Playing Guide – The Windmill: Understanding the Quaver Notes with Olivia

Quavers can be tricky to play when you are first introduced to them.  Olivia is playing a piece called the Windmill and it has some quavers.  We explore how to play the quavers by counting or feeling the rhythm in connection with the left hand notes.

Remember:

Quavers counts half a beat of a crotchet.

We can count them in any way that is easy for us but the most common way of doing so is:  1 and 2 and etc. where 1 is a quaver, the “and” is a quaver and so on.
