This course will become read-only in the near future. Tell us at if that is a problem.

Learning the Musical Alphabet

Every language has their own alphabet. And some use similar ones and even the same alphabet. Music also uses its own unique alphabet. But is easily recognizable. 

It starts on the letter A and goes until G.

Like so: A-B-C-D-E-F-G. It then repeats back to A, indefinitely.

The musical alphabet is/are the letter notes that you read in music. They are the notes that you play, and write as well. Every instrument (including voice) uses these letters and these letters/notes are all a very specific pitch/sound. And they are all very different.

You should memorize this sequence of notes/letters. It will help with reading, playing, and writing for later on.

TASK: In the task discussion area I want everyone to write at least 3 words they can make with these letters!
