Intervals (part 1)

Intervals – (Part 1 of 4)

An “interval” describes the distance between notes in terms of pitch not in terms of time.

The distance between A and C is a third because it includes three letter names: A, B, C. The distance from B to F is a fifth

because it includes five letter names: B, C, D, E, F. It doesn’t matter if it’s Bb to F, or B to F#, or B# to Fb, all of those are a fifth because there is some kind of B going to some kind of F.
