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!

🎹 Let's play CπŸ’š on the piano. Now count 8 notes going upwards, including CπŸ’š.

1 - C πŸ’š Do 2 - D ❀️️ Re 3 - E πŸ’™ Mi 4 - F 🍊 Fa 5 - G πŸ’œ So

6 - A πŸ’— La

7 - B πŸ’› Ti

8 - C πŸ’š Do

🎹 Now play only note number 1 and note number 8. They are both CπŸ’š !

That is an Octave

🎹 Now try the same with AπŸ’— .

Count 8 notes going upwards, including AπŸ’—.

1 - A πŸ’— La

2 - B πŸ’› Ti

3 - C πŸ’š Do 4 - D ❀️️ Re 5 - E πŸ’™ Mi 6 - F 🍊 Fa 7 - G πŸ’œ So

8 - A πŸ’— La

🎹 Now play only note number 1 and note number 8. They are both A πŸ’—!

That is an Octave too!

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

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