Perfect Fifths Writing by Name



Perfect Fifths

In the next set of lessons, you will be asked to write perfect 5ths in music notation.

As we learned before both notes will usually have the same accidental.

That is both will be sharp, both will be flat, or both will be natural.

Remember B to F is a diminished 5th.

That means if the lower note is Bb, the upper note will be F.

Or, if the lower note is B, the upper note will be F#.

Fifths are very easy to write in music notation.

If the lower note is on a space, the upper note will always be two spaces above.

If the lower note is on a line, the upper note will always be two lines above.
