Major and Minor Intervals – Lesson #2


In an earlier post, The Degrees Of A Scale – Lesson # 1, we learned a more formal way to express the movement from one note in a scale to another. Seems pretty simple but you also have to deal with the pitches that are in between the basic notes. These pitches are called sharps and flats and to get a visual of this concept think of the black keys on a keyboard which represent these notes.

  • When a note is flattened it is called a minor interval.

  • When a note is played in its natural state it is called a major interval.

Next week we will be reviewing perfect intervals.
