Why did Eastern and Western music split?

The reason is a simple one: oil and water don’t mix. It’s not just that the sounds of Eastern instruments are different to Western ones. The whole way of thinking is different, so the word “music” actually means something different to “us” and “them”.

Why is there a semitone between E and F?

It’s still a semitone apart. We named our music system after the A minor scale, and then because of the way the minor scale is cosntructed there is only a half step difference between the 2 and 3 (B and C), as well as the 5 and 6 (E and F). This makes E and B only a semitone away from F and C.

Why is there no halftone between E and F?

This is because there are additional tones between C and D, D and E, F and G, G and A and A and B. Look at a piano keyboard and you will see this – in the above example it just so happens that the notes of the C scale are all the White notes, and the interspersed intervals are the Black notes.

IS F to GA semitone?

It is the shortest distance between two keys on your piano. It can be from black to white, white to black or white to white key, for example C# to D, F# to G and B to C, respectively. As long as the key you’re playing is to the immediate right or immediate left of another, the distance is a semitone.

Why is E# F?

So, while F might sound like E# when played and the former used to substitute the latter for ordinary purposes, E# and F are entirely two different notes and this is because both notes cannot be written on the same staff position. If E# is written on a line, F would be on a space and vice-versa.

What note is a semitone lower than C?

So, the distance or interval between C and C sharp/D flat is a semitone (or half step).
