Sight Singing

I have been a choral singer for 10 years and have used solfeggio (do, re, mi, fa, sol, la, ti, do) for that whole time - with wonderful results. My training began as a middle schooler, where I perfected the solfeggio technique. From there, I sang in choirs at both Santa Monica College and at UCLA, where sight-singing was easy because of my sofegge background.

And I want to help students to do that also! I begin by teaching solfeggio, so that students can begin to hear the relationships between notes. From there, we move to labeling songs with solfeggio syllables and then singing them using solfeggio. At that point, students can begin to hear the relationships between the notes without actively using solfeggio and can begin to sight-sing like a pro.
