Lesson 5.5 - Irregular time divisions

Previous grades have dealt with triplets and duplets. Now you will learn how beats are divided into 5, 6, 7 or 9. Groups of 5, 6 or 7, known as  quintuplets, sextuplets and septuplets respectively, are equal to 4 of the same type of note value. For example 5 'quintuplet' quavers are worth the same as 4 normal quavers, or in other words a minim.

Groups of 9 are equal to 8 of the same type of note value.

Consider these examples:

Groups of 5, 6 or 7, known as  quintuplets, sextuplets and septuplets respectively, are equal to 4 of the same type of note value. Groups of 9 are equal to 8 of the same type of note value.

In each of these examples the group of notes on the left is worth the same time value as the single note on the right.
