Learning Intervals | Easy Ear Training

Learning Intervals

Understanding intervals is crucial for understanding music, especially when learning to play by ear. But for many musicians, learning about intervals is tedious and doesn’t produce results.

Learning Intervals, an audio enhanced eBook, provides an effective, fun and above all, modern way to learn about intervals that’s quick and easy.

But first, why learn about intervals?

  • Intervals are everywhere in music: each and every pair of notes form an interval!
  • Intervals are essential, a core requirement of every musicianship and ear training class.
  • Interval recognition is the key to improving your sense of relative pitch.
  • Relative pitch powers playing by ear, composing and improvising.

Unfortunately most people give up before reaping the considerable rewards of mastering intervals, most often due to boredom, or choosing the wrong programme.

Learning Intervals will bring you fast improvement with a method that is fast, fun, modern, easy, relevant, delivers real results, and doesn’t require a large knowledge of musical theory.

“This book is wonderful because the examples really hit home. They are easy to understand, and then put to practice.

Also the book doesn’t get bogged down in complex music theory so anyone can begin using it right away and not get a headache.

I only wish I’d had this when beginning to learn the piano!”

— Casey Mathews, musician, USA


You’ll be given three methods for mastering intervals, which can be used separately or in tandem for more powerful results; every musician learns in a slightly different way.

“Wow – “Learning Intervals” is great!

Having performed with and produced recordings with musicians of just about every instrument and musical style, I know how effective intervals are when “hearing ahead” and owning the shape of the musical phrases to come.

Intervals are the foundation – the building blocks of the melody and harmony that lives in our head and comes out in our instrument or voice.

The musicians with the big ears are the ones whose instruments become an extension of their creative selves, and the music flows naturally.

“Learning Intervals” has solid content, well-presented, leaves plenty of room for growth, and points to next steps.”
