In this lesson, our instructor Laura Ryan goes through an introduction of major, minor, perfect, and numbered intervals. Laura begins the lesson with the major and minor intervals of the C Major Scale, including the major 2nd, major 3rd, perfect 4th, perfect 5th, major 6th, major 7th, and perfect octave. She adds that each interval has a set amount of half steps, and this fact can help students write and identify these intervals on the staff and the keyboard.
In a one octave major scale, a major interval is either a 2nd, 3rd, 6th or 7th. A perfect interval is a 4th, 5th or octave.
From the tonic note of a major scale, intervals may be numbered a 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th.
