Subject: RE: Help: 'Sol Fa' Music Notation
Bernard and Ian, you took the words right out of my mouth. I have the text, somewhere, of that Latin chant that gave us the do-re-mi scale, as well as a drawing of the finger signals the monks used to indicate tones.

And yes, we use the Kodaly method here. It is taught at St, Mary's College in Moraga, California, and is effective with young children.

Hereis a website that describes the Kodaly hand signals(my first try at a blue clicky).
