Deep and Wide – Solfege

Deep and Wide – Solfege

Children are taught the aspect of PITCH using a method called Solfege

What is Solfege? 

Solfège describes the musical scale using one-vowel-sound syllables that sing easier than the traditional 8-note scale names: C-D-E-F-G-A-B-C or scale numbers: 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-1.

Why Solfege?

  • Effective Ear Training starts with this system of associating musical pitch to a sound.
    You might have heard this kind of singing even in Indian Classical Sining (alap singing). in other words Solfege is what we call Do,Re,Mi,Fa,So,La,Ti,Do in western music and Sa,Re,Ga,Ma in Indian Music
  • by using this technique the student gains an understanding (in years to come) being able to hear a totally unheard &  new music and be able to tell you what note is being sung in it’s RELATIVE PITCH.
