Tritones – Reading


The next interval we will learn is called a Tritone.

A tritone is larger than a 4th, but smaller than a 5th.

Therefore, it can be thought of as a 4 that is sharp, or a 5 that is flat.

A Tritone is also equivalent to 6 half steps, or 3 whole steps.

By themselves, Tritones have a rather harsh, dissonant sound.
