musical alphabet

Today's lesson has two parts.  The first part teaches you the musical alphabet in relationship to a keyboard including the concept of sharps and flats.   Print out this music information sheet as a reference.
The second part teaches you what a chromatic scale is and the difference between a whole step and a half step.  The whole steps and half steps are very important in understanding major and minor scales which will be tomorrow's lesson.
