Tones and semitones • The distance between two adjacent notes is a semitone • It doesn’t matter if the notes are white-black or white-white • So the distance between two white notes with no black note in between is 1 semitone, just as the distance between a white and a nearby black note is 1 semitone • This is because they are adjacent (there is nothing in between)
We have seen • A semitone is the distance between two adjacent (nearby) keys • A tone is two semitones, usually the distance between two white notes (if they have a black note in between them)
