If you're new to Interval Theory, we suggest you take most of the content that TC goes through as pure inspiration, but if you're familiar with the intervals already, you want to dive deeper into the techniques and apply them to your own musical works.

No matter in which of the two categories you see yourself, we suggest you follow TC's methodology, pick a musical piece you like and admire, and go through a similar process to extract useful techniques that you can put into your "bag of tricks".

Best always,
