two-part writing

• Jun 30, 2013 - 17:56

When putting two voices on the same stave, e.g. soprano and alto, how do you put a bar's rest in one part but not the other?


You write a rest instead of notes. To make it clearer which part is resting and which is singing you would generally raise or lower the rest on the stave. You may also need to centre the rest for a neater appearance. Double-click on the rest and use the arrow keys.
