I was looking through my children's Reader's Digest Children's Songbook. It is arranged for piano, with notations for guitar chords and organ. There is a symbol on the staff at the beginning that looks like a giant cents sign ¢. It appears after both the treble clef and the bass clef. What the heck is it?
Alla breve or Cut time
This symbol represents 2/2 time, indicating two minim (or half-note) beats per measure. Here, a crotchet (or quarter note) would get half a beat.
