Time

The time of a piece of music is how it is divided up ? how long each note will be, and how many notes will be in a measure. For example, say a piece of music is in 3-4 time. This means that in each measure there are three counts (1-2-3), and a quarter note (shown by the 4) gets one of those counts (or beats).
