 Triplets in 6/8???
Author: Micaela

This has been a topic of contention in my high school Music Theory 2 class for the last few months. One stubborn class member insists that there can be triplets in 6/8 meter. In the first three beats (or the first beat if you're counting in two), he writes an eighth note triplet and one regular eighth note. Can this be done? I think it can but I've never seen it in any piece (other than in every composition by this class member). Has anyone seen it in actual music?

The same guy also has an argument regarding how to round negative numbers (up or down?). But he saves that one for calculus class- where no one can figure it out, either.

Thanks for reading,
Micaela
