In addition, fixing notes to standard #frequencies (required for instrument makers) has varied as well. #ConcertA was set at 435 Hz by France in 1859 while in England, concert A varied between 439 and 452 Hz. A frequency of #440Hz was recommended as the standard in 1939, and in 1955 the International Organization for Standardization affirmed the choice. #A440 is now widely, though not exclusively, used as the A above middle C.

#Musictheory is the study of the #structure of constructed music. Music theorists look for patterns and structures in composers' works across or within genres, styles, or historical periods. Music theory distills and analyzes the fundamental parameters or elements of music—rhythm, harmony (harmonic function), melody, structure, form, and texture. Broadly, music theory may include any statement, belief, or conception of or about music. Music may also be understood from the viewpoint of acoustics, human physiology, and psychology.
