If you have been learning solfege but struggling to connect the syllables of each note with the score when singing or transcribing, I have good news for you. There is a great way for you to internalise the name of each note on the score quickly and easily. In the process of learning how to sight-sing or transcribe music accurately, it is normal to divide your attention between getting the correct pitch and remembering the right syllable that corresponds with the note, to connect it with the written staff.
Often musicians will:. Internalising the syllables so that they become instinctive helps greatly in eliminating this extra distraction, allowing you to concentrate on rhythm, good tone, or overall accuracy.
Once you have internalised the syllables you will be able to:. Fortunately, there is an established way to gain this instinct for the syllables. It was developed by the great Italian pedagogue Ettore Pozzoli. Ettore Pozzoli was born in Seregno, in the north of Italy, in Some of his books quickly gained critical acclaim and started to be distributed by Casa Ricordi , in Milan, making his methods and techniques widely available throughout the world.
Throughout the 20th Century, his music education methods became established practice for conservatoires influenced in the Italian way. We normally think of solfeggio as something you sing. Each pitch has a syllable, so you sing the syllable on the pitch. Spoken solfeggio, as its name suggests, works differently. Spoken solfeggio acts as a first step before the sung equivalent.
It consists of first focusing your entire energy on memorising and internalising the correct syllables and associating them with the different pitch heights on the staff. All you have to do is read the name of the correct syllable from a note in a score as if you were reading a book, in neutral tone, respecting the right rhythm.
Once this is done, you repeat the exercise singing the correct pitches along with their respective note names. Simply follow along using the instructions! Your goal in phase one is to start to teach your brain the connection between the position and relationships of notes on the staff with the solfeggio syllables. Then in phase two you introduce the sung pitches as well.
To carry out the exercise all you need is the score with syllables labelled, but to help you get started you will also find spoken and piano versions of each exercise for your reference. Exercise 1 — Spoken. Exercise 1 — Piano. Exercise 1 — Sung. Exercise 2 — Spoken. Exercise 2 — Piano. Exercise 3 — Spoken. Exercise 3 — Piano. Now we will do the same focusing in the bass clef.
Then, proceed to sing, until you can do it three more times, non-stop, from beginning to end. Exercise 4 — Spoken. Exercise 4 — Piano. Exercise 4 — Sung. Exercise 5 — Spoken. Exercise 5 — Piano. Exercise 6 — Spoken. Exercise 6 — Piano. Now it is required that you practice with a metronome. Apart from that, the procedure will be the same: three times in phase one, spoken solfeggio, and three times in phase two, sung solfeggio.
The recommended speed is BPM beats per minute , but you are recommended to adjust the speed depending on how comfortable it feels. On the other hand, if you feel that you would like a challenge, speed up to BPM. The speed should be kept consistent for all the repetitions in each phase. Exercise 7 — Spoken. Exercise 7 — Piano. Exercise 8 — Spoken. Exercise 8 — Piano. Exercise 8 — Sung.
For instance, the following is a transposition of Exercise 8 into D Major. The overall note height would be different on the staff but the syllables would remain the same. Exercise 9 — Spoken. Exercise 9 — Piano. You have learned the two-phase process for training using spoken solfeggio exercises and started to use the set of simple exercises provided to begin connecting the sight of the score with the solfeggio syllables. We have also talked about how developing this instinct for solfa will help you to transcribe, improvise, and sight-sing easily in future.
