Example text

An hour later, you would probably still be at it. Generic vocabulary saves time, helps people understand quickly and makes things easier. INTERVALS REVISITED Intervals are simply comparisons of distance (denoted by interval type and number of notes) between one note and another. In the same way that knowing the difference in distance between a trip from Cape Town to Johannesburg and a trip from Pretoria to Johannesburg is helpful in relating the three cities, intervals can help us relate notes to each other.

We studied the basic elements of music, namely, TIME, PITCH and a little HARMONY — which, according to my introduction is a sufficient foundation for APEL. † Time and Note Values — on the subject of time, we looked at notes (or rests) and their values. We also looked at how these things are written on the staff. † Scales and Keys — we then looked at pitch and understood how the notes are named, how they form scales and keys. † Intervals and Chords — finally, we looked at intervals and how they become chords.

Each time I lectured, I told my students of the importance of making a psychological adjustment, they always assumed that I was being too sentimental over APEL, or just a little mellow dramatic. A LONG HARD WALK APEL is a long hard walk. For most normal people that is (like you and me), success will not come in a few weeks. But, the results will definitely be noticeable within the first few days. As I said somewhere else in this book, I have seen students who baffled me by making dramatic improvements in fourteen days.
