  Dolmetsch Online - Music Theory Online - Note Groupings
The three quavers (eighth notes) are played in the time of two quavers (eighth notes), in other words the three quavers (eighth notes) divide a crotchet (quarter note) into three equal parts.
This rule implies that 2 notes in a dotted crotchet (dotted quarter) are crotchets (quarters).
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).

 Quarter note - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In music, a quarter note (American) or crotchet (Commonwealth) is played for one quarter of the duration of a whole note.
Quarter notes are notated with a filled-in oval note head and a straight, flagless stem.
The note derives from the semiminima of mensural notation.

 Half note - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In music, a half note (American) or minim is a two-beat long note played for half the duration of a whole note and twice the duration of a quarter note (or crotchet).
Half notes are notated with a hollow oval note head (like a whole note) and a straight note stem with no flags (like a quarter note; see Figure 1).
The note derives from the minima in mensural notation, which is Latin for 'least or smallest,' because at one stage it was the shortest of all note values used.

 Feel the beat: intro to music notation
The quarter note is half as long as a half note, and a quarter the length of a whole note.
A whole note is as long as two half notes or four quarter notes, and therefore as long as four beats or two slows.
The first note is a half note which lasts two counts and which corresponds to the "slow", then follow two quarter notes which are one count each, and they correspond to the "quick"s.

A quarter note tied to an eighth note of an eighth-note triplet is 1 and 1/3, or 4/3 of a quarter note.
A quarter note tied to a quarter note of an eighth-note triplet is 5/6 of a half note.
The new tempo is eighth note = 60.

 Quarter note at opensource encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
In music, a quarter note or crotchet is a note played for one-quarter the duration of a whole note, hence the name.
A similar symbol is the quarter rest (or crotchet rest), which denotes a silence for the same duration.
As with all notes with stems, quarter notes are drawn with stems to the right of the notehead, facing up, when they are below the middle line of the musical staff.

 Duration: Note Lengths in Written Music   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
To find out the pitch of a written note, you look at the clef and the key signature, then see what line or space the note is on.
Such a note may be a pitchless sound, like a drum beat or a hand clap, or it may be an entire chord rather than a single note.
The beams may connect notes that are all in the same beat, or, in some vocal music, they may connect notes that are sung on the same text syllable.

 All the possible approaches
An example would be to play quarters with the right and left hands while you alternate the figure between the right and left foot in a single stroke manner.
If you play a instrument where both hands are free (such as piano), play a quarter note pulse in one hand (on any note or chord) and play the rhythms with the other hand.
An example would be play the root note of an arpeggio or scale with one hand and play the arpeggio or scale over it in rhythm with the other hand.

 Note Durations
Two quarter notes equal one half note in duration and four quarter notes equal one whole note.
When a quarter note is assigned the time value of 1, an eighth note will receive a time value of one-half.
When a quarter note is assigned the time value of 1, a sixteenth note will receive a time value of one-fourth.

Examples: A whole note is "held" for four complete beats in 4/4 time, a half note for two, a quarter note for one.
The eighth note and sixteenth notes are visually different from a quarter note because of their flags.
Beamed notes are joined by one or more lines at the end of the stem which replaces the flag(s) of the notes.

 Norm Weinberg's WebRhythms: Lesson 9
The quarters will be performed correctly, because they still have the value of two eighths (the eighth you play and the eighth you leave out).
When applying this rule to quarter note triplets, there will be three quarter note triplets in the same amount of time as two "normal" quarter notes.
Just like quarter note triplets, these figures are most easily and accurately performed if you continue to count all of the syllables for eighth triplets, even though you may only be striking the drum on some syllables.

 [No title]
Two quarters on a strong half must either be preceded by two quarters at the end of the previous measure or be followed by a tied weak half.
However, the resolution may be sounded on the third quarter alone and followed by a fourth quarter, used as a passing tone or consonant skip.
The second quarter is then an upper neighbor to the tone which forms the dissonant suspension, and the line continues downward to the resolution.

 Mathematical Measures of Syncopation (Notation)
A '1' would stand for a whole note, a '2' for a half-note, a '4' for a quarter note, an '8' for an eigth-note, a '16' for a sixteenth-note, etc.
The squiggly lines at the beginning and end of the second measure are quarter note rests (there are also eighth note, sixteenth note rests, etc., but we will not explain that here, it is not necessary).
Also, the first note in our measure (the dotted quarter note) has a duration of 1 and a half quarter notes, but it's easier to say it has a duration of 3 eigth notes.

 Note Durations, Part 2
For example, adding a dot to a quarter note results in a note that is the same length as a quarter note and an eighth note tied together.
If the note is on the middle line, the stem may point either upward or downward.
In that situation the half note would be worth four beats, and the whole note would be eight.

