The ability to determine intervals for hearing is an important quality, which is valuable both in itself and as an integral part of other skills.
For example, a child who can identify any interval by ear can cope with dictations in solfeggio classes much better.
This skill seems to many students a terrible, heavy duty, which strict theoretical teachers torture children. Meanwhile, not everyone can easily and immediately distinguish between a quart and a fifth, and a large sixth from a small one, using a natural apparatus — a rumor.
But the inability to click intervals like nuts does not mean that you are doomed. If it is impossible to use hearing, let the memory help!
How to remember the intervals?
This technique is successfully used by many experienced teachers, whose hopes for the student’s natural talents were not justified, and the performance and effectiveness of the educational process cannot remain as they are.
So, how can you take an interval top without fully trusting your own ears? But how: listen to music! Not any, not everything and your favorite group. There is a certain set of songs that you yourself can add if you learn well this topic.
Such songs start at any particular interval. For example, the notorious "The Forest Raised a Christmas Tree" begins with a great sixth. And if you remember this, then the big sixth will no longer be a mystery to you forever. A famous favorite of music lovers and romantics "Love Story" begins with a small sixth, however, in contrast to the "Yolochka", descending, not ascending. (In the uplink interval, the first sound is lower than the second). Moreover, this whole love melody is a live advertisement for a small sixth!
