Are you struggling with teaching solfége or looking for a fun, new method for teaching solfége to elementary students? Then look no further! The Pitch Hill Book 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!)

NOTE: This is a hardcopy – a PHYSICAL BOOK that is SHIPPED to your address! If you are interested in the digital version, you can find that HERE!

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).

I'm not understanding what vacation solfege means? Could you explain?

Thanks so much for your interest in Pitch Hill!  The system is designed to teach moveable do.  I start with the pitches F and E based for younger students to visually see it within the 5-line staff without the need for ledger lines.  Pretty quickly within the system we teach kids that Do can move his house around and when he moves, ALL the pitches move!  So when the characters go on "vacation" it is just talking about how we move Do around.
