Musical Alphabet

Run time: 4m 23s  |  Release Date: June 18th, 2012

The musical alphabet is a series of 7 letters spanning from the letter A to the letter G.

When reading and writing music, we use letters to identify different pitches, or notes. In musical notation there is no H, I, J, K or anything after the letter G. Rather, after G we simply go back to the letter A and then start the pattern all over again.

For a clearer reference, let’s take a look at the notes on a piano.This key here is the note A. Remembering that each note follows in alphabetical order, the note after A will be the note B. After the note B comes C. After C follows D. Then E, F, and G.

Which letter do you think is found on the next key? Remember, the musical alphabet only goes from the letter A to the letter G. After G we simply go back to the letter A and start all over again.
