You always write two quarter rests. Whole rests are used, but they take the value of one full measure. On the contrary, ‘
How many quarter rests make a half rest?
In 4/4 or 2/2, two quarter rests spanning the first half or second half of the measure can be combined. It’s generally hard to sight read a half rest spanning the middle of the measure. It’s a tradition but it really makes things easy to read.
What kind of rest would you use for a complete measure of rest in 2/4 or 3/4 time?
In 4/4 Time, even though the Whole Rest “technically” receives 4 counts, it is more important to still think of this as the Whole Measure being silent. Yes, a Half Note will fill a whole measure in 2/4 time with sound but you must use a Whole Rest to fill a whole measure in 2/4 with silence.
How do you write a rest of 3 4?
3/4 = three quarter note beats. We write two quarter rests here and not one half rest, because in the time signature of 3/4, the beat is a quarter note. A half rest would land on a weak beat (2nd beat of the measure) so it’s not used.

How do you write rests correctly?
To Sum Up
- Write rests that equal ONE BEAT and place them ON the beat (not between the beats).

- If a rest follows a note which is less than one beat, FINISH that beat first.

Then two four means there are two crotchet beats in a bar two quarter note beats and a bar.
Is a whole rest always 4 beats?
I was taught that a whole note gets four beats – all the time. A whole rest (hanging from the second line), on the other hand, gets as many beats as there are in the measure. A half rest always lasts two beats. The only exception to this rule is the rare occasion when a piece is written in 4/2 time.

What rest has 2 beats?
Minim Rest (Half Note Rest)
