Another question about intervals.
October 18, 2007 06:52PM
Hello everyone,

I know there's already several threads on the topic of intervals, but my question is a bit different.

Would anyone be able to suggest the quickest and most effective way of memorizing intervals? I've memorized my key signatures for the most part (I still have a need to resort to the tricks of half a step up for sharps and second to last for flats, but it's much much better then I was), but I can't for the life of me figure out a way of going about this for intervals. Basically, what ways have you found to be most effective for you? The actual interval itself is easy, it's the quality I have trouble with. I know, memorizing is memorizing and there's no way to get around it, but I just am having trouble developing a method to going about doing this.

Thanks alot in advance for any help you can provide.

Hi, Idon't think there is any quick method or fornula for memorising screeds of Intervals or their names and/or construction. I take it that you are studying music in order to pass exams or some such endeavour.Passing exams in order to be able to write music seriously, and/or professionaly, or additionally Play music, is an admirable thing But, in my humble opinion learning about intervals is practically useless as an aid to music knowledge-especially if one is studying to be a top class musician and/or instumentalist. Studying Intervals and other boring details, is only useful in order to be able to pass even more exams!in order to pass even more boring exams
