# How to engrave music note by note in a measure in lilypond

A measure is shown here:

How to notate this is in lilypond on a note by note basis on a grand staff.

The note F5 in the treble clef is given as two lists, one for notes and other for duration

`F5 -> [rest,'F4',rest],timing = [0,4,0],` 4 denotes four quarter notes

Likewise

F6 -> [rest,'F4',rest],timing = [0,4,0]

A3 -> [rest,'A3',rest],timing = [0,0.5,3.5]

C4 -> [rest,'C4',rest],timing = [0,0.5,3.5]

F3 -> [rest,'F3',rest],timing = [0.5,0.5,3]

A3 -> [rest,'A3',rest],timing = [1,0.5,2.5]

C4 -> [rest,'C4',rest],timing = [1,0.5,2.5]

F3 -> [rest,'F3',rest],timing = [0.5,0.5,3]

A3 -> [rest,'A3',rest],timing = [2,0.5,1.5]

C4 -> [rest,'C4',rest],timing = [2,0.5,1.5]

F3 -> [rest,'F3',rest],timing = [2.5,0.5,1]

A3 -> [rest,'A3',rest],timing = [3,0.5,0.5]

C4 -> [rest,'C4',rest],timing = [3,0.5,0.5]

F3 -> [rest,'F3',rest],timing = [3.5,0.5,0]

How to convert the above notes and durations in lilypond to generate a music engraving? Basically is there a possibility in lilypond to generate a note by note syntax for the whole measure?

• You never explained where the information that looks like `F5 -> [rest,'F4',rest],timing = [0,4,0]` is coming from. Basically, you shouldn't follow any of that, except maybe the note names. Have you looked at the Learning Manual? May 19 at 14:35
