Steps

  1. 1
    Please see our video in this series to gain a greater understanding about solfeggio and its place in music
    .
    Solfeggio notes are do, re, mi, fa, sol, la, ti, and do again. Each word in solfeggio is tied to a particular note in music. It's a musical language: C, D, E, F, G, A, and B. Now, let's practice three different types of solfeggio. We will sing the C major scale for one octave and one note (from C to C): do, re, mi, fa, sol, la, ti, and do.

    We will also sing an arpeggio
    .
    An arpeggio is notes of a chord. Let's take do, mi, sol, do, sol, mi, do. In addition, we will sing from C (step 1 in the scale) to G (step 5 in the scale), or do, re, mi, fa, sol, fa, mi, re, and do.

    Before we begin, please remember to practice support from the diaphragm (which is a foundation of singing) and proper breathing techniques that we have discussed in other tutorials (tutorial 1; tutorial 2; tutorial 3)
    .
    Remember to have the correct posture, sustained airflow, and good muscle support to create a strong foundation for your singing. So, by creating good breath, let's sing the scale from C to C and backwards, sing arpeggio, forward and backwards, and sing from do (scale step 1) to sol (scale step 5). Remember the posture, support, and breathing.
