Presentation Transcript

  1. AP Music Theory Chapter 2 – Part 3

  2. Tonality • Organized system of tones in which one tone (the TONIC) becomes the central point to which the other tones are related. • Another word: tonal center.

  3. Key • Tonal system based on the major and minor scales. • However, tonality can be present scales other than major and minor.

  4. Pentatonic Scales • 5-tone scale • A gapped scale, one that contains intervals of more than a step between adjacent pitches. • Incomplete major scale • The sequence of black keys on the keyboard coincides with the interval relationship of the pentatonic scale.

  5. Pentatonic Scales

  6. Non-Diatonic Scales • Chromatic Scale is a nondiatonic scale consisting entirely of half-step intervals. • Has no tonic. Each note equidistant from the next.

  7. CHROMATIC SCALE

  8. WHOLE TONE SCALE • Six-tone scale made up entirely of whole steps.

  9. BLUES SCALE • Chromatic variant of the major scale with a flat 3rd and a flat 7th.
