Harmony is HOW SOUNDS BLEND TOGETHER.
In music, we take the MELODY and add HARMONY to make it more interesting.
The first four flats in order spell the work BEAD!
The last three flats are the initials of a very familiar Math term:
Greatest Common Factor: GCF
The order of flats are BEADGCF
The order of Sharps:
if you know your flats, you know your sharps. The order of Sharps is the same as the flats only backwards.
There are two ways to find out what Key we are all playing in.
For the Flats, we locate the last flat in the key signature and go back one. The name of that flat is what key we are in.
Ex. Four flats, BEAD. The last flat is D. The second to the last flat is A. We are in the key of Ab.
NAME THE KEY:
Ex. There are 2 sharps in the key. F and C. The last sharp is C#. We raise that note by one half step up to D.
Ex. We have 3 Sharps. F, C, G. The last sharp is G#. We raise G# up one half step to the key of A!
