2/2 or 4/4?

Up to this point in our lessons we have had time signatures for simple time with a four on the bottom indicating that the quarter note gets the beat (2/4, 3/4, 4/4). It is important to know that there are other time signatures in which the beat is not the quarter note.  Watch today's lesson to learn about 2/2 time which has the half note as the beat.
