Categories: ,

Solfa from Scratch is a six lesson course with Helen Russell combining pre-recorded classes with live support. Helen will get your heart singing and your brain pumping while you work your way through the course. The lessons are all available from the start so you can work through as fast or as slowly as you like.

You will learn how to

  • sing in tune
  • sing from music notation without needing an instrument to help
  • co-ordinate your mind and body to explore beat and rhythm
  • develop your inner hearing in order to succeed in a choir or ensemble
  • understand the building blocks of melody and harmony

Side effects include

  • a life-long obsession with solfa
  • having lots of fun

This class is suitable for

  • total beginners
  • musicians who are new to solfa and Kodály musicianship
  • teachers who would like more confidence teaching music

The class follows the British Kodály Academy musicianship syllabus. Over the course of the 6 lessons we will cover Level 1.

Course included for Doremi Members

What do people say about Helen’s classes?
Helen, your classes are a joy. I come away with the very best of ear worms, things to practice, things to consolidate and things to learn. Love it.
“Fun and inspiring! Quite apart from the brilliant musical presentation, Helen is such a whizz with the graphics!”
May I thank you and applaud you for your great teaching. I am particularly grateful for your sensitivity with me given my tentative hold on some of the material. I really enjoyed it all.”
