Why No One Talks About The Circle of Fourths Anymore. Here’s how to view it in Tessitura Pro App

Almost every musician knows how to use the circle of fifths (and what it is), but there are a few countries and music schools that teach the order of the notes in the circle going the other way. This is called the Circle of Fourths and not many musicians talk about it anymore.

Here are the two versions of the circle. The one on the left is the most often-used version we all know as the Circle of Fifths, and the one on the right is the Circle of Fourths


In Tessitura Pro you can change the defaults settings to show all scales in any key using the Circle of Fifths or the Circle of Fourths
