A Time Signature is an essential part of music notation.  Without a time signature, we would have no idea of the rhythmic value, or the time of a piece of music.
The Time Signature dictates to us what the pulse of a piece of music is.  Each bar has to abide by the ruling of the time signature which is stated at the beginning of every piece of music. The top figure of the time signature indicates HOW MANY BEATS  there will be in every bar.  The lower figure tells us what NOTE VALUE these beats will have.

So informative, thank you, am a trainer in music and piano lessons too and am glad am getting much here, be blessed. Without a time signature, there would be no BEAT – the notes would meander aimlessly about without any rhythmic shape,  a little like writing an essay or a book without any punctuation or capital letters at all.


We will count one, two, three, for every bar of the piece of music.  Every bar will contain only three beats, even though these beats might be broken up into shorter notes.
