Tonal memory

Home | Up

In music, tonal memory is the recollection of a previously sounded tone (Gorow 2002, p.35). It is an important skill that assists with staying in tune and is developed through ear training. Extensive tonal memory is often used as an indication of potential compositional ability (Haroutounian 2002, p.74).
