Are the intervals do-re and re-mi equal in size if we are tuning re-fa to be a minor third and re-sol to be a perfect fourth?

What is the interval between these two notes?





The interval (distance) between two notes, e.g., between C1 and C2 or F3 and F4 , is called an octave. When we go an octave up, we double the frequency. For example: A4 = 440 Hz.

What is the distance between Mi and Fa?

A half-tone is the distance between a note and the next one in the chromatic scale. There is a half-tone between mi and fa, and another between la and flat la, as well. When the distance grows to two adjacent half-tones, the difference is called a tone, like when we speak about the distance beween a re and a mi.

What is the name of the interval between E and D?

We can also flatten minor intervals by a semitone and they too become diminished. For example, E to D is a minor 7th, but if we make the D one semitone lower to a Db, it then becomes a diminished 7th. So just remember that: if we flatten a perfect interval by one semitone (half step) it becomes a diminished interval.

Do Re major second Do Mi major third?

Do do perfect unison, do re major second, do mi major third, do fa perfect fourth, do so perfect fifth, do la major sixth, do ti major seventh, do do’ perfect octave.

What interval is D to F?





D to Fn is one half step smaller than a MAJOR THIRD so it is a MINOR THIRD. Unisons, fourths, fifths and octaves can ONLY be PERFECT, DIMINISHED or AUGMENTED. They can NEVER be MAJOR or MINIOR. Seconds, thirds, sixths and sevenths can ONLY be MAJOR, MINOR, AUGMENTED or DIMINISHED.

What is interval size?

Every interval has a size and a quality. An interval’s size is the distance between two notes on a staff—i.e. it is a measurement of the number of lines and spaces between two notes.

How do you find intervals?

To determine the size of an interval, count the number of half steps between the two notes then refer to your memory. * A “tritone” is a generic name for an augmented fourth ( 4) or diminished fifth ( 5). These two intervals are enharmonic.

How do you remember ear intervals?

Perfect fifth minor sixth major sixth minor seventh major seventh and octave those are the ones you want to know and that's 13 of them now that's only 13 of one. So you have ascending.

What are intervals in singing?

An interval is the space between two pitches. In Western music, we measure that space using half-steps. The half-step is the smallest interval on Western instruments like the guitar and piano, since the frets or keys are set to be half-steps apart from one another.



What interval is F to B?

augmented fourth

F to B is also an augmented fourth (since F to Bb is a perfect fourth). Major intervals can be augmented by adding a half step. Major intervals can be augmented by adding a semitone. For example, since C to A is a major sixth (9 half steps), C to A# is an augmented sixth (10 half steps).

What interval is B to G?

6th intervals above note B



Short Medium Intervals ‘above’ statement
d6 dim6 The B to Gb interval is diminished 6th
m6 min6 The B to G interval is minor 6th
M6 maj6 The B to G# interval is major 6th
A6 aug6 The B to G## interval is augmented 6th


What is the interval between C and E?

The interval between C and E flat is a minor 3rd.

What interval is E to D sharp?

2nd intervals above note D-sharp

Short Medium Intervals ‘above’ statement
d2 dim2 The D# to Eb interval is diminished 2nd
m2 min2 The D# to E interval is minor 2nd
M2 maj2 The D# to E# interval is major 2nd
A2 aug2 The D# to E## interval is augmented 2nd




What is the interval between D and B?

So the interval from D to B is a sixth. If the interval is an 8th it can be written as an octave. If an interval notes are at the same pitch it is called a unison To start with all intervals will be an octave or less.

What interval is D to G?

a 4th

(or scale steps) between the notes: D and G. This means that the interval between these two notes is that of a 4th.

What notes are Do Re Mi?

In the major Romance and Slavic languages, the syllables Do, Re, Mi, Fa, Sol, La, and Si are used to name notes the same way that the letters C, D, E, F, G, A, and B are used to name notes in English.



What interval is G to F?

minor 7th

G to F natural is one semitone smaller, so it’s a minor 7th. G to F flat is two semitones smaller (than a major 7th), so it’s a diminished 7th.
