December Monthly M-ship: Minor 3rd (m3)

December can be a cold/gray month - a good background for the MINOR 3rd. Think of the tune to "Greensleeves" or "What Child Is This." That said, it happens to be one of my favorite months, filled with warmth, hope, and joy.

Decmber is MINOR 3rd month!


Some reminders:

  1. INTERVALS are the Building Blocks of MUSIC.

  2. HALF-STEPS (or semi-tones) are the Building Blocks of INTERVALS.

  3. The QUALITY of an interval can be either Major, Minor, Perfect, Augmented, or Diminished.

  4. MAJOR or MINOR intervals are 2nd, 3rd, 6th, and 7th.

  5. PERFECT, AUGMENTED, or DIMINISHTED intervals are Unison, 4th, 5th, and 8ve.

  6. A MINOR interval is ½ step smaller than a MAJOR interval (2nd, 3rd, 6th, 7th).

  7. A DIMINISHED interval is ½ step smaller than a PERFECT interval (Unison, 4th, 5th, 8ve).

  8. An AUGMENTED interval is ½ step larger than a PERFECT interval (Unison, 4th, 5th, 8ve).

Have a look & a listen with the freebie interval doc attached!
