READING MUSIC 3 - Quiz Answers
- The level ( high, low) of its sound.
- The distance (pitch difference) between two notes.
- Two notes sounded simultaneously.
- Two notes sounded one after the other.
- Interval between two notes more than one octave apart.
- A unison.
- An octave.
- The intervals are :
- C - B = 7th
- B - C = 2nd
- D - G = 4th
- G - D = 5th
- F - A = 3rd
- A - F = 6th
- The interval B - C is the 'upside down version' (inversion) of C - B
Likewise the interval G - D is the inversion of D - G,
and the interval A - F is the inversion of F - A.
The number of any interval and its inversion always add up to 9.
7 + 2 = 9
4 + 5 = 9
3 + 6 = 9
- The compound intervals are :
- C - E = 10th
- C - G = 12nd
- E - C = 13th
- B - E = 11th
- F - E = 14rd
- D - E = 9th
- The number of a compound interval is always 7 more than its related simple interval with the same letter name :
a 2nd becomes a 9th,
a 3rd becomes a 10th,
a 4th becomes an 11th, and so on.
