A systematic solfége book in two volumes using relative solmisation (unfortunately the first volume is currently out of print). The musical material includes pentatonic music, Kodály exercises, unison and two to five-part extracts from the Renaissance, Baroque and Viennese Classical periods. Planning suggestions are added to each chapter. In the Pupil's Book, 640 musical extracts are provided for improving different musical skills. Each activity is completed by suggested methods of practice.
The author, Ms. Erzsébet Hegyi, was one of the most significant representatives of the Hungarian music pedagogy in the field of musical training according to the Kodály concept and the teaching of solfége and music theory. She was a professor at the Liszt Academy of Music for over fifty years. All of the outstanding Hungarian master teachers who contributed to the worldwide promotion of the Kodaly-based Hungarian music education principles considered themselves her students. Numerous generations of Hungarian and international fine musicians learnt how to find the meaning of music from her.
