What is an interval?
In music, an interval is the measure of distance between two notes. In this chapter, we will examine the different types of intervals. Intervals have a word, as well as a number associated with them. For example: Major 6th.
The number represents how far forward the second note is from the first in the Alphabet. The word, sometimes represented with a single letter, will describe the accidentals used on the second note of the pair.
