What is a pause in music

The pause values

In a piece of music there are often more or less long moments of silence between the sounds of the notes. The pause symbols are used to determine and write down the duration of these moments without sounds. There are the following equivalents:

Whole break:

The pause symbol hangs below the second line from the top.

Half break:

The pause symbol is on the middle line.

The whole rest symbol is also used when the rest is to last a whole measure, regardless of the time signature. For example, if you want to pause the music for a 2/4-measure, not two quarter pauses or a half pause are used for noting, but the entire pause.
