Tonic Sol-fa

Here are some books by John Curwen, that I think are very much worth reading for anyone who wants to learn about music! They are in the public domain, and available through the links:

If you just want a short introduction to what Tonic Sol-fa is, read the Tonic Sol-fa Primer. If you want a compact course in music through the Tonic Sol-fa system, maybe start with How to Read Music and Understand it. But of course, I highly recommend all of these books!

If you would like to know more about my interpretation of Curwen’s ideas, you can read more here.

If you are working with any of this material, or want to work with it, and would like some personal feedback, a session to sing in harmony with me, or need some help in analysing and understanding your repertoire, please contact me for a lesson!
