  • Tonic - Glossary Term

    The tonic is the first note of the scale used to build a piece of music. This note, and corresponding chord, gives us a sense of resolution in music. We often refer to this as "home base." For example, in the key of A, the root of the main chord is A, therefore the tonic is A.
