"Solfege Sounds" is another in our "sounds" series which helps students learn to sing parts with confidence. In this case, it is also a good reinforcement of the use of solfege to teach melodies.
There are three distinct vocal melodies. They are sung one at a time at first, then combined for a really neat effect. There are also three distinct rhythm parts that correspond to the vocal parts. On the recording, we used guiro, tambourine, and cowbell, but you can use any non-pitched percussion instruments you like. You could also invent simple Orff ostinatos based on the key of C and following the progressions indicated on the piano/vocal. These could be played on any C instrument.
