How to find Frequency of Any Music note (Formula + Examples)

how to find frequency of music notes

Hello Guys,

In this article, we will learn a method of finding out the frequency of any note from any music scale. We know that music note is nothing but a music sound frequency which is generated by vibrations. So when some one says that a note is being played, then, it means that a particular frequency is generated from that instrument.

What is the audible frequency range of a human ear?

We all have studied that human ear can listen any frequency between 20 Hertz to 20,000 Hertz. So any frequency between these numbers can be listened by a human being. All music we listen, (in fact, everything we listen from our ears) is between 20 Hz and 20 KHz (20000 Hz).

Does musical notes have fixed frequency?

Answer is Yes! Every note comes in a certain octave and every note has its fixed frequency. For example A Note of 4th octave has 440 Hz frequency. (Frequency of A4=440 Hz). Like wise, frequency of A5 (A note of 5th octave) is 880 Hz. So the same note in the consecutive higher octave have just double frequency then the previous. It means:

Frequency of A6 Note = 2 X Frequency of A5 Note = 2 X 880 Hz = 1760 Hz.

So by musical frequency law, an octave has 12 notes, which are equally spaced from its lower and higher nearest notes.

It means:-

A5/G#5 (1 semitone difference notes) = G#5/G5 (1 semitone difference notes) (The ratio will be same with reference to the steps)

How to find Frequency Relation from a Known Musical Note?

Okay, now we have seen that when an octave is completed; the frequency get doubled. So how to find the formula for the increment of the frequency in the octave (divide the increment in the each half step equally so that the ratio remains same for two consecutive notes). You can understand it better from following steps:

Since the frequency is doubled after one octave (after 12 notes or half steps or semitones), we have to find out the increment in such a way that the ratio of any two consecutive note’s frequency, remain same in all the octaves. It means we have to find out 12th root of the number 2, because the frequency is doubled just after 12 notes, Understand this in the way:
[12th root of 2] if, multiplied 12 times to self = results in 2 (it means ((2^(1 ÷ 12))^12) = 2)

12th root of 21.05946309436 (Lets say its 1.059463)

It means 1.059463 multiplied to self 12 times = 2 ((1.059463^12)=2)

Hence any note’s frequency from a known note frequency will be: f(n) = f(0) * (a)n

Where f(0) = Frequency of any known note o

f(n) = Required and unknown frequency of any note which is n half steps away from f(o)

n = number of half steps between f(n) and f(0) (it may be in minus too if f(n)<f(0))

a= 12th root of 2 or 1.059463 (this is the approximate ratio of two consecutive notes anywhere in music)

Example of finding out Frequency of any Musical Note from Above Formula

Example I (frequency of any note above a known frequency note)

Lets say, we know the frequency of A4 note which is 440 Hz.

Consider that, we have to find out the frequency of D5 note.

So f(n) = f(D5)

f(0) = f(A4) = 440 Hz

n = number of half-steps between A4 and D5

So let us accend in the order : A4A#4B4C5C#5D5. So there are total 5 Half Steps between D5 and A4.

hence = +5 (because f(n)>f(o))

And a = constant = 1.059463

So lets put all the values together in the formula:

f(n) = f(0) * (a)n

f(D5) = 440 * (1.059463)^5

f(D5) = 440 * 1.33483925974 = 587.329274287 OR 587.329 Hz approximately ANSWER

Example II (frequency of any note below a known frequency note)

Lets say, we know the frequency of A4 note which is 440 Hz.

Consider that, we have to find out the frequency of D4 note.

So f(n) = f(D4)

f(0) = f(A4) = 440 Hz

n = number of half-steps between A4 and D4

So let us ascend in the order : D4D#4E4F4F#4G4G#4A4. So there are total 7 Half Steps between D4 and A4.

hence = -7 (because f(n)<f(o))

And a = constant = 1.059463

So lets put all the values together in the formula:

f(n) = f(0) * (a)n

f(D4) = 440 * (1.059463)^-7

f(D4) = 440 * 0.66742034318 = 293.664951001 OR 293.665 Hz approximately ANSWER

So you can find out any notes frequency from the above given formula, provided that you have a reference note frequency.

संगीत जल्दी कैसे सीखे अपनाइए इन 10 टिप्स को!

guitar man how to learn music fast at home 10 ten tips

संगीत जल्दी कैसे सीखे

दोस्तों आपने देखा होगा कि आपके कई दोस्त या आप खुद भी कई बार कोई म्यूजिक इंस्ट्रूमेंट खरीद लेते हैं जैसे गिटार या पियानो और कितने हफ्ते महीने या साल भी अगर ho जाएं तो भी आपको महसूस होता है कि जो सीखने की जो स्पीड है या नॉलेज है वह नहीं बढ़ा है. 1 साल से, 2 साल से, 5 साल से, मैंने कई लोगों को देखा है.

दोस्तों, जो 5 साल से भी गिटार बजा रहे हैं, लेकिन जब वह भी बजाते हैं तो उनको देखकर के लगता है कि जैसे उन्होंने पिछले हफ्ते शुरू किया होगा तो ऐसा क्यों होता है? क्यों कुछ लोग म्यूजिक बहुत जल्दी नहीं सीख पाते हैं? कैसे वह म्यूजिक सीखने की स्पीड बढ़ाएं? इन सभी चीजों को ध्यान में रखकर, आज मैं आपके लिए एक आर्टिकल लिखने जा रहा हूं.

