Learning objectives • What rests are • Composing our own rhythms

What is a rest? • In a (4/4) we can ﬁt 4 crotchets • We need to have 4 crotchets in it • But what if we don’t want to play 4 notes?

Types of rest • Just like crotchets, minims, and semibreves are all written differently • Rests are written differently depending on their length

Minim rest • A small rectangle on top of the middle line

Semibreve rest • A small rectangle below the fourth line (remember we count from the bottom!)

Writing our own rhythms! • We can ﬁnally start writing! • We will only try to write 2 bars in (4/4) • Then you will try to do the same in (3/4)!
