Learn about Octaves - 1, 8!

Hi mums and dads! Welcome to another lesson with Fun-Keys 4 Kids. This week we learn what is an OCTAVE .

An Octave are 2 notes with 8 notes between them.

For example!

๐ŸŽน Let's play C๐Ÿ’š on the piano. Now count 8 notes going upwards, including C๐Ÿ’š.

1 - C ๐Ÿ’š Do 2 - D โค๏ธ๏ธ Re 3 - E ๐Ÿ’™ Mi 4 - F ๐ŸŠ Fa 5 - G ๐Ÿ’œ So

6 - A ๐Ÿ’— La

7 - B ๐Ÿ’› Ti

8 - C ๐Ÿ’š Do

๐ŸŽน Now play only note number 1 and note number 8. They are both C๐Ÿ’š !

That is an Octave

๐ŸŽน Now try the same with A๐Ÿ’— .

Count 8 notes going upwards, including A๐Ÿ’—.

1 - A ๐Ÿ’— La

2 - B ๐Ÿ’› Ti

3 - C ๐Ÿ’š Do 4 - D โค๏ธ๏ธ Re 5 - E ๐Ÿ’™ Mi 6 - F ๐ŸŠ Fa 7 - G ๐Ÿ’œ So

8 - A ๐Ÿ’— La

๐ŸŽน Now play only note number 1 and note number 8. They are both A ๐Ÿ’—!

That is an Octave too!

๐ŸŽน You can try with any note on the piano. If you count 8 you will always get to its Octave.

๐ŸŽน If you count 8 upwards you will get an Octave Higher. If you count 8 downwards you will get an Octave Lower
