where/when does each of these notes begin?

All in a 4/4 measure treble clef.
1. melody note C and E together (quarter notes) with an eighth note rest under it.

2. accompaniment note G dotted once.(quarter note and dot)

3.F and D connected with B (both eighth notes)

4.arpeggio half notes: E, G, C with quarter rest note under it.

5 .then accompaniment C quarter note.

when does each note come in for it to last the measure

Five seconds seems about right, for the first one.

Number 2 should be for a quarter note + an eighth note. I can't figure out what the note would be in time measurement right now for some reason . The dot means the note it's part of gets and additional 50% to it's original value. That should be it's duration anyways.

TS, you may want to try wording that better. I don't understand half of what you just said.

Look at it this way. An eight note is half a beat. A quarter note is one beat. A half note is two beats. "Dotted" notes are 1.5 times their original value. So, a dotted half note is three beats, a dotted quarter note is 1 and a half beats (kinda like a quarter and an eighth put together) and a dotted eight note is 3/4 of a beat (so, like three sixteenth notes put together)

Lets say you have this: A dotted half note, a dotted quarter note, and a dotted eighth note, sequentially. It'll look a bit like this:

1 e + a 2 e + a 3 e + a 4 e + a 1 e + a 2 e + a 3 e + a 4 e + a
<---------------------> <---------> <--->

Now, lets say you have a sixteenth note, a dotted eighth note, a dotted quarter note, an eight note, and a quarter note. This will form a whole measure:

1 e + a 2 e + a 3 e + a 4 e + a
x <---> <---------> <-> <----->

I finally got both of them right...
