MUED 5320—CONVERSATIONAL SOLFEGE—2 HOURS
June 24-28, 2013 (8:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.)
Instructor: Dr. John Feierabend
Examines a pedagogical method that develops music literacy. Based on models used to teach conversational foreign languages, this course develops an understanding of music through the use of rhythm and tonal syllables at a “conversational” level that gradually evolves into reading, writing, improvisation, and compositional skills. This is a literature- driven curriculum. The sequencing of musical elements grows out of those tonal and rhythmic elements that exist in folk song literature. Each rhythm or tonal element is explored in patterns, songs, and themes from classical literature. Applications of conversational solfege range from elementary general and choral music courses to collegiate level choral, sight-singing, and ear-training courses.
