Joy of learning music
Pitch is what is produced when you strike a string on the guitar or play a single key on the piano or any note in the musical alphabet of any instrument on planet earth. Pitch is produced when the wave produced by the instrument oscillates several times (which is several hundred times called frequency). For example. If an object oscillates 440 times in a seecond it will produce THE MUSICAL ALPHABET PITCH CALLED “A”
Here’s an example of the pitches and the musical alphabet with its piano key allocation
Rhythm is the length and accent given to a series of notes in a piece. Unlike the BEAT which is steady pulse like counting in time. Let me give you examples of this steady beat… The human heartbeat, the ticking clock. Conclusion of PITCH VALUE and
RHYTHM VALUE. Just like pitch is named as musical alphabets. Rhythm has value in time telling us how long or how short a musical sound should occur.
Example if the pitch value tells me what musical alphabet (note) needs to be played on an instrument, and then time value tells us how long to play that note.
