In music, the term note has two primary meanings: ⁕A sign used in musical notation to represent the relative duration and pitch of a sound; ⁕A pitched sound itself. Notes are the "atoms" of much Western music: discretizations of musical phenomena that facilitate performance, comprehension, and analysis. The term note can be used in both generic and specific senses: one might say either "the piece 'Happy Birthday to You' begins with two notes having the same pitch," or "the piece begins with two repetitions of the same note." In the former case, one uses note to refer to a specific musical event; in the latter, one uses the term to refer to a class of events sharing the same pitch.
The Foolish Dictionary, by Gideon Wurdz
(PROMISSORY) "The substance of things long hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."
