Interval, Schminterval!

New addition to the teaching materials page – Interval, Schminterval! is a little workbook I put together a few years back to help high school and college students with interval naming and recognition.  Be warned, it contains numerous examples of my quirky sense of humor, there’s no answer key and it’s never been proofread by a third party.

Still, it was fun to write, and maybe someone out there will find it useful.  Enjoy!

  • Hi Jason,
    I love your interval workbook! Thanks so much for sharing that. I particularly like the order in which you introduce each interval and that you bring in the idea of inversion right away. The quirky sense of humor helps too! I just discovered your blog and look forward to looking around more!

    Thank you! This will be a great help to my high school students. I know they’ll appreciate the humor.

    Hi Jason,
    Thank you for writing and sharing your thoughts and ideas about piano! I find it very, very helpful because I am a beginning piano teacher and can use all the help I can get. I majored in English, got my teaching degree and taught for a year, then started my family of, now, 3 little girls. I started teaching piano 3 years ago and have about 12 students. I feel very natural teaching, but I think I have a lot more to learn myself and so I appreciate your ideas. Keep sharing! And if you have any more words of wisdom, please send them my way. Thanks!

    This is a wonderful booklet. I would love to see one for augmented and diminished intervals. Do you happen to have one? Thank you.

    Hi Jason, I just stumbled across your website and ended up reading every blog from start to finish. Thank you so much for putting this together. I’m a new teacher as well and I love all of the ideas! Looking forward to reading more.
