Subject: RE: Help: 'Sol Fa' Music Notation

As a kid I learned a timing system that uses

ta---ti-ti-tiki-tiki-tiki-tiki in which

ta=quarter note ti=eighth note tiki=2 sixteenth notes

We were told this was less visible, hence more acceptable, than tapping the foot. School teachers (especially band directors) in my area use it still.
