 Dotted note - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The use of a dot for augmentation of a note dates back at least to the 10th century, although the exact amount of augmentation is disputed; see Neume.
A triple-dotted note is a note with three dots written after it; its duration is 1 7/8 times (1 + 1/2 + 1/4 + 1/8) its basic note value.
Use of a triple-dotted note value is not common in the Baroque and Classical periods, but quite common in the music of Richard Wagner and Anton Bruckner, especially in their brass parts.

 Dots, Ties, and Borrowed Divisions   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-01)
A half note is half the length of a whole note; a quarter note is half the length of a half note; an eighth note is half the length of a quarter note, and so on.
Note: Ties may look like slurs, but they are not the same; a slur connects to notes with different pitches and is a type of articulation.
Notes in jazzy-sounding music that has a "swing" beat are often assumed to be triplet rhythms, even when they look like regular divisions; for example, two written eighth notes (or a dotted quarter-sixteenth) might sound like a triplet quarter-eighth rhythm.

 Dotted Notes
Dots are placed after note heads to change the duration of a note.
For instance, one half the value of a half note is a quarter note.
Therefore, a dotted half note is the time value of a half note plus a quarter note.

 Note Values
On the downstem eighth note the stem is on the left side of the notehead and the flag (on the right side of the stem) is curving upward toward the notehead.
A half note is twice as fast as a whole note, a quarter note is twice as fast as a half note, and eighth note is twice as fast as a quarter note and so on.
A note is a symbol to play a tone on an instrument, while a rest is a symbol instructing the player to be silent for a specific rhythmic duration.

This note value does not, however, indicate the desired duration of the appoggiatura (as is the case with appoggiaturas in Mozart and Haydn).
After the beginning on the main note, the uneven number of notes requires that the initial note be held for the length of a eighth-note.
Note that in all cases, the mordent's upper neighbor note must match the harmony expressed by the other voices -- which may be different from the home key and its key signature.

 Norm Weinberg's WebRhythms: Lesson 5
Dots (yes, they are nothing more than little dots that follow a note or a rest) extend the normal value of a note.
Dotted rests have the same duration as dotted notes, and you simply observe the entire duration as silence.
Dots, on the other hand, extend a note by a particular duration that cannot be altered.

 The Basics of Reading Music - By Kevin Meixner
In the second bar the first note is a dotted quarter and it would be held for the first one and a half beats of the bar on "1 + 2" (spoken "one and two").
In the third bar the first note is a dotted eigth note which would be held for the duration of 3 sixteenth notes as counted as "1 e +" (spoken "one eee and") and the second sixteenth note falls on the "a" (spoken "aaah").
There are also dotted rests which just like the dotted notes are held for exactly 1/2 of their duration extra on top of their normal duration (a dotted half rest is held for three beats, a dotted quarter note rest is held for the same duration as three eight notes would be, etc...).

 Dotted Notes and the Tie   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-01)
There is no symbol for such duration, but we can create one by using one of two ways: the dotted note or the tie.
For instance, if we add the dot to a half note (which normally lasts for two beats), we will then have a note lasting three beats instead of two (half of 2 is 1, and 2 + 1 = 3.
Note that the resulting rhythm on the first measure (using the dotted note) is exactly the same as the rhythm found on the second bar (which uses tied notes).

 Note Durations
Musical notes are not all held for the same duration (length).
The flag shows that the note value is cut in half, so two eighth notes equals one quarter note.
The dot shows that it is half again as long as a quarter note.

 ODU Music Theory - Mus 221 (mod )
Dotted notes can be broken down to 3 equal notes; the undotted note can be divided into 2 equal parts (simple meter).
If a dotted quarter note is the beat, the division would be an eighth note and the lower number in this meter would be an eight.
That is, an eight in the bottom number of a time signature means that the note receiving one beat is the dotted quarter.

 Learn to Read Music - Lesson 5
When a note is dotted, such as a half note, you would say "a dotted half note." This means that the note is held for the normal length of time plus half of that.
When two notes are "TIED" together, they are played as one note with an endurance equal to the sum of the two notes.
The first note in the second group is an eighth note because of the single beam, and the notes following it are both sixteenth notes since they have two beams at most extending from at least one side of the stem.

 Meter
The eighth note is the two part subdivision of the basic pulse (two eighth notes equal the same duration as one quarter note).
The standard notation practice for compound meter uses a dotted note value (such as a dotted eighth note, dotted quarter note or dotted half note) to represent the pulse.
A series of eighth notes in the notation are performed similar to a quarter note followed by an eighth note in 12/8 meter.

