What is the enharmonic relation and which are the advantages that it offers?


The enharmonic equivalents

In the previous lessons we took an in-depth look at the tempered system. We are now able to understand why its introduction is necessary in music practice.

Today, other than this subject, we will look at the most important consequences linked to the use of the tempered system and learn about what is known as ‘enharmonic relation’.

As you will see, we will learn the huge potential of using enharmonic sounds in the development of harmony. Since 1700, all great composers have used in their composition the resource of enharmonic relation.

From today, you can learn how it is possible to use this.

Enjoy the lesson!
