THE BASICS TO UNDERSTAND MUSIC

In music every note can be identified by letter name, the first seven letters of the alphabet: A – B – C – D – E – F – G; it’s that simple. There are 8 C’s on a piano, so from one C to the next highest C is called an octave. These notes are used universally so musicians can communicate with each other. To understand what each note sound like, we are going to start with         middle C and go up to the next C.

Now let’s see what their sound (pitch) is:

C       D       E       F       G       A       B     (Back to)  C

Do    Re     Mi     Fa     So    La     Ti       (Back to)  Do

This is what it looks like in musical form (low to high)

If you look at a keyboard or piano, you will see sets two black keys and sets of three black keys. The white key to the left of the two black keys is C. D is the next white key to the right. Keep hitting the white keys (going up to the right) E, F, G, A, B, and you are back to C. This should be at the next set of two black keys.

JOKE FOR THE DAY:

Why did the girl sit on the ladder to sing?
She wanted to reach the high notes!
