Chapter 8 Review: Interval Inversions A quick review on measuring the interval between two notes: Identify the pitch of the lower note. A 1 2 3 4 Count the number of lines and spaces, including both notes. A Determine if the higher note is in the major key of the lower note. 6th A Major: A

A F Interval Inversion We can invert this interval, either by moving the lower note up one octave or moving the higher note down one octave. Either way, the the new interval has F on the bottom and A on the top. Stop! Don't bother using that way to figure out the new interval! To determine the value of an inverted interval,

1) invert the quality, and
2) take the original number and subtract it from 9 The Inversion of Interval Quality P M m A d P M m A d In other words,

major and minor inverts with each other,
augmented and diminished inverts with each other,

...and perfect is, well, perfect. It inverts with itself. P M A P m d The Inversion of Interval Quality m6 M3 inverts to 9 - = 6 m M 3 Here's a look at all the possibilities. You don't need a copy of this, because it is so easy to do in your head.

You should be able to invert intervals now 'til the cows come home. <END OF PRESENTATION> By going to fullscreen mode, you will be able to see details more clearly.
