Conversational Solfege@ Beginning Music Literacy

Conversational Solfege is a pedagogical method that develops musical literacy. Based on models used to teach conversational foreign languages, Conversational Solfege develops an understanding of music through the use of rhythm syllables and solfege syllables at a conversational level, then gradually evolves into traditional notation. Through carefully sequenced activities, Conversational Solfege enables students to joyfully assimilate the skills and content necessary to be musically literate. Through various techniques, Conversational Solfege allows the acquisition of musical reading and writing, dictation, improvisation, and composition in an intuitive manner. This course is applicable to general music, choral, and instrumental teachers.
