Rests (Examples)

Rests (silence) in music carry the same importance as notes.

Rests are also counted like notes.

Each note value has a corresponding rest:

The quarter rest has the same value as a quarter note.

The eighth rest has the same value as an eighth note.

The half rest has the same value as a half note.

The whole rest has the same value as a whole note.
