Note Lengths with American Naming

This worksheet is as requested by Alice – it’s the same as the previous note lengths worksheet but using American rather than British names for the note lengths.  There are some worksheets on the way with rest length notation, and I’ll be sure to do both versions of those too.

If there’s a worksheet you’d like please suggest it in the comments!

  1. I would be delighted to see a worksheet on root position chords, naming the root and quality (major or minor), then more advanced with inversions, and finally augmented and diminished triads. My students often struggle with these!
    Keep up the great work. Your worksheets are so appreciated and helping students around the world!

  2. Thanks again for including all of the wonderful worksheets on this site!

  3. I thought I would mention that beginners often have trouble with stem direction, length, and which side of the note to put it on. Children, especially those in Kindergarten and first grade, have not yet developed the fine muscle motor skills it takes to create tiny notes and symbols. The treble clef and quarter rest are often more than enough to make them want to sharpen their pencils down to the nubs! (if you keep sharpening your pencil until it’s gone, then you have nothing left to do the work with, right?) Thanks for giving me some fresh ideas and perspectives, and I will be sure to peek in now and then to see where you are going.

    I find the new naming of the notes very confusing. Everything was fine the way it was. Why would you want to rename them now? I find this a waist of time. Just learn them as they are and not make more confusion. It’s not that easy in the first place and now you are making it harder to understand. Leave well enough alone.
