* It is advisable to read the following modules before attempting questions on intervals:
In music theory the term interval describes the relationship between the pitches of two notes. Intervals may be described as:
- Harmonic – if the two notes sound simultaneously.
- Melodic – if the notes sound successively.
We always count intervals from the lower note to the higher note.
The interval of two notes can be found by counting the degrees of the scale they contain. For example C to G would be an interval of a 5th (remember to include the first and last notes when counting).
