The Tie


PAGE Progress:

What Does the Tie Do?

The tie connects one note to another. The tied notes must be the same note/pitch. The purpose of the tie is to make a longer note.

How to Use the Tie

  1. The following is a total of 3 counts
  2. The second note is not articulated/tongued

You may be thinking that it is the same rhythm as a dotted half note. You are right!

We will be using both the tie and the dotted half note in the exercises for this lesson.
