Interval studies

Intervals are what melodic lines are made from. We hope we can help you with these basic building blocks of music. These are good exercises for developing your 'ear'. You might like to use them also as breathing exercises. Try each one in as many breaths as you need. Then fewer and fewer until you can sing along with the whole track in one breath. Try different vowel sounds or syllables too.

When you listen to them you will hear:

  • first the two notes played separately
  • next, the second note added to the first
  • then, the effect created by the two notes played together
  • lastly, the notes harmonised over and over so that you can hear them in different contexts.
