Word of the Day

by Erica Papillion-Posey

Interval: How long it takes to find the right note. There are three types:

1. Major interval-  a long time
2. Minor interval- a few bars
3. Inverted Interval- when you have to go back a bar and try again

(HA! Just joking, okay for real now.)

Interval (noun): An interval is the audible “distance” between two pitches or notes. The simplest intervals include half steps and whole steps. An octave is a large interval that separates two of the same notes; two Cs are an octave apart. there are five types: major, minor, perfect, diminished and augmented.
