One Note Solfege Drill
You will hear a tonicization followed by a note. Identify the note you hear. You may switch levels or change between solfege/scale degrees using the drop-down menus.
tips -- high scores -- comments
Identifying one note at a time is the simplest type of melodic dictation. If you're just starting out, at first it may be useful to:
- Play tonic again, and sing a scale.
- Play the note again and sing up the scale until you reach the note you've just heard.
In order to gain speed, however, once you've mastered the system above, it's important to:
- Identify the scale degree/solfege simply by its 'feel' without directly comparing it to tonic in your mind.
- Notice if there are particular scale degrees you have trouble identifying -- such as, say 6 and 4. Sing those notes and notice how they feel in your voice; use this to start to recognize the feel of the more 'difficult' scale degrees.
Start paying attention to the first and last notes of phrases in the music you listen to. See if you can figure out what solfege/scale degree they start and end on. To do this you'll have to first figure out what tonic is (listen to the bass, it usually gives it away) and then you should be able to find the starting and ending solfege pretty quickly.

|I found it really helpful to start by playing a root note on a guitar/piano and singing different intervals over that root note to learn what the different intervals sound like. After doing this for about two weeks 10 minutes/day I mastered level 6. This may be especially helpful for those of us instrumentalists who have never studied vocal techniques before. I think learning to sing music may be the best way to learn to hear music. |

|Hi Brittany812: which level are you finding difficult? If you've never done solfege, it can *seem* difficult at first, but don't worry. Keep at it. Sing from "do" up to the pitch, or from high "do" down to it, sing in your head or out loud - and soon you'll find that you don't have to sing up or down to the pitch, because you know it's "quality." That's when it becomes exciting! It doesn't take long if you sing or HUM from "do" up, or down, to the pitch in question. Give it a shot! |
