Sight Reading Basic Exercise 5

Melody Notes

Ties affect the way we read accidentalAny named note whose pitch is modified by a sharp (♯) or flat (♭) symbol. This even includes notes that are returned to a non-sharp or non-flat by the natural symbol (♮).s. If a note is modified by an accidental in the previous measure, and that note is tied over into the current measure, then the current measure continues to be modified by the accidental as well. This can be seen in the B♭ extending to measure 7.

Technically, the flat sign is not required again in measure 7 because it was already written in measure 6 and it got carried over by the tie. However, in practice, the flat is often written redundantly, for extra clarity—as it is in this example.
