The EASY Method to work out Intervals - Piano Music Theory

In this Music Theory lesson, we explore an easy method to understand intervals on the Piano and how to identify them using the Circle of Fifths and Chords (Triads).

Intervals are the building blocks of Melody & Harmony and are essential to learning Scales and Chords. Also, learn extended intervals using seventh chords.
