Introduction to Music Theory!

Hi there. Another lesson from me. Today we’ll discussing music theory. Music theory is very easy to understand.

In music the first thing you have to remember is the following alphabets:


These are the natural notes in music. This means they’re not sharp or flat. Always remember that except B and E, you’ll have sharp of all the notes. The symbol used for sharp is #

So let’s revise the above notes again as the following:

A, A#,B,C,C#D,D#,E,F,F#,G,G#

The above can also be called as keys. If you count them, you’ll notice that they’re 12. These are twelve keys in music. This means, that there are twelve scales in music. This is true for anything. Please note you’ll need to know this no matter which instrument you learn. You can sing in twelve different scales.

This is true for all musical instruments such as, piano, violin, guitar, harmonica etc. So this is very important.

It would be good if you can remember all these keys and It would be beneficial if you memorize them.

That’s all for now. I’ll post another lesson soon and will give the complete knowledge of music theory.
