Students love games. I play a game called Forbidden Pattern with my students that helps them practice solfege while having a great time playing. I use it as the “hook” for my Sight Singing program. They love playing it. It gives you a chance to have a little fun with them while teaching them how to use the solfege signs.

Here is a video of me teaching the game to my beginning 6th graders:

Just copy and paste.

There are several other Sight Singing videos on that site that I’ve been uploading this year as I’ve taught Sight Singing to my students. Hopefully, you will get some more ideas from them. I am uploading videos of sight singing tips and actual teaching almost daily because I want to share this particular journey of teaching this year’s beginners how to sight sing.

Hope that helps!
