Approaching the Exercise:


When training to recognize scale degrees, it is essential that you sing. You may whistle or hum, but it is essential that you think the sound in order to produce it. Singing on solfege is our strongest recommendation.


For this exercise, always be able to sing DO LA DO, and strive to also sing DO RE MI FA SOL. If it is too high for you or if you have trouble singing it accurately, practice singing along with the recordings below. Sing them between every problem.
