Music Intervals Chart: Quickly Name the Intervals Between Notes

    🤹‍♂️ Here's a visual music intervals chart where you can quickly see the intervals between two notes for simple intervals. Just select a starting note and see all the intervals in chromatic order.

    Plus this visual helper makes it easy to see the inverted intervals at the same time. For example, the interval between C and C♯ is a minor 2nd, and that interval inverted, between C♯ and C, is a major 7th.

    Notice how an interval and its inversion always add up to 9. For example, major 7th inverts to minor 2nd (7 + 2 = 9).

    Notice also how major intervals invert to minor intervals and vice versa. Perfect intervals stay perfect when inverted. Finally, diminished intervals invert to augmented intervals and vice versa.
