Another essential requirement is a Musical Frequency Chart. This chart provides the frequencies to which various musical notes should be tuned.

For instance, if you are crafting a C scale flute in the 4th octave, the corresponding musical notes are C, D, E, F, G, A, and B. To ensure precise tuning of the flute to these notes, it is crucial to be familiar with the frequencies associated with each of these musical notes.

For your convenience, we have included a handy Note to Frequency Converter tool. This tool enables you to effortlessly check the frequencies of each of these notes.

How to use Note to Frequency Converter

You can find the frequency of each note in two steps:

Step 1

Select the note for which you want to knwo th frequency from the ''Select Note'' box

Step 2

To specify the desired octave for flute-making, select "4th" from the "Select Octave" dropdown if you intend to make a flute in the 4th octave (Bass flute). Alternatively, choose "5th" if you plan to make a flute in the 5th octave (Medium flute).

What are the 12 notes in a scale?

In Western music, a scale consists of 12 notes known as the chromatic scale. These notes are C, C#/Db, D, D#/Eb, E, F, F#/Gb, G, G#/Ab, A, A#/Bb, and B. The scale encompasses all the natural notes as well as the sharps (#) and flats (b) in between. These 12 notes provide the basis for creating melodies, harmonies, and compositions in Western music, allowing for a diverse range of musical expressions and arrangements.

How do musical notes relate to frequency?

In music, each note is associated with a specific frequency. The relationship between musical notes and frequency follows a logarithmic scale in the equal-tempered tuning system, where each note's frequency is determined by multiplying or dividing the frequency of the preceding note by a constant factor. This ensures consistent intervals between notes and allows for harmonious compositions in different keys and scales.

What is the formula for frequency of music notes?

The frequency of a musical note can be calculated using the formula: Frequency = Reference Frequency * 2^(n/12), where the reference frequency is typically A440 (440 Hz), and 'n' represents the number of half-steps away from the reference note.

What are the 12 musical notes?

The 12 musical notes in Western music are: A, A#/Bb, B, C, C#/Db, D, D#/Eb, E, F, F#/Gb, G, and G#/Ab. These notes form the chromatic scale and serve as the foundation for creating melodies, harmonies, and musical compositions.

  1. Hello.
    I like the article very much! Am I right that the note frequencies will be the same for each flute key in the 4th octave (Bass flute) in the “Musical Note to Frequency Converter”? Is the difference between flute keys only in the notes that are included in the scale? I’m looking forward to your next articles!
