TOPIC: Music Theory zoom class #2

Music Theory zoom class #2 3 weeks 5 days ago #10034

In the third class of Music Theory and Appreciation we discussed the following:

We reviewed some of the the tuning of instruments.

Next, the Circle of 5ths was introduced. Each student drew the Circle on a piece of paper.

Next, The Circle of 5ths and Cycle of Forths was discussed, in relation to the Major scale.


Here are some questions that you can all answer below:

1. What key word can we use to draw the Circle of 5ths?

2. Why is it called the Circle of 5ths and Cycles of Forths

3. How can you use the Circle to create a major scale?

4. What is an interval and how does it relate to tonal and semi-tonal movement?

5. What major scale does not have Sharps and Flats?

6. What are the different tunings for some of the instruments discussed

See you At our next zoom class.

Using the Circle of Fifths/Cycle of 4ths to find the notes in a scale. I’m going to use C as the example because I know it has no sharps or flats.

Let me see if I got this right.....Let me know if I didn’t.

Go counter-clockwise one note from the C to F, then draw a line across the Circle. All the notes on the scale will be on the right hand side of the Circle. There are no sharps or flats on that side.

Starting at C on the Circle, the notes on either side of C are G (clockwise) and F (counter-clockwise). Because each note going clockwise is the 5th note of the note before its scale and, going counter-clockwise, each note is the 4th note of the scale of the note before it. So C is the 1, F is the 4 and G is the 5 of the scale.

The next step is to start at C and Leapfrog to every other note; C is 1, D is 2, E is 3. Next, starting from C again, go counter-clockwise one note from C to F, the leapfrog notes again going clockwise. From F, which is the 4 which we know already, we get to G, which is the 5, which we know already, leapfrogging again, A is the 6th and B is the 7th.

Please forgive my grammar and my wordiness but if I made a mistake these directions, let me know and make any corrections that are needed. You won’t hurt my feelings. I’m still trying to figure this Circle of 5th out.
