Overview

Okay, read this -> '#'. Did you read it as "hashtag"... or... "sharp"? In music, we read it as "sharp". Now, try reading this one -> 'b'. It IS a small letter "B", but in music, we read it as "flat". Both sharp and flat are called the accidentals.

How many of them do you think there are in music? 5? 12? 84? How to write a song? Let's find out what they mean, how they are to be taken, and why they are there in the first place!
