Enharmonic Equivalents

Classical Voice Conservatory- Theory 1

what do those big words mean
What do Those Big Words Mean?
  • Enharmonic Equivalent is a fancy way of saying two notes that share the same pitch but have a different spelling.
  • It is essential that you understand this definition and are able to verbally define it.
here s an example
Here’s an Example…..
  • Here you can see we have two different notes.
slide4

Eb and D# are enharmonic equivalents because even though they look totally different on paper, they sound exactly the same.

  • On the piano, they are even the same key.

There it is!!

slide8

Recall the sharp sign. A sharp sign next to a note tells us that the note must be played or sung a half step higher.

  • On the piano, F is just a half step up from E. Therefore, F and E# are the same pitch, but as you can see, a different spelling.

Half Step!

slide9

It also works in reverse.

  • Since E is a half step DOWN from F, E’s enharmonic equivalent is Fb.
slide10

But they sound exactly the same and on the piano are played on the exact same key.

Half Step Down!!

E and Fb!
