Time Signature

Time Signature:

The numerical fraction placed on the staff or Bar, immediately after clef or double bar in bar notation and at the beginning of a piece of music, which determines the duration of each numerical beat are called Time signatures. The upper digit of the fraction denotes the number of beats in a bar and the lower digit indicates the nature or type of the notes (crotchet, Quaver, etc) that receive one beat. The time signature is also called a meter. There are various Time signatures such as – 4/4, 2/4, 3/4, 6/8, etc

Time signature

The upper number is the count of beats in the meter. The lower number is the symbol length used to represent each beat. Together they tell us the total length of all symbols in a bar.

The 4/4 time signature indicates a quadruple (four-beat) meter, where each beat is a quarter note long. The total length of each bar will therefore be four quarter notes, or 4/4 of a whole note. This is the most widely used time signature and you will often see it notated simply as a “C” common time.C Common Time

The 3/4 time signature indicates a triple (three-beat) meter, where each beat is a quarter note long. The total length of each bar will therefore be 3 quarter notes, or 3/4 of a whole note.
