This is an 8 measure melody in 4/4 time signature. The C key on the piano is a Middle C, or a C found somewhere in the middle of the piano.
Each measure of this song has one quarter note. The quarter notes are all on strong beats – beat 1 and 3.
There are two eighth notes that also appear throughout this song: an eighth note followed by a quarter rest. This rest symbol means to take a breath in music, and the eighth note is played normally.
The eighth note followed by an eighth rest looks like this: where there’s no line through the stem of the eighth note, play it as normal – two notes per beat – and when you see an eighth rest like this, take a breath again.
