Learn sheet music – Same tone

As you may have noticed from the fingering, some flat notes have the same finger's combination as some sharp notes!
How can this be possible?
We said that a sharp note is a half tone higher than the full note and a flat note is a half tone lower.
Let's look at the piano; you have white and black buttons on it.

The white buttons are full tones and the black are halftones.
As you can notice between 2 full tones there is only 1 half tone.
Thinking about sharps and flats we can say that the name of these black buttons depends from the side where we are watching the piano.
The result is that sharps are equal to flats.

So the previous sheet music can be summed up in this way.

On the sheet music as on the piano, the note becomes higher if we move from left to right.
We said that a sharp note is a half tone higher than the natural note, so we are going up.
On the ocarina we have the same movement, but from right to left.
Meaning that we have to open the holes from out right side to our left side in order to rise the pitch.

Now that you know sharps and flats it's time to have a closer look at the whole sheet music page to learn every thing that you may find on a real sheet music page.
Or if you want, you can take a look at the different kinds of notations that are used to wirte music.