 O'Reilly -- Sync and Grow Rich
Play two notes in the space of one beat, and you get eighth notes, because there are eight divisions per bar.
A dotted eighth note lasts for an eighth plus a half of an eighth, or three sixteenth notes.
Because a dotted eighth note is equivalent to three sixteenths, it lasts 3 x 125 or 375ms.

The five notes that are subdivided appear at the top, in row 1, one note per column.
The symbols for rows 1/2, 1/4, and 1/8 are those of chart (A), but with the addition of a dot next to all notes, so as to be consistent with the dot that has been added to the whole note.
If the number of divisions in a column = the number of beats of a meter, the notes within the cell which exists at the intersection of that row and that column are in the lightest possible shade of grey.

 Dolmetsch Online - Music Theory Online - Note Groupings
This rule implies that 2 notes in a dotted crotchet (dotted quarter) are crotchets (quarters).
A dotted crotchet rest (dotted quarter rest) can be shown as a crotchet rest (quarter rest) follow by a quaver rest (eighth rest) but should not be shown as a quaver rest (eighth rest) follow by a crotchet rest (quarter rest).
A quaver note (eighth note) followed by two quaver rests (eighth rests) should be shown as such but two quaver rests (eighth rests) followed by a quaver note (eighth note) is best shown as a crochet rest (quarter rest) followed by a quaver note (eighth note).

 Dolmetsch Online - Music Theory Online - Notes & Rests
For all notes except the breve (double whole note) and semibreve (whole note), each note has a stem and, for the notes of shorter time-value, a flag, hook or tail (one flag for a quaver (eighth note), two for a semiquaver (sixteenth note), and so on).
So, for example, a minim (half note) (equivalent to four quavers (eighth notes)) followed by one dot (equivalent to two quavers (eighth notes)) followed by a second dot (equivalent to one quaver (eighth note)) is equivalent, in total, to seven quavers (eighth notes).
Tied notes are treated as a single unbroken note whose duration is given by the duration of the notes under the tie taken successively.

Note that one beat of the duplet is coincident with one heat of the triplet, hut that the next heat of the duplet is exactly in the middle of the next two heats of the triplet.
Shortening this note to a thirty-second, we have one thirty-second left in that measure for the grace notes which we move (at least in our mind if not on paper) to the end of the preceding measure, as shown.
These three notes are then played in one beat as a triplet, while counting 4, as shown (which is very rapid), and slurred into the accented eighth note beginning the next measure.

The Note Head is the circle, filled in or open, which lies on a line or in a space.
Likewise the dotted half rest is equivalent in value to the dotted half note; the dotted eighth rest is equivalent to the dotted eighth note, etc.
It should be noted that often a whole rest will represent rest for a whole measure, regardless of the required note durations for that measure.

Example: a half note receives 2 beats, half of that is 1 beat, therefore a dotted half would receive 3 beats.
To Figure Relative Minor Scales: First identify the 6th note of your major scale then play an eight note scale using the same key signature as the major scale but begin on the 6th scale degree instead of the first.
A Dominant 7th is made by lowering the note 1/2 step and can be added to the major, minor, augmented, and diminished chords.

 How to read sheet music... Dotted Notes - Reading Complicated Syncopation
We called these one beats "quarter notes" and we called the smaller ones "eighth notes." Well, one and a half beats is really equal to three eighth notes.
Count eighth notes like this "1 and 2 and 3 and 4 and..." Counting this way is counting each word on the eighth beat.
Every time you dot a note, half of the new value is added again to the total value.

 NWCForum - Incorrect timing with dotted notes
The dotted note with a quarter note is one beat, the next quarter note is one beat and the eighth note is a half beat.
This is commonly done in music, where the top note is held and the bottom note moves - hence they are notes of different value, but this stinking program has a difficult time doing even the simplest thing.
NWC then counts the bar length using the shorter of the notes in the chord and indeed is clever enough to put the stem of the next note in the right direction to match.

 Workscore Composer Explanation
The array of control groups that are arranged in the left panel of the allow you to specify the pitches and durations of the notes that you add to your melody.
If the note should be in a different register than the one chosen by the command, you can ask for the notes pitch to be transposed an octave lower or higher.
You specify the notes to be selected by specifying the bar number, beat number and beat fraction that locates the first note to be selected, and the number of notes to the right, including that first note, that should be selected.
