    @virtualman111 in Greek it’s “si”. Don’t know if “ti” is the right one, but i see it a lot !

  2. Martín Roque says:

    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.

    @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

    OMG. A helpful and concise video from expert village….. what ever next? Thank you for this great explanation 🙂

  5. Timothy Williams says:

    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!

    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 🙂

    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.

  8. solfa ita says:

    … so “SI” always corresponds to a pitch of B.
    And SOL always corresponds to a pitch of G.

  9. solfa ita says:

    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.

  10. James Paul says:

    OK. Sing a chromatic scale using Solfege-now you know why we use ti instead of si
    Do Di Re Ri Mi Fa Fi Sol Si La Li Ti DO

  13. John Snow says:

    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. 🙂

    Thanks so much! needed this for my Sight Singing class! (: you should do an example of sighting through a song or two! 

  15. 1:25 that high note though <3 ugh lol love it

  16. gi chavez says:

    how do you find the starting pitch when sight reading? because it’s not always do

  17. Juanito Pablo says:

    Nagagatulong din ang do re mi
    Magandang aralin sa amin to kung nakikinig Kami sa guro

  18. Aayush Gupta says:

    great lesson, so can you sing any note without playing it on an instrument? that is perfect pitch right?
