In this lesson, our instructor Laura Ryan goes through an introduction of bar lines and measures. Beginning with an explanation of bar lines, measures, and time signatures, Laura continues with double bar lines and repeat signs. She shows how measures are visual representations of time in music. The video ends with multiple examples of writing different measure symbols.
Double bar lines indicate the end of a piece of music.
A repeat sign contains two dots next to a bar line, and indicates the repetition of the specified measures.
