Weekly Interval #25: Chromatic Exercise

Posted on: January 2nd, 2011 by dville

This week on the Weekly Interval we’ll practice the twelve ascending intervals in order. We’ll start on the root of the C Major Scale and ascend the scale while singing the Chromatic Solfege Syllables. Remember to start each two-note group with the root tone C. Notice the friendly and even sounding Major Scale Intervals as opposed to the Blue Note sound of the Chromatic Intervals.

Key of C Major Ascending Chromatic Interval Exercise:

1: Do-Di (#1/b2)
2: Do-Re Major Scale Interval
3: Do-Ri (#2/b3)
4: Do-Mi Major Scale Interval
5: Do-Fa Major Scale Interval
6: Do-Fi (#4/b5)
7: Do-Sol Major Scale Interval
8: Do-Si (#5/b6)
9: Do-La Major Scale Interval
10: Do-Li (#6/b7)
11: Do-Ti Major Scale Interval
12: Do-Do Major Scale Interval

  1. Libby Wheeler says:

    OK. Did this one. Eventually understood the symbols–I’m going up a half tone to the sharps or down a half tone to the flats, right? i.e. I’m playing the 2nd interval #, or the 3rd interval b? Now I’ll name the notes as I play. Is that a good idea? Or should I just be singing the solfage syllables? Libby
