Today, we are starting off simple. Everyone needs to login to Sight Reading Factory with the free student account code provided below and put in 10 minutes of practice work. 5 minutes on melodies and 5 minutes on rhythm. Of course you are allowed to do more and go ahead and explore the site! Try different keys, time signatures, and levels!
Just for point of reference, we were doing 4/4 time signatures and doing levels 1 & 2 on melodies and rhythms and had been doing C major and G major in melodies.
To find the "cheat sheet" for solfege on any key, just google search Eb Major Solfege (for example) and look under images and you will have plenty of options!
Practice on Sight Reading Factory for 10 minutes (5 minutes melodies, 5 minutes rhythm)
Today you are all going to log some more time on Sight Reading Factory. At this point, I have only received confirmations that about 1/3 of the program has redeemed the student code for SRF online. Please use this free resource while you can!
Also today, we are going to be exposed to the art of Konnakkol, the South Indian rhythmic language art form. I have included a few videos below to introduce you to the art, explain exactly what it is, as well as display some absolute masters!
If you want to know more, feel free to research more into the world of Konnakkol!
