Written by Len Barker
WHEN YOU SEE A DOT AFTER A NOTE OR REST, IT WILL INCREASE THE VALUE OF THAT
NOTE OR REST BY HALF OF ITS VALUE.
SO A DOTED QUARTAR NOTE OR REST EQUALS A QUARTAR PLUS AN EIGHTH OR THREE
EIGHTHS IN VALUE.
AND, A DOTED EIGHTH NOTE OR REST EQUALS A EIGHTH PLUS A SIXTEENTH OR THREE
SIXTEENTHS IN VALUE.AND SO ON.

Donations
Dear friends,
I hope this book is helping you with your music studies.
If you have some questions, please write and we will try and help you. Also
keep checking our webpage because we are adding to it all the time.
I have made this book available for you to download at no cost. In the past as a
teacher and musician, I have always been paid for my work. Over the years I
met many students that wanted to learn but there parents could not afford
lessons for them. I felt bad about this, and started teaching in the park once
every week for free to anyone that wanted to learn.
Now I can continue to help people learn music over the internet. For those that
can help us, a donation may be sent. This would be appreciated, because we do
have expenses, and would like to expand the work we are doing.
When donating,
Please email us first, and in the subject put donation.
drumforfun@gmail.com
We will send you the best address for you to send your donation to us. With your
donation, please also include your address, or phone number with the country
code, or your email address. We would like to thank you, and by doing so, you
will know that we did receive your kind help.
Thanking you in advance,
Len Barker.
