Folk Songs

Here are some recordings of folk songs that you can use to learn (and sing just for fun!) and to figure out the Solfa and the rhythm.

Remember, to figure out the Solfa, you are listening for intervals.

To figure out the rhythm, you are listening for how many notes happen during one beat. The metronome is set to 60 bpm on each song (unless noted otherwise).


Ainsi Font, Font, Font 

Baa, Baa, Black Sheep
