Welcome back, friends! In this episode of Music Mechanics, we’ll explore tonality, the tonic, what a tonal center is, and explain the difference between a tonic and a root. We’ll also discuss the importance of using specific terminology, atonality, reharmonization, remelodization, and the differences between a tonal center versus the key.
