Did you know we can both hear and see musical notes?
If we listen to someone sing, we are hearing a lot of notes.
If we look in a music book, we are seeing a lot of notes.
But music is more than just hearing or seeing notes;
In between notes we hear and see silence too!
We can see silence with a symbol called a rest.
If we form different patterns of sound and silence,
notes and rests,
We can create all kinds of wonderful music!
