    This morning I accidentally exited out of this website after purchasing some music charts. Teresa helped me retrieve what I’d purchased within FIVE MINUTES!!! She also called to make sure I’d received everything I’d ordered!
    Now THIS is how ALL sales transactions should work!
    THANK YOU, TERESA, for your website but more so for your passion for doing what’s right and love of MUSIC!
    You ARE appreciated!
    I will be sharing her website with ALL of my music peers and students!

    Hi Lucy,
    The 2 crotchets (quarter notes) you see joined together are called quavers (eighth notes). They can be joined together into groups of 2’s or 4’s. Read this article: Also, take a look at this music theory chart: Try also this one: I hope this helps!