 Characteristics of music notation (2)
With regard to the whole note (second measure), as they do not have a stem by definition, they are only superimposed to form the chord (this principle is also valid for the double whole note, which is an eight beats note and does not have a stem).
When a chord has a note placed between two lines and a note placed on one of these two lines, the convention is to place one of the two notes on the other side of the stem; this improves the score readability.
When the notes of the chord are played by different instruments, the idea is rather to write the notes in the form of different voices.

The whole note is held for the value of the bottom number in the time signature.
So in the case of 4/4 and the half note was worth 2, the quarter note will be worth 1.
The eighth note is worth half of the quarter note.

 Fifth Species, Two Parts (sc5.htm)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
The use of unmixed note values within a measure is not arbitrary, but dependent upon the overall rhythmic balance and variety of the melodic line.
In order to understand what mixtures of note values are most appropriate to the creation of a flowing melodic line, it is necessary to consider the proper correlation between duration and metrical emphasis.
Quarter notes are the least problematic of the three essential durational values of fifth species.

The instructor alternately holds up the half and quarter notes, encouraging students to call out whether a half or quarter note is being held up.
The instructor covers/erases the quarter notes with a placard of four half notes/or draws four half notes.
The first is a simple two quarter note, two half note pattern, the second a reversal of the first, the third altering half-quarter-half-quarter, the fourth a reversal of the third, the fifth and following placards mixing notes in both the middle and end of the pattern (such as quarter-half-half-quarter, half-quarter-quarter-quarter, etc.).

 Meter Basics
The note values that can receive beats include double whole note, whole note (1), half note (2), quarter note (4), eighth note (8), sixteenth note (16), thirty-second note (32), sixty-fourth note (64), and one hundred and twenty-eighth note (128).
Thus, there are four quarter notes in each measure or a strong accent every four quarter notes.The table below shows an explanation of several common meters and their notations.
So a whole note is half as long as a double whole note, a half note is half as long as a whole note, a quarter note is half as long as a half note, an eighth note is half as long as a quarter note, etc.

Just as there are two eighth note triplets in the value of each quarter note triplet, there are also two sixteenth triplets in the value of each eighth note triplet.
And, four sixteenth notes that are inside a grouping of thirteen will equal the value of a quarter note inside a grouping of thirteen.
In the second count of the example, the eighth note on the "and" syllable is replaced by a rest.

 "I...I...I've got r...r..rhythm"   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
The beauty of musical notation over tablature is in it's ability to notate not just the pitch of a note but the note's duration.
Two in an eighth, four in a quarter, eight in a half and 16 in a whole.
For example, a dotted half note is held for 3 beats (or the same value as 3 quarter notes).

 Music Folk Feature:Complex Rhythms Demystified
In grade school, children are taught to count by quarter notes: quarter note is 1 beat, a half note 2 beats, a whole note 4 beats.
Example: if you are playing a melody which has a smallest rhythmic value of an eighth note, each eighth note gets 1 count, quarter notes get 2 counts and so on.
Therefor a dotted quarter note is equal to a quarter note plus an eighth note.

 MW Starter Kit: Notes revert to Quarter note values
I followed the instructions by selecting the arrow (select) tool, double-clicking the note, chose "Duration", then "half" to change the note to a half note, but nothing happens....the note is not changed and reverts to the original quarter note.
A: If you have for example 3 or 4 quarter notes already in that measure and want to change one of them to a half note, you're going to have to delete at least one of those quarter notes directly after that half note.
The easiest thing to do is to erase the notes after the note you want to change to a half.

that is the total duration of a tripletised quarter plus eighth, will be the same as the total duration of a single quarter note.
But the tripletised quarter will have 2/3 the duration of a normal quarter, and the tripletised eighth will have 2/3 the duration of a normal eighth.
If a dotted quarter followed by an eighth is too choppy, then a tripletised quarter followed by tripletised eighth might be better.

Assuming now that I set the real length of a quarter note to 0.90 - 0.95 second, would it still apply when the next "note" is a break.
It seems the music you are describing is very slow (perhaps even m.m 60?) since quarter notes are so extrinsically integral to the flow your of your piece.
Not that I'm saying in Allegro pieces quarter notes do not have to be accurate, but it must be a slower paced song in order for you to consider those in the continuity of a piece.

 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.
Four notes in one beat are called sixteenth notes (16 divisions per bar).
Because a dotted eighth note is equivalent to three sixteenths, it lasts 3 x 125 or 375ms.

 Crochet - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The origin of the crochet technique is a subject of considerable controversy.
The word is not to be confused with "crotchet", otherwise known as a quarter note.
Crocheted fabric in the modern sense is begun by placing a slip-knot loop on the hook, pulling another loop through the first loop, and so on to create a chain.

An eighth note triplet is a group of 3 eighth notes accelerated to fit within the duration of 2 standard eighth notes, that is to say, one beat.
The three eighth notes are grouped by a curve (or a hook) with figure "3".
In the third case, the half note represents two quarter notes and it is a quarter note triplet (3 quarter notes instead of 2).
