What is Solfege??
-In music, we use a Solfege to help us read and learn music. It helps us sing correct pitches and helps us when we want to practice music outside of class.

-It's particularly helpful when learning the sounds of notes that are a long way from each other, and we call those intervals.

-A man named Zoltan Kodaly made the teaching of Solfege famous in the mid 1900s, and it is a very important part of music today

Meet "DO"
- Do = Home
- "Do" is the pitch that the whole key centers on
-- > Key of F, F= Do
Fun with Solfege
Example of Solfege

Meet "MI"
- MI lives two floors (steps) up from DO
- Makes DO sound good
Meet "SO"
-lives in the attic
"SO, MI, and DO" are a perfect group. They help each other and make people happy.
-So, Mi, and Do are everything you need to know on your first day of becoming a singer.

-If you become good friends with So, Mi, and Do, you're already on your way to success!

P.S. Don't worry! In my class I'll teach you exactly how to get along with and maybe even become best friends with Solfege.
- When using Solfege, hand signs are important to learn because they give a physical placement for a vocal pitch.
- Body Scale.
- In other words, it gets your brain thinking about the music and your body showing the music.
