2) Select Staff Name Intervals - just below Staff Diatonic having to do with the seven note scale Intervals.

4) Select the By Ear button.

 

5) Click OK.

 

6) On the menu bar on top click: Practice Settings - Intervals or press F12.

 

 

 

7) Select P4 and P5 and un-select everything else. You may want to study these intervals ascending, descending,  harmonic an interval or chord where all notes sound simultaneously, or any combination.

 

 

 

8) Select Standard Buttons to give your answers.

 

9) Click OK. You now have a custom drill consisting of Perfect Fourths and Fifths by ear.
