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.

Here’s an Example…..

  • Here you can see we have two different notes.


  • 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.

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