  1. It’s never been ti, it’s “si” pronounced like “see” but that’s how they call it in english. It’s like the Pianoforte, no one calls it like that, but it’s still ok.

  2. @balarko24 thats what i know too! Ti is Si. i dont know why the names c for DO, D for Re etc exists.. :S do re mi fa sol la si – ντο ρε μι φα σολ λα σι

  3. I have nothing againts using si instead of ti, but problems arise if you call #sol “si” – then you have 2 Sis in the same scale!

  4. Hey, nice video, very helpful 🙂 I’d like to know please if most people use :
    – ‘Do Re Mi Fa Sol La Si Do’ with #Sol = Sol Sharp ?
    – ‘Do Re Mi Fa Sol La Ti Do’ with #Sol = Si ?
    – ‘C D E F G A B C’ ?
    Thanks 🙂

  5. In Italy, we call the names like this: do re mi fa sol la SI
    In Italy you would never hear anyone say “TI” instead of “SI”.
    I figure that english speaking people were forced to say “TI” instead of “SI” to avoid confusion with the spelling-pronounciacion of letter “C” which corresponds to “do”!
    To shift intonation of semitone we simply add the word “DIESIS” or “BEMOLLE” next to the name of the note. DIESIS makes the intonation rise by 1 semitone and BEMOLLE makes it lower by 1 semitone.

  6. If you are curious, look up (in Music History) Guido D’Arezzo & SOLMIZZAZIONE(solmisation?).It explains the rationale of it,as a method for sight-singing.It also bears resemblances with the Kodaly Method.
    N.B. italians of course shift name-pitch accordingly, whereas guido d’arezzo and kodaly always use the same name-succession even if transposed in scale to different actual pitching: the idea is that you recognize the grade-function of each sound and associate the name, not absolute pitch-name.

  7. as long as you know the right notes of every scales no matter what root note either minor or major; you can recall it and if you have a very sensitive ears to hear the intervals… solfege is just another replacement or technique. to memorize intervals but very important so the conclusion we must learn it too. 🙂
