Musical Ear Advice: More help with Intervals-Chirn Park Jazz ,Gold Coast @Taste Restaurant

Great night with Malcolm Capewell on the Baritone Sax playing at Taste Restaurant on The Gold Coast .

Today I have a member question:

“I can’t hear the difference between whole-steps and half-steps, major 3rds and minor 3rds etc.

I’ve been practicing with interval-trainer apps but without much success.

Do you have any tips?”

Here’s a new exercise you can use to improve your interval recognition:

Practice Tip:

Go to the piano and play a C.

Sing the note, and then test your answer by playing a Db.

Then do it again – sing up a major 3rd from Db.

Sing the note, and then test your answer by playing an F.

Then do it again – sing down a whole-step from F.

Sing the note, and then test your answer by playing an Eb.

And keep doing this f...

Music as a Language: Victor Wooten at TEDxGabriolaIsland

It’s true I was born into a band,exceedingly literally, I mean that literally. When I was born, my four older brothers who were already playing music, knew that they needed a bass player( Laughter) to round out the family strip. I was born into that character. As I’m older I’m looking back right now , now that I’m called a teacher. When I look back on that, and how I was taught, I realized that I wasn’t really schooled. Which is why I say that music is a language; because if you think about your first language, for me, and perhaps most of us here might be English, so I’m just going to go with English. If you think about how you learned it, you recognise you weren’t taught it. Public simply spoke to you...
