Greg's Tips

When you're indentifying three notes at a time, you have to think about memorizing the fragments of melody you hear. If you're just starting out, at first it may be useful to try:

  1. Play tonic again, and sing a scale.
  2. Play the notes again, and sing them out loud until your sure you know them.
  3. Then figure out the first note by singing up the scale from tonic until you reach it. Repeat this for the rest of the notes.

In order to gain speed, however, once you've mastered the system above, it's important to:

  1. Try to identify the notes you hear as you're listing, by their feel without directly comparing them to tonic.
  2. Practice doing this without singing or humming -- just by how it feels in your mind!
  3. 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.

Next Steps

As you get better at completing each level, try figuring out the solfege for some songs you probably already know. Here's a song for each level:

  1. Hot Cross Buns
  2. Beginning of the Star Spangled Banner ("Oh say can you see?")
  3. Frere-Jacques; Mary Had a Little Lamb
  4. Theme from Star Wars; Theme from Dallas
  5. Somewhere Over the Rainbow
  6. Rock-a-bye Baby

Do any of you guys find errors - as when you *know* the tone is a "sol" but the program says it's wrong? Until today, I'd get perfect scores on these six levels... and I'm fairly practiced. Just wondering if you guys have similar experiences. /Kojo

VERY WELL EAR TRAINING SYSTEM, THE SOLFEGE LABEL AND CADENCE IS GOOD!
IF YOU CAN ADD:
1)MINOR CADENCE FOR MINOR SCALE 3-NOTES/MELODY DICTATION
2)ACCIDENTAL NOTES

THEN IT WILL BE A VERY COMPLETE SYSTEM FOR SOLFEGE EAR TRAINING

There's a glitch where if you try to replay level 6, sometimes the "play tonic" and "replay notes" buttons disappear. Also, occasionally, the notes will just stop playing mid-exercise (that might only be on macs though). I love this site by the way, thanks for making it!

I have a problem!!! In melody ear training I can't play the notes when clicking "replay notes"

Actually, I take that cadence thing back, If you ever need a key-refresher, you can just sing up the scale from the tonic. Better practice anyways.
