Hi,
I feel I can sing the tones correctly when I follow the sequence 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 or the opposite sequence,
but I totally get lost when I sing each tone individually or practice a random combination (Ex: 1 5 6).

I hope one day I will be able to sing a new song by reading the notes. Any suggestion how to practice?

Thanks!

Solfeggio

  • The tones of a scale can be sung using solfeggio.
  • 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 scale degrees of a major scale are also Do, Re, Mi, Fa, Sol, La, Si.
