Circle of 5th Ascending Descending
This is an exercise to find the interval of perfect 5th with single notes (not multiple notes at the same time) going up and down. Being able to find the interval of perfect 5th from one to the next quickly is a very useful and helpful technique. Also, this will give you a picture of the circle of the 5th diagram. When one says, "Circle of 5th", accurately it means "Circle of perfect 5th. It can't be diminished 5th or augmented 5th. Perfect 5th has 7 half steps between the 2 notes.
For this exercise, you can just use one finger and poke these notes. And it's going to be helpful to see the interval visually on the keys. Eventually, it's more important to memorize than looking at this sheet. This exercise sheet begins with a note C. But you should be able to start it eventually from any key. Also, practice slowly first and increase the tempo gradually.
It's boring to listen to the recording. But it's also important to be able to hear how perfect 5th sounds like. So, please refer to the recording.
