14.4.2. Singing

These are: "Sing intervals"
  1. Select "Sing intervals"
  2. Choose which ones you want to focus on
  3. The exercise will begin, playing the first of the tones you are to sing
  4. You must sing the first and the second tone, or to make it harder, only the second tone (tip: use sol-fa syllables!)
  5. Solfege does not know whether you sang the interval correctly, so you must tell it.
"Tap generated rhythm"
  1. Select "Tap generated rhythm"
  2. Choose a subcategory (they correspond to those in the dictation, but there is no compound metre available). See below.
  3. Click "New"
  4. It will play you a rhythm; listen carefully, and conduct the beat if you can.
  5. as with rhythmic dictation, you will be given an intro
  6. You must repeat the rhythm by click on the "Tap here" button
  7. Best to use the space bar to tap in; here's how.
  8. The "accuracy" may be set too high; I like 0.30
  9. On "Config," change "Number of beats in question" to adjust the difficulty
"Sing chord"
  1. Select "Sing chord"
  2. Choose the type of chords you want to sing
  3. Click "New"
  4. Solfege will automatically play an "A" for you, and you can hear it again by clicking, "440hz"
  5. Sing the chord ascending
  6. Verify that you sang correctly by clicking "Play answer" and hearing whether the pitches are the same.
  7. Click "New" for another question
  8. On the "Config" tab, it allows you to change how far it will transpose the built-in models; best to leave this as it is ['key', -5, 5]
  9. Solfege does not know whether you sang the interval correctly, so you must tell it.
"Sing chord tone"
  1. Select "Sing chord tone"
  2. Select which chordal member you want to practise singing
  3. Click "New"
  4. Solfege will display and play a chord in blocked form, and you must sing the chord member that it tells you to sing.
  5. You can repeat the chord in blocked form ("Repeat") or in arpeggio form ("Repeat arpeggio"). It is much easier to hear a chord played in arpeggio form, so we recommend that you practice both ways.
  6. When you are sure that you correctly sang the chord member, click "Play answer"
  7. For the next question, click "New"
