Three-Note Solfege Drill
You will hear a tonicization followed by three notes. Click on the solfege or scale degrees for the three notes you hear in order. You may switch levels or change between solfege/scale degrees using the drop-down menus.
tips -- high scores -- comments
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:
- Play tonic again, and sing a scale.
- Play the notes again, and sing them out loud until your sure you know them.
- 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:
- Try to identify the notes you hear as you're listing, by their feel without directly comparing them to tonic.
- Practice doing this without singing or humming -- just by how it feels 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.
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:
- Hot Cross Buns
- Beginning of the Star Spangled Banner ("Oh say can you see?")
- Frere-Jacques; Mary Had a Little Lamb
- Theme from Star Wars; Theme from Dallas
- Somewhere Over the Rainbow
- 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
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! |

|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. |

|I love this drill though cuz it forces you to internalize how each solfege note relates to each other solfege note (in terms of their respective differences). |
