Piano and Music Theory Part 07

Essentially intervals are measurements between notes/keys. So for example the distance between the C key and the E key (ascending) is known as a Major third. Similarly the distance between the C key and the G key (again ascending) is known as a perfect 5th! If you play all of these together you get a C Major triad chord …

During your piano practice try alternating between playing different Major and minor scales and you will instinctively find 'modulations' that sound great to your ears.…
