How do you find movable do? i need to solfege songs in different keys and i need to know how!

Add sharps and flats to make it closest to another key scale with dynamic constrast

To find movable do and solfege songs in different keys, you can follow these steps:

1. Start by understanding the concept of movable do solfege. In movable do, the tonic (first degree) of the major scale is always "do," regardless of the actual pitch or key. The other degrees of the major scale are assigned solfege syllables, such as "re," "mi," "fa," "sol," "la," and "ti." This system allows you to sing or identify any note in relation to the tonic.

2. Identify the key of the song you want to solfege. Let's say the song is in the key of C major.

3. Start by assigning "do" to the tonic of the key. In this case, "do" would be C.

4. Determine the distance between the notes of the major scale in the key of C major (C, D, E, F, G, A, B). This distance is called the interval.

5. Apply the interval pattern to the solfege syllables. For example, the interval between C and D is a whole step (or whole tone), so "do" would become "re." The interval between D and E is also a whole step, so "re" becomes "mi." Continue this pattern for the remaining intervals.

6. Now you can solfege the song in the key of C major using movable do. Each note would be sung with the corresponding solfege syllable, based on its position within the major scale.

To solfege songs in different keys, simply repeat this process by starting with the new key's tonic as "do" and adjusting the solfege syllables accordingly based on the interval pattern of the major scale in that key. Remember, "do" always represents the tonic of the key, regardless of its actual pitch.

To add sharps and flats to make it closest to another key and create dynamic contrast, you can use accidentals. Accidentals are symbols placed before a note to modify its pitch. A sharp (#) raises the pitch of a note by a half step, while a flat (b) lowers the pitch by a half step.

For example, if you want to solfege a song in the key of A major but it has a B flat (Bb) in it, you can replace "ti" with "te" to accommodate the Bb. The rest of the solfege syllables would remain the same as in the A major scale.

Remember, while solfege provides a useful framework for understanding and singing music, it's important to develop your musical ear and practice identifying notes by their solfege syllables in different keys.
