Repeat this lesson often and when one writes the pitches of a major/minor scale on the board. 
Once a month to master the concept within a year, k-5/6th.

Solfege Scale
  • "If we use numbers instead of the syllables, what would Do be called?"
  • Put the correct number UNDER each syllable as the class calls them out.

Solfege Scale
Number Scale

  • "If we use letters instead of the numbers, what would One (1) be called?"
  • Put the correct letter UNDER each number as the class calls them out.

Letter Scale
