A basic introduction to the use of Sol-fa with the help of the piano. The book contains over 300 exercises, and teaches sight-singing, sight-reading, transposition, improvisation, and a knowledge of the structure and colour of keys (chords and scales). It can be introduced once students have reached the beginning of Dogs and Birds Book 2, or can be used with those students on other piano methods. This is a perfect tool for self-study. No previous knowledge of Sol-fa is required.
I often use the Sol-fa names and hand signs in my teaching, and I have only done so aurally before. It is very useful to have this little book with me now as I can use it to aid understanding of pitching. melody and transposition as well as simple ear training ixed with sight-reading. This is a very versitile little book and I use it for all abilities, from beginner to post grade 8!
Incredibly useful and convenient way of connecting the ear to the keyboard, via the voice! Also great for strengthening understanding of rhythm notation. I use it with all my students.
I am not a great singer and have tried many books in the past but have found this one to be the most effective, noticing my aural perception improve dramatically. The exercises are well constructed making it both fun and effective for all ages. I would recommend this book to anyone, no matter what age are playing ability.
