The ‘Do Re Me Fa So La Ti Do’ Drill

by Lindsey
(usa)

Lindsey from USA shares with us her vocal exercise:

Ok so basically it goes like this –
Do Do Re Do Do Re Mi Re Do Do Re Mi Fa Mi Re Do Do Re Mi Fa So Fa Mi Re Do Do Re Mi Fa So La So Fa Mi Re Do Do Re Mi Fa So La Ti La So Fa Mi Re Do Do Re Mi Fa So La Ti Do Do Ti La So Fa Mi Re Do.

In solfege numbers, it looks like this -
1 1 2
1 1 2 3 2
1 1 2 3 4 3 2
1 1 2 3 4 5 4 3 2
1 1 2 3 4 5 6 5 4 3 2
1 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 6 5 4 3 2
1 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 1′ 7 6 5 4 3 2 1

Then you do that same pattern again except with the “do re mi fa so la ti do” you would start out going right to left and doing that pattern..it takes a while to get it down.

Everybody understand? ;-p

Try it out, and if there are any questions or if you think you can help to make this simpler, send in your suggestions now!!

We do this in choir every day and after we repeat it once we break off into parts, starting at different times. Its really fun.

A shimmering major triad variation!
by: Chuck


If your Do is given two beats and you skip over Ti,

and you run it as a round of as many people as you can get to do it, rules 1) One on a part, 2) Each singer starts on the next Do. So:

Do — Do Re Do — Do Re Mi Re Do etc.

….. Do – Do Re Do — Do Re Mi etc.

-for as many participants as possible, but remember: SKIP the Ti ! Then you get a shimmering major triad with each voice on one note of the triad and otherwise in passing tones. Good luck,

Chuck

Great exercise
by: Tia


Great morning exercise! Nice to warm up the vocal chords and also for teaching your tongue to move quickly through consonants and vowels.

Fun Exercise…
by: Anonymous


I’ve tried this with many students in my vocal classes and its a very fun exercise that students really love doing. It’s a great way to help students stay in tune as they go up and down the major scale. Once the exercise begins to become easier amongst your group, you can also get them to clap on (3 & 7 – mi & ti) It gives them another challenge to look forward to!
