Minor 2nds

Intervals can be thought of as musical inches.

An Interval is a measurement of the musical distance between two notes.

A Minor 2nd is the smallest interval in our musical system.

It is the distance from one note to the nearest neighboring note.

Minor 2nds also go by the following names:

  • Half Step
  • Semitone
  • Flat 2 (written “b2”)

A Minor Second is the distance from one note to it’s nearest neighbor.

This may be a white key or a black key.

If you are on a black key, the nearest neighbor will be a white key.
