    Is there a sign language for musical intervals, such as a major 5th/minor 6th, etc. Thanks

    ADMIN – Hi Jill,

    I believe there is not but it would be best if you consult with someone whose specialty is adult sign language

    ADMIN – Hi Jackson,

    Most community colleges offer sign language classes that can help you get to the point that you can translate music into signs.
