Learn to sing Solfege with us!

Most  musicians surely know from their own experience that mastering solfege has many advantages. It develops musical hearing, both in pitch and rhythm, and it makes sight reading and sight singing easier to learn. This booklet is a valuable addition that can be used in music group classes. The booklet starts with an easy introduction to solfege for major scales, and then gradually moves on to more difficult cases in a well planned manner. The second part deals with solfege for minor scales. For the pieces in this booklet, only the melody voice is shown, so they can be used by all instruments. The pieces are placed at a pitch that is easy for children to sing. The booklet has 36 pages, all text is written in English, Norwegian and German.

Syng med oss! (Sing with us!) is the first booklet in this series, written by the same author. It is a valuable addition to group classes in piano education. Pupils should first be able to sing a piece, before attempting to play it. Once you can sing the melody, it is far easier to learn to play the piece, as the rhythm and the melody will be familiar. Group classes in this context do not mean that many pupils play simultaneously. It means that a group of pupils are taught different musical subjects.

This booklet contains lyrics (in Norwegian only) to pieces commonly used for piano teaching at level 1, and can be used when following the Suzuki teaching method, as well as for traditional methods. The lyrics have been written, collected or translated by Kristin Dijkman. She is an accomplished pianist with a thorough education, and with more than 25 years experience as a piano teacher.
