EAR TRAINING 002: Perfect and Major Intervals

 NEW  Musicians learn the importance of being able to internalize rhythm early on. The same must also be done with the ability to accurately listen to and recognize musical, tone and pitch. The EAR TRAINING course offered at Creative Guitar will help guitar players drastically improve their sense of note identification, recognition and recall...

Lesson 002 of Ear Training Learn how to hear the Major Scale intervals: Practice associating and recognizing Major and Perfect intervals on the guitar fingerboard and on the piano keyboard.

This guitarists ear training course is not designed to be used as a "beginners" note recognition program.

If you are a guitarist who has no background in basic music theory, key signatures, treble-clef staff /note recognition, or foundational rhythmic duration, then it is advised that prior to working on this course, you study the "Introductory" and "Intermediate" guitar player programs prior to working on this course.

Those preliminary courses, (for beginners and Intermediate players), will lay the foundation for understanding how the nuts and bolts of ear training relate musically and how the principles relate to guitar (as well as other instruments).

preliminary courses will also help guitar players better comprehend rhythm duration and key signatures.

(1). Part one, of lesson two Ear Training develops associations for "Perfect" intervals. Popular songs are used to associate the sound of perfect 4th's, 5th's and octaves.

(2). Part two, adds the association of Major intervals. Common, well-known musical pieces are once again used as a way to tie together the relationship of the major intervals including; Major 2nd's, 3rd's, 6th's and 7th's.

(3). Part three, begins working on the recognition of the Perfect intervals. Diagrams of the guitar neck and the piano keyboard are used to show the layout on our instruments. Use the diagrams to match pitch and recognize the associated songs covered in Part One.

(4). Part four, targets Major interval recognition through the use of associative melody. Diagrams of the fingerboard and piano are once again utilized for demonstrating the Major intervals upon each instrument.

(5). Audio Track Training Exercises: Use the MP3 audio tracks (contained within the lesson download), to study the sound of mixed Perfect and Major intervals. 

The intervals from the table provided on page 5 of your PDF handout are performed upon the guitar and digital piano. Sing and match pitch to each interval as they are performed on the audio tracks.
