If you have read above definition of a music interval (the distance between two notes) you’ll notice that intervals can be considered as the elemental building blocks of chords and scales. In t his way, you will notice that music intervals are very important in determining if a chord or scale sounds like a particular music style: jazz, blues, classical ,Arabic, Spanish, Indian, or really any other style.

So how does this work?

In chords: The distance between the notes used in a chord, that is… the music Intervals that will be combined to create a particular chord… will define the chord’s Sound.

In scales: Similarly, the distance used between each note of a scale, that is… the music Intervals that will be combined to create a particular scale…will also define the scale’s Sound. OK, so these definitions are indeed interesting and we can see that intervals are really Important to understand chords and scales.
