comment What's the term for the intervals between notes within a scale that produces a chord
@Monica: A tritone consists of three tones, which would be about two minor thirds (except for comma's). Two major thirds amounts to an augmented fifth or a minor sixth.

comment What to look for when buying a digital piano for a beginner?
For the number of keys, definitely go for 88 keys. This way, you are certain to be able to play the entire classical repertoire, except maybe for a couple of pieces composed for the rare 88+ keyboard.

comment Is it normal, when playing scales on the piano, to occasionally rub neighboring fingers against each other?
I don't have this problem, I don't think you should either.

comment How can I significantly improve my hand independence on piano?
I'm afraid there's no quick fix to this problem. It only comes through hard training. But there are of course certain things you should pay attention to. Also, if you think that just having independence of the hands is enough, think again, you should aim at having independence of every single finger.
