Music Reading: the tie, dotted notes and other rhythmic figures (Part 1)


New rhythmic figures: the tie

In the lesson today we get to know how to read some new rhythmic figures.

In particular we will concentrate on the tie.
This is one of the rhythmic figures which are most used in music to lengthen the duration of the sound.

Today we will learn the best way to read this in music, even in the most difficult cases.

To understand how to use the material found in this lesson, I suggest you to read the introduction to this cycle of lessons (see link).

Have a good lesson!
