Strangely enough, an eighth note is one eighth of a whole note.
there is a half beat in a minim
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.
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.
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.
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
a quaver is half the value of a crotchet which makes it worth half a beat.