List Price:Price Not Listed
Kindle Edition:Check Amazon for Pricing Digital Only

तो दोस्तों, सबसे पहले मैं आपको यह बताना चाहता हूं कि बहुत सारे लोग हैं, जो यह पूछते हैं कि मैं कितने दिन में गिटार बजाना सीख जाऊंगा या में कितने दिन में पियानो बजाना सीख जाऊंगा, तो दोस्तों इस बात का जवाब देने से पहले मैं पूछना चाहूंगा, कि आप कितना टाइम गिटार या पियानो या, और भी जो म्यूजिक इंस्ट्रूमेंट आप बजाना चाह रहे हो, उसको दे सकते हो? और अगर आपका जवाब होगा कि मैं 4 घंटे/ 5 घंटे/ 6 घंटे और मैक्सिमम टाइम दे सकता हूं तो मुझे आपको बताने में खुशी होगी कि आप 6 महीने में बहुत ही अच्छा म्यूजिक सीख जाओगे. तो चलिए आपको क्या करना होगा? मैं आगे आपके लिए 10 टिप्स लिख रहा हूं और वह कुछ इस तरह से हैं.

संगीत सीखने के बेहतरीन तरीके

1. पहली चीज ध्यान देने वाली है कि आपको म्यूजिक Theory का अच्छा नॉलेज होना चाहिए, म्यूजिक Theory अगर अच्छी है तो आप बहुत ही जल्दी म्यूजिक सीख सकते हैं. अगर आपको पूरे कंसेप्ट पता है म्यूजिक Theory के तो आपको बहुत ही आसानी होगी इन सब चीजों को समझने में.

2. आपको हमेशा लालायित रहना पड़ेगा सीखने के लिए. यानी कि आपके मन में इच्छा होनी चाहिए एक Curiosity होनी चाहिए कि मुझे म्यूजिक सीखना है और जब आप में वह इच्छा होगी तो आप खुद ब खुद सीख कर चले जाओगे.

3. अगला पॉइंट है हमेशा म्यूजिक के प्रति आपको डेडीकेटेड या समर्पित रहना होगा, और धैर्य भी रखना होगा. अक्सर देखा जाता है कि लोग कुछ दिन तक गिटार बजाते हैं और फिर छोड़ देते हैं और थोड़े दिन बाद में वह सब कुछ भूल जाते हैं, और जब अगली बार गिटार उठाते हैं तो फिर उन्हें जीरो से स्टार्ट करना पड़ता है. इसके लिए आपको हमेशा प्रैक्टिस करनी होगी. आपको धैर्य रखना पड़ेगा.

4. आपको यह बात स्वीकार करनी पड़ेगी की प्रेक्टिस से ही आप म्यूजिक सिख सकते हैं. आपको प्रैक्टिस अधिक से अधिक करनी पड़ेगी. जितना आप समय दे सकते हैं उतना आपको देना पड़ेगा और नतीजा कुछ ही दिन में आप के सामने आ जाएगा.

5. कहीं से भी आप को सीखने को मिल रहा है तो आप सीखिए. जरूरी नहीं कि आप कहीं कोचिंग में सीखते हैं और बस वही के नोट्स के साथ में चिपके हुए हैं. आपको अगर और कहीं से भी सीखने को मिल रहा है, जैसे इंटरनेट, tv, ब्लॉग्स तो आप वहां से भी सीखिए.

संगीत

6. किसी एक इंस्ट्रूमेंट से आप शुरुआत कीजिए. चाहे वह गिटार हो, पियानो हो, या फ्लूट हो और.. Jab aap उसके पूरे नियम समझ जाओ, तब फिर अगला इंस्ट्रूमेंट बजाने के लिए ले सकते हो.

7. आपको स्केल और कोड्स सीखनी पड़ेगी. स्केल और कोड्स बहुत ही महत्वपूर्ण हैं जो एक संगीतकार को आनी चाहिए.

8. आपको हमेशा कम से कम तीन-चार घंटे या 1 हफ्ते में लगभग 25 से 30 घंटे प्रैक्टिस करनी चाहिए और अगर आप इतनी प्रेक्टिस कर रहे हो तो मैं यकीनन कह सकता हूं कि आप 6 महीने में बहुत ही अच्छे संगीतकार बन सकते हैं.

9. आपको कभी भी हतोत्साहित नहीं होना है. कोई कुछ भी कहे, कोई कितना ही नेगेटिव बात करें, कोई कितना ही कहे कि आप नहीं सीख सकते, आप नहीं सीख सकते, लेकिन फिर भी आपको प्रैक्टिस करते रहना है.. और यही सफलता की कुंजी है.

10. अपने आप में विश्वास रखिए: कोई कुछ भी कहे आपके बारे में, आप वही सोचिए जो आप सोचते हैं, कोई कितना भी कहे कि आप नहीं सीख सकते म्यूजिक, लेकिन आपको पता है कि आप सीख सकते हैं. आप भी एक अच्छे संगीतकार बन सकते हैं. और हो सकता है वह समय बहुत ही जल्दी आने वाला हो.
