DOTTED NOTES

Placing a dot to the right of a note head lengthens the note’s duration by one-half. Additional dots lengthen the previous dot instead of the original note, thus a note with one dot is one and one half its original value, a note with two dots is one and three quarters, a note with three dots is one and seven eighths, and so on. Rests can be dotted in the same manner as notes. Moreover, a dot placed before a note on a stave sustain that note half of it’s original value. Example of dotted notes:
