This page gives beginning piano students a handy reference comparing the various note values. But unlike most note-value charts, I’ve added a second page with dotted notes, so students can see how a dot affects the value. My students and I study this chart vertically of course, comparing the whole note to the half note to the quarter note and so on. But we also look at the chart horizontally: notes without a dot most naturally want to divide equally into two, and notes with a dot most naturally want to divide equally into three.
This is a two-page handout, both pages are 8.5×11 portrait mode. Each of my student has a three-ring binder — I punch holes in these pages such that the pages open facing each other, for easy comparison.
