Mediant

Not Rated Yet

The mediant is the third note on a heptatonic scale.

The mediant is called so as it is the middle of the tonic triad (the main chord built on the root of the scale). For example, the tonic triad in the major scale in C is composed of C, E, and G, and the mediant of the major C scale is E.
