Read/write properties

(Component).name

Gets and sets name of component.

Returns string or none.

Note.note_head

Gets and sets note-head of note.

Gets note-head:

>>> note = abjad.Note(13, (3, 16))
>>> note.note_head
NoteHead("cs''")

Sets note-head:

>>> note = abjad.Note(13, (3, 16))

Gets and sets written duration of note.

Gets written duration of note.

>>> note = abjad.Note("c'4")
>>> note.written_duration
Duration(1, 4)

Sets written duration of note:

>>> note.written_duration = abjad.Duration(1, 16)
>>> note.written_duration
Duration(1, 16)

Returns duration
