Why tone theory and ear training (solfège)?
The notation of each melody consists of several symbols. Some determine the temporal values, others the pitches, and even the playing style has its own symbols. The ability to read these symbols helps to understand the theoretical framework of the music and to be able to imagine the music. This means that by looking at the notation, we can recognize the mode, rhythm, and form of a song or piece before we play it.

How to learn Solfège?
For variation in the lesson, the exercises are played both in groups and individually, sometimes accompanied by the oud, sometimes by the drum.
It is not enough to do the vocal and aural exercises, as well as to expand the musical imagination, but we also need practical applications. This is done with traditional songs and melodies that have been heard consciously or unconsciously since childhood. This allows learners to supplement what they have learned theoretically with practical examples.
