This really depends on how you personally progress as you learn intervals.

Learning to recognise intervals is quite a specific skill, but it gradually builds your overall relative pitch ability.

This means that there aren’t hard “dependencies” about what you should learn first or how you should build up your ability.

You can choose to build your skill:

  • “Broadly”: learning all intervals a little bit
  • “Deeply”: really mastering each type of interval before introducing more to your training.

Generally, we would recommend focusing on a small number of intervals and really mastering those (ascending, descending, harmonic, use in real music, relationships with chords etc.) before introducing more. This builds a more robust sense of relative pitch and avoids overwhelm.

The RelativePitch app is intentionally designed to be flexible. You can complete a lesson fully before moving on, or focus on the easiest difficulty of all the lessons in
