View Full Version : solfege: the 'chromatic' syllables

First of all I wanna say thanks Guni for the Solfege-series articles... It's great and it's helped me a lot.

I have a question about Solfege part 3: Do you use the different syllables for both the ascending and descending motions when practising a scale or melody? (using the ascending syllables when moving up to a note, and the descending ones when 'targeting' a lower note.) It seems more practical to me to just use either system, and not bother about correct 'grammar' when applying the solfege... are there any hidden long-term disadvantages to learning it this way instead of being 'correct'..?
