One Note Solfege Drill
You will hear a tonicization followed by a note. Identify the note you hear. You may switch levels or change between solfege/scale degrees using the drop-down menus.
tips -- high scores -- comments
Identifying one note at a time is the simplest type of melodic dictation. If you're just starting out, at first it may be useful to:
- Play tonic again, and sing a scale.
- Play the note again and sing up the scale until you reach the note you've just heard.
In order to gain speed, however, once you've mastered the system above, it's important to:
- Identify the scale degree/solfege simply by its 'feel' without directly comparing it to tonic 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.
Start paying attention to the first and last notes of phrases in the music you listen to. See if you can figure out what solfege/scale degree they start and end on. To do this you'll have to first figure out what tonic is (listen to the bass, it usually gives it away) and then you should be able to find the starting and ending solfege pretty quickly.

|Hi, what is a tonicization? Before the note to be identified is play, there seems to be three chords being played to me. Of what use are they to me in identifying subsequent notes? Thanks! |
