Music Composition trial
« on: July 21, 2020, 04:16:15 PM »

Hello Guys,

I'm just starting to actually write my compositions, still trying to figure the correct way to put this.

Can you please check the attached file and see if the time signature, rests are accurate?

Is it OK to have a bar with only 1 rest and no notes at all? Is the time signature correct? 

Thanks a lot 😇

Hi and welcome to Pianostreet,

Looks okay to me. 

​Is it OK to have a bar with only 1 rest and no notes at all? Is the time signature correct?

Using a whole rest (semibreve rest) for an entire measure, regardless of time signature, is accepted practice.  You don't need to fill in the precise number of beats of rest for a complete bar of rest.  The whole rest is understood to mean rest for an entire measure. 


Finale defaults will generally set you up to follow common practice rules.  However, the program will allow you to intentionally break notation rules, if you so desire. 
Made a Liszt. Need new Handel's for Soler panel & Alkan foil. Will Faure Stein on the way to pick up Mendels' sohn. Josquin get Wolfgangs Schu with Clara. Gone Chopin, I'll be Bach
