Dear Vihana,

Looks like you’ve collected a box full of sa, re, ga ma…with Mo and Mi too ! I see you’ve sung well! Keep up the good work and here are some favourites that Mo and Mi have sent for you! 🌟🌈🔫🐒

Dear Parent,

The seven notes that your child has just learnt are the basis of all (yes, all) music. While the language used here is Indian, the seven notes are universal to any form of music and this set is also known as an octave (in western music) or saptak (in Indian music). What you may have heard as solfege (in western music) or sargam (in Indian music) is nothing more than the use of these notes (literally – sargam = sa re ga ma..)

Please also see our point-wise feedback below (based on needs work/ good/ excellent):

Confidence and Independence – excellent
Understanding of the concept or exercise – good
Singing/ Pitching – good, needs some work
Rhythm – excellent
Overall control (volume, breath etc) – excellent
Pronunciation/ recollection of lyrics – good

Notes: We’re impressed Vihana could recollect the names of the notes on his own, and even sing in an ascending manner. We are practising only the ascending part (ie going from the low SA to the high SA) and not backwards (which she has sung a bit incorrectly, since she is yet to learn that well – which will be done in the upcoming lessons). In the ascending part, keep a note that the last note, ie, high SA, should be sung high. There is no need to re-do the assignment as she has done 80-90% well, but whenever this exercise comes up next, remember to listen and sing with Tootly, rather than on your own. This way the mistake will get corrected automatically.

Look forward to hearing more from Vihana. We see she had a short break, but good to see her back. Please continue with the learning rhythm now 🙂
