What is the "movable Do system"?
I believe you remember you learned about the difference between major and minor in music in past lessons.
And I know some of you are now facing a kind of confusion at the rehearsals when you read the music and sing in Do Re Mi.
So, I will explain some of the things about what is movable Do in a couple of e-learning lessons!
Today, please take a look at this movie to start it off.
I hope you understood what is "movable Do system" with this, you can see how you sing the beginning of "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" with movable Do system like "Do Do So So La La So, Fa Fa Mi Mi Re Re Do" in the various keys.
Fixed Do system
As you saw in this movie, there is another system for reading music called "fixed Do", and I was growing up with this (I can handle both as my job, however, I prefer fixed Do system). The difference of movable and fixed Do systems would be just like different coding languages.
I think some of the TICC members feel familiar to fixed Do if you learning the piano or other kind of musical instruments. It depends, however, I could say movable Do system is preferred in US, UK, Germany, and other countries, especially in the education of Kodaly method. Fixed Do system is preferred in South and West European district like France, Italy, Spain, Belgium, etc.
