CONVERSATIONAL SOLFEGE LEVEL 1 & 2 CERTIFICATION COURSE  

Monday, June 27, 2022 – Friday, July 1, 2022, 8:15AM-3:30PM, Shapiro Family Hall Room 010, Hofstra University

Conversational Solfege is a pedagogical method created by Dr. John Feierabend that develops musical literacy. Conversational Solfege is for children who have already developed their tuneful, beatful, and artful skills and are ready to develop a deeper understanding of rhythm and melody. Conversational Solfege develops an understanding of music through the use of rhythm syllables and solfege syllables at a conversational level, and then gradually evolves into traditional notation. Through carefully sequenced activities, Conversational Solfege enables students to joyfully assimilate the skills and content necessary to be musically literate. Patterns, folk songs, poetry, rhymes, and classical music are the primary source materials that are used to develop those musical skills. Ample time will be spent on creating effective lesson plans and opportunities for peer teaching will be made available. A variety of special topics will also be included during each daily class. Participants who successfully complete this course will receive an official certificate of completion from the Feierabend Association for Music Education (FAME).
