The musical rest is a span of time in which there is silence. Rest values are determined by the shape of the symbol being used. Their duration is determined by the designated tempo of the music and their use is also affected by the time signature designated in the music.
A quarter rest also called a crotchet rest, is a short “squiggly” dark line running vertically, which begins just below the fourth line (G) to just above the second line (D) of the five-line staff. It’s like a skewed letter Z with a small letter C on the bottom.
The quarter rest in the 4/4 time signature instructs the performer to silence his or her instrument for the duration equal to one beat in a single measure of music.
