Tone vs. Intonation

The words tone and intonation are sometimes confused. I hope these definitions clear it up for you!

Tone is the quality of sound. We always strive for beautiful tone or sound on our instrument.

Intonation is the tuning of a pitch/note. Good intonation means a note is in tune. Bad intonation means a note is out of tune.
