Learning objectives • What a semitone is • What a tone is

A piano keyboard C D E F G A B C D

A piano keyboard E F B C

Tones C D 1 Semitone

Tones C D 1 more Semitone

Tones C D Total! 1 Tone

Tones • Between any two notes that have a black note between them there is 1 Tone! • What about those that don’t have a black note between them?

Semitones E F 1 Semitone

Semitones E F Total! 1 Semitone

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)
