This song describes the shape of whole notes, half notes, quarter notes, eighth notes, 16th notes, 32nd notes and 64th notes. Many students have found it extremely useful in memorising these notes and being able to remember how to draw them. I have written this song in a quasi "James Brown" style.
Lyrics: The Seven Music Note Shapes - Copyright 1996 Francis Piccin
The note that’s shaped like a football is a whole note.
The note that’s shaped like a p or d is a half note
The quarter note’s just like the half note except it’s painted black
The eighth note’s just like the quarter note, with a little tail on it’s back
The sixteenth note has two tails, the thirty-second note has three
The smallest note is the sixty-fourth note with four tails don’t you see?
