Are you struggling with teaching solfége or looking for a fun, new method for teaching solfége to elementary students? Then look no further! Pitch Hill is for you!
In Pitch Hill, each solfège note is a character with his or her own story. For example, Do is a Boxer! He LOVES to box! He wears special head gear and boxing gloves to protect him and when we sing the note that is Do, we show our hands like boxing gloves. Do is very strong and will catch Re if she falls off the roof! (You will have to purchase to hear her story!)
The stories provide a way to remember the corresponding hand sign as well as help explain the relationship between individual pitches. Though the system is enhanced by technologies available in many schools (iPads, IWB, etc.) it can also be taught using a simple chalkboard. Pitch Hill was created to overcome the challenge of teaching solfege notes by engaging visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learning modalities as well as captivating students with wonderful story telling.
Pitch Hill is appropriate for teaching things such as scales, pentatic scales, melody, pitch, singing, and harmony. It is appropriate for people following kodaly, orff, or any other method of music education! (It makes a great alternative to those who are familiar with the music street stories for teaching solfege (solfeggio, solfa, etc).
As new materials created specifically for Pitch Hill: Teaching Solfege (volume 1) are created, they will be added to the bundle! Currently this includes the following products:
Some of the amazing resources you are getting include:
As the Pitch Hill series grows, so will this bundle AND the price! Get it while you can! :) Future releases will included additional assessments, background tracks for the character songs, and more!
Note: I counted the Flipcharts and PowerPoints as one set in the price since they are extremely similar products but on different platforms.
Note: Pitch Hill does NOT teach sharps, flats, or naturals. It is intended to be a resource to introduce students to singing solfege and using the Curwen hand signs. The characters are not animated; I show the actual levels of the hand signs through teacher-led instruction.
