Learn about Bars

Use this programme to learn about bars. Divide the music into the correct number of bars. There should be the same number of beats in each bar.

Use the time signature as a guide. The upper number shows how many beats in each bar. The lower number shows the length of each beat, 4 for a crotchet's length, 2 for a minim's length.
