“Dots Good”

Sharon Paquette Lose • Playing Tips • September 12, 2016

The dot makes a note longer by half the notes value. I first teach the dotted half note, then the dotted whole note. Learning to read the dotted quarter note becomes much easier for students to grasp the concept of augmentation dots.
