Lecture Description

In this video lesson, Instructor Pete Pidgeon will explain what are Music Intervals. These are the distance between tow musical notes in relation to the major scale.

Video Transcript: PETE PIDGEON: "In this series I am going to discuss intervals, which are the distance between two notes in relation to the major scale. Now, since there are seven notes in a major scale, there are going to be seven intervals that we're going to either define or slightly deviate from by a half step up or down. We'll talk about unisons. We'll talk about minor and major seconds. We'll talk about a minor and major third. We'll talk about the perfect fourth and why we use the terminology perfect instead of major sometimes. We'll talk about diminished and perfect fifths and why we use the word diminished instead of minor sometimes. We'll talk about minor sixths and major sixths and we'll also talk about minor sevenths and major sevenths and all the way up to an octave, which would be the same as the first note, but an octave higher."
