half step the smallest change of pitch in tonal music. the interval between to successive keys is always the same and this distance is known as half-step.
whole step an interval equal to two (2) half-steps.
half step from E to F
whole step from C to D
if sinabing sharp laging going to the right ang pagbibilang ng half step, kapag naman flat going to the left naman. always count starting from the position of your note, half step to the right if may sharp ( # ) sign, half step to the left if may flat ( b ) sign. start making yourself familiar with these symbols... ma-meet mo ulit sila sa mga susunod na lessons... nasa getting to know you stage palang tayo hehe ^_^v
