MUSIC THEORY – Frequency, Wave Shape and Pitch

In this music theory animated tutorial made by Walk That Bass, you are going to learn what are frequency, wave shape and pitch. Sound waves generally have four main qualities:

-> Frequency – determines Pitch
-> Wave shape – determines Timbre
-> Amplitude – determines Volume
-> Phase – determines how sound wave interact.

If a string vibrates back and forth 200 times a second, it is causing or emitting 200 sound waves per second. And the number of sound waves that pass a fixed point per second (or the number of times a string vibrates per second) is called the ‘frequency’ and is measured in Hertz. So our string is vibrating at 200 Hz. Frequency and Wavelength determines the pitch of the sound.
