My piano teacher is explaining how to count dotted eight notes followed by a 16th note.
He says to count like this: 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & (it is in 4/4 time).
Since the dotted eight note is 3/4 of a beat, he tells me that the dotted eight will take up part of the & when counting, but not all of it. Then, the 16th will take up the rest.
I don't fully understand how to properly time the dotted eight note like that, without splitting up the counting even more.
Can someone explain what he means and where the notes line up when I count like that?
