Mary Had a Little Lamb-
Solfege learning made easy

Mary Had a Little Lamb-Solfege

This printable in only available to our members right now.

I am so excited to share this printable with you today. This printable is designed to be printed on both sides of the paper, preferably on cardstock.  On the first side is the "Mary Had a Little Lamb" Solfege version.  If you know the melody to this classic song (and I hope you do!), all you need to do is substitute the solfege bubbles in place of the words.  Mi-Re-Do-Re-Mi-Mi-Mi, and so on.  This is great practice for little ones, and for parents too!  If you've never learned to sing in solfege, this practice is great for ear training, learning the distance between intervals and so on.

If you are familiar with "The Sound of Music", you will recall that the children learn to sing in solfege.  One little girl tells Maria that the words don't make any sense.  So what do you do?  You substitute words.  That's what we're going to do now.  To reward their efforts singing in solfege, you turn the page over to sing the original words and let your child look at the picture.

My name is Tamsyn and I love music. I got my bachelor’s degree in vocal performance from USU. I spent many years teaching private piano lessons until I had children of my own. I have attended several children workshops on how to teach children music. I really like the Kodaly method, but have adapted a lot of different techniques for my own children.
