#beginquote# The easiest way to think of it is this: As the notes are placed higher on the staff, the pitch of the note goes up. As they are placed lower on the staff, the pitch goes down. I am sure you probably have figured this out by this point. In music, there exists a distance between every two notes that we musicians call an interval. The farther apart the two notes are on a staff, the larger the interval. If you have a note that jumps from the bottom line of a staff to above the top line, that will be a larger interval than one in which the two notes have a distance of one line or space between them. My best advice to you is to use your ear. I preach to my students that the most important thing in being a musician is listening. Listen to the piano, as in a choir it often times will play the part you are singing or at least something similar. Listen to the other voices in your section and practice matching their pitch. And listen closely to get a feel for how it feels and sounds to sing different intervals. Your ear is your best friend in this endeavor. Good luck and let me know if I can be of any more assistance! #endquote#
