The Adventures of Sophie Solfege series was born out my need to make the abstract concept of placing solfege patterns on the music staff a little more concrete for younger students. My schools use moveable do, so I teach my students the relationships between the notes when they are placed on the music staff. This allows the students to move the solfege patterns around, but keep their relationships to one another intact. Creating a story that mimics the relationships between notes makes this experience memorable for students.
*This lesson is part 1 of the Sophie Solfege series. It is meant to introduce students to the lines and spaces on the music staff. Students are introduced to Sophie Solfege (So) and her tree house ladder (music staff).
Meet Mia, Lana, Dorian, & Reymond in subsequent lessons (coming soon!).
