Lesson 1.6 - Tied Notes



Download a worksheet on this lesson HERE

Tied notes are consecutive notes of the same pitch that are joined together by a long smooth line. There can be two or more notes joined together and they are held for the value of the individual notes added together.

Also note the following points:
  • Ties can only be between notes that are the same pitch. A common mistake is to confuse tied notes with slurred / legato notes which also use the symbol of a curved line. However, a slur or legato symbol is between notes of a different pitch



A slur is between notes of different pitch

· 

  • The curved "tie line" is written on the opposite side of the note to the stem. i.e. stems up - ties below. (See image at the top of this page)
  • If you want to tie more than two notes, you will need more than one tie.
To tie more than two notes you will need more than one tie
