Lesson 5.6 - Intervals Greater than an Octave


All the intervals you have studied up until now have been an octave or less. In this lesson suitable for Grade 5 ABRSM and Grade 4 Trinity college, you will learn how to name intervals of more than an octave. This is actually very easy as an octave plus a perfect 5th becomes a "compound perfect fifth".

Some musicians will describe this as a perfect 12th because 8+5=13 and then you take away one to make 12 because you don't count the octave note twice. You could also count up 12 from the bottom note, for example, The 12th note above C will be a G, but this counting up notes method is rather slow and tedious.

Here are a few examples
