Hey everyone!

I was wondering if someone could clear something up for me: what is the difference between scale degrees and intervals, and if so, what? Thanks!

Scale degrees are the order of notes from the root. An interval is the number of scale degrees spanned inclusively, and the quality of an interval depends on the number of semitones contained.

Scale degrees are the notes of a scale described by their relation to the tonic.

So in a C major scale (C-D-E-F-G-A-B) C is the first scale degree, D is the second scale degree, etc. They also have certain names, solfege symbols, and a lot of other information related to them.

An interval is the distance between two notes, which you usually learn at first by counting the number of semitones in between them.

intervals and scale degrees are two different ways of constucting chords.
using scale dagrees: a c maj chord uses the 1 3 5 degrees of the c moajor scale (ceg)
using intervals: major 3rd + minor 3rd = major chord
(c to e is a major third; e to g is a minor third)

read the crusades they will help a ton!
