Keyboard Lesson 2: 3 Octaves

There are 3 sets of Sa, Re, Ga, Ma, Pa, Dha, Ni called 3 octaves.


In this lesson, we learn the meaning of the 3 octaves in music, and their importance - for example, when we talk casually, we talk in middle pitch (middle octave). When we want to convey some sad, serious or important message, our pitch naturally goes down (lower octave). On the contrary, when we want to show aggression, anger, joy or patriotism our pitch goes up (upper octave).

Similarly in music, 3 octaves are used to express different moods. Let's learn this and more in our lesson about octaves!
