Dear Vishwanath,

Looks like you’ve collected a box full of sa, re, ga ma…with Mo and Mi too ! I see you’ve used your voice well, but but do also see our notes below to get better at the melody part 🙂
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 – good
Understanding of the concept or exercise – good
Singing/ Pitching – good, needs some work
Rhythm – excellent
Overall control (volume, breath etc) – good
Pronunciation/ recollection of lyrics – good

Notes: We’re happy Vishwanath could recollect the names of the notes on his own, and is trying to sing in an ascending manner. We’d love for him to continue working on pitch accuracy and control.You will notice that every video has 2 recording parts – one where the child hears phrase by phrase and sings AFTER it and one where the child can sing on their own. Use both – but don’t skip the first one, especially in the first 3-4 assignments.

Listening and singing back with the teacher/ Tootly not only helps the kids with the right pitch and lyrics (without worrying to recreate from memory) but also helps develop the habit of hearing a sound and being able to reproduce it correctly.

Look forward to hearing more from Vishwanath. The first teacher meet is due after completion of Day 5 – please check if you have scheduled one, and if not – do schedule one from your dashboard. We’d love to meet you. Please ignore if this was completed already.
