Are You Sleeping?
This song reinforces the solfege hand signs. Very soon we’ll sing in a round, letting us hear multiple layers of music. Hearing music in our head and being able to stay on the part we are singing is a great skill for musicians to learn.
Who knew BINGO had such rich music concepts to learn from? When we sing it, we feel the quiet internal beats and learn to anticipate when to clap.
Chords in Pieces - audiation (hear in your head)
As we sang “Chords in Pieces” we left out some of the chords and audiated them in our heads instead of singing them aloud. Again, much of the learning in 1st year is subconscious and unseen. The musical development that is happening to your little musician right now won't be seen by the naked eye, but will be harvested down the road!
We mixed up the order of the bugs and with no verbal cues we sang and clapped the bug rhythms. Your amazing kiddos were able to do “Can’t Bug Me” perfectly. Wow, they are learning so quickly!
It is easy to underestimate the significance of solfege. It helps us label something abstract like notes, uses whole body involvement, helps us understand scales and key signatures, aids in learning about intervals, helps us sight read/sing music, and so much more!
