Section 1

Question Answer
0 half steps =Perfect Unison
1 half step =Minor 2nd
2 half steps =Major 2nd
(2 +1) = 3 half steps =Augmented 2nd (Enharmonic)
(4 - 1) = 3 half steps =Minor 3rd (Enharmonic)
4 half steps =Major 3rd
Enharmonic meansSame sound (intervals), but different notation
memorize

Section 2

Question Answer
4 half steps =Major 3rd
5 half steps =Perfect 4th
(5 + 1) = 6 half steps =Augmented 4th (Enharmonic)
(7 - 1) = 6 half steps =Diminished 5th (Enharmonic)
7 half steps =Perfect 5th
Enharmonic meansSame sound (intervals), but different notation
memorize

Section 3

Question Answer
7 half steps =Perfect 5th
(7 + 1) = 8 half steps =Augmented 5th (Enharmonic)
(9 - 1) = 8 half steps =Minor 6th (Enharmonic)
9 half steps =Major 6th
memorize

Section 4

Question Answer
9 half steps =Major 6th
(9 + 1) = 10 half steps =Augmented 6th (Enharmonic)
(11 - 1) = 10 half steps =Minor 7th (Enharmonic)
11 half steps =Major 7
12 half steps =Octave
memorize

Section 5

Question Answer
Major interval minus 1/2 step =Minor interval
Minor interval minus 1/2 step =Diminished interval
Perfect interval minus 1/2 step =Diminished interval
Perfect interval plus 1/2 step =Augmented interval
Major interval plus 1/2 step =Augmented interval
Minor interval plus 1/2 step =Major interval
memorize

Section 6

Question Answer
Name two Perfect intervals4th, 5th
Perfect interval + 1/2 =Augmented interval
Perfect interval - 1/2 =Diminished interval
How many 1/2 step intervals are in a:
Major Third4
Perfect 4th5
Perfect 5th7
Major 6th9
Major 7th11
memorize

Section 7

Question Answer
Name the 7 types of intervalsOctave, Perfect, Major, Minor, Augmented, Diminished
Minor 3rd sounds the same asAugmented 2nd
Minor 6th sounds the same asAugmented 5th
Minor 7th sounds the same asAugmented 6th
Minor Interval is the same as Diminished Never
Minor interval minus 1/2 stepDiminished interval
Perfect interval minus 1/2 stepDiminished interval
memorize

Section 8

Question Answer
one half step is a Minor 2nd
4 half steps =Major 3rd
3 half steps =Minor 3rd
5 half steps =Perfect 4th
7 half steps =Perfect 5
8 half steps =Augmented 5th
9 half steps =Major 6th
8 half steps =Minor 6th
10 half steps =Augmented 6th
11 half steps =Major 7th
10 half steps =Minor 7th
12 half steps =Octave
