Note Relation

A semibreve is the longest played note in modern music. It is equivalent to 4 beats.

Next is the minim. It has half the amounts of beats as the semibreve. Two minims occupy the same amount of time as the semibreve.

The crotchet is next. It is 1/4 of a semibreve. So, 4 crotchets equal to one semibreve and 2 crotchets equal 1 minim.

A quaver is next on the list. It has a 1/8 beat.

And last but not least, the semiquaver. It has a 1/16 beat which makes it the smallest note in modern music.
