Do not proceed past this
point without making sure you can find intervals for 2^{nds},
4^{ths} and 5^{ths}. Practice until it is quick and
easy to find a Major or minor 2^{nd}, Perfect 4^{th}
or a Perfect 5^{th} above or below any given note. If you
want to study music, you will not regret being able to spell
intervals like a pro. If you give your due diligence to this course,
you will be very pleased with the results.
Practice drilling until you
can quickly construct these intervals for any given note. The
answer charts page has interval charts with answers for intervals above or
below all notes and also list a page with WolframAlpha practice
widgets. Use those charts to check you answers when
drilling. To drill, just randomly pick a note, an interval (above or
below) then name the note that is the chosen interval above or below
the note you picked and check your answer with the charts or spell
your interval into the widget then click submit to verify your
answer.
**IMPORTANT**
**To Practice:** The best
way to practice the intervals you know so far is to randomly pick a
root note and an interval above or below that note (Major 2^{nd},
Major or minor 3^{rd}, Perfect 5^{th} or Perfect 4^{th}).
Then name a series of ascending intervals as quickly as you can. For
example, if you picked Major 2^{nd} above A, then name a
series of major 2^{nds} above A starting with B. Then above
B is C#.
Above C#
is D#
then E#,
F##,
G##
and you are back to A. If you hit triple sharps or flats, you can
pick a new starting note and do the same interval again, or just
pick a whole new interval and root to do the exercise again. Use the
interval answer charts for intervals above
and below a note to check your answers.
