Borrowed from French solfège.

PronunciationEdit

  • IPA(key): /sɒlˈfeɪʒ/, /sɒlˈfɛʒ/

NounEdit

solfège (uncountable)

  1. (music) A method of sight singing that uses the syllables do (originally ut), re, mi, fa, sol (or so), la, and si (or ti) to represent the seven principal pitches of the scale, most commonly the major scale. The fixed-do system uses do for C, and the moveable-do system uses do for whatever key the melody uses (thus B is do if the piece is in the key of B). The relative natural minor of a scale may be represented by beginning at la.
