Sight Singing

Sight Singing in Solfege

I’m in the process of adding a sight singing unit to my music stu­dio. More work­sheets will be added soon.

I use solfege con­stantly when teach­ing voice stu­dents. It’s such a use­ful tool for ear train­ing and can be equally use­ful in teach­ing stu­dents to read music. These work­sheets have been designed as a resource for teach­ers and may be copied for inci­den­tal, non-commercial use.

sltdgabcThe first step to sight singing is to learn to sing a major scale while using the hand signs. Engag­ing the hands while singing will increases your under­stand­ing and reten­tion. After you have mas­tered the scale, try mix­ing up the pitches. After you have the pitches and hand signs down, move on to the worksheets.

Sight Singing 1.0 in the Key of C. Under­stand­ing the rela­tion­ship between Do and So.

Sight Singing 1.1 in the Key of C. Under­stand­ing the rela­tion­ship between Do, Mi, and So.

Sight Singing 1.2 in the Key of C. More prac­tice under­stand­ing the rela­tion­ship between Do, Mi, So.

Sight Singing 1.3 in the Key of C. More prac­tice under­stand­ing the rela­tion­ship between Do, Mi, So. Solfege to be marked by student.

Sight Singing 1.4 in the Key of C. More prac­tice under­stand­ing the rela­tion­ship between Do, Mi, So. Solfege to be marked as needed by the student.

Sight Singing 1.5 in the Key of D. The solfege scale is move­able. In the Key of C, “do” is on “C.” In the Key of D, “do” is on “D.” Etc. Mark solfege as needed. Sing. If you get stuck, sing the scale again until you find the cor­rect pitch.
