(musTh1) Notes: Pitch

Concepts, Terms to know about Pitch:

  • Pitch: the relative highness or lowness of sounds.
  • Pitch Register: c4 = middle C on the keyboard. Numbers increase going up octaves.
  • Pitch Class: any C (or other pitch), in any register.
  • Diatonic Pitch Collection = the natural, or white-key collection of pitches.
  • Enharmonic spellings: (we didn’t go over this yet) Different spellings of an identical sounding pitch. A# and Bb sound the same, for example, and are enharmonic spellings of the same pitch class.

You should be able to identify pitches in Treble, Bass, Tenor, and Alto clefs.
