Lesson 4.3 - Duplets

You should already know that triplets are 3 notes played in the space of 2. Duplets are simply 2 notes played in the space of 3 and are shown by placing a bracketed two above the relevant notes. 

Duplets are two notes played in the space of 3
This would be quite useful if you needed to convert a piece from simple time into compound time.

For example, if you were asked to convert this 4/4 rhythm into compound time
The group of three quavers needs a triplet sign
it would become
The pairs of quavers need a duplet sign
The duplets in this example occur where two notes are played in the space of where you would normally find three. Remember in 12/8 time a beat normally contains 3 quavers. If you only have 2 notes in a beat - a duplet sign is needed.
