How many beats does 2 quarter notes get that are connected?

In music, two quarter notes tied together get the same amount of beats as a half note: two beats. If one quarter note is one beat, and you put together two, you get two beats. Remember, one sixteenth plus one sixteenth equals one eighth. One eighth plus one eighth equals one quarter. One quarter plus one quarter equals one half. One half plus one half equals a whole. The same goes for rests, and later on you will probably get some thirty-second notes or sixty-fourth notes. You just go the opposite direction: two sixty-fourth notes equal a thirty-second note. Two thirty-second notes equal a sixteenth note. And then you go to eighths, quarters, halves, and wholes. I hope this helps!

What does an eighth note plus a sixteenth note equal?

How can you rewrite 4 quarter notes?

Four quarter notes is equal to one whole note (the empty note head with no stem). One whole note is held for four beats. Four quarter noes is also equal to two half notes (the empty note head with a stem). Each half note is equal to two quarter notes. To put it another way: one half note is worth twice the value of a quarter note. Four quarter notes is also equal to eight eighth notes (the filled note heads with flags). Each eighth note is worth half of the value of one quarter note. Four quarter notes is also equal to sixteen sixteenth notes (filled note heads with two flags). Each sixteenth note is worth half of the value of the eighth note or one fourth of one quarter note. Those are the most common divisions of four quarter notes. You can also mix and match those divisions; for example, four quarter notes takes up the same amount of time as one half note plus one quarter note plus two eighth notes. There are hundreds of thousands of configurations that could rewrite the value of those four quarter notes, which is just one reason why there is so much variation in the types of music it is possible to write!
