Solfege (do-re-mi), a traditional method of naming pitches, tied to "fixed do" is being used for ear-training. Students learn scales, key signatures, basics of harmony, and rhythm. They also learn conducting patterns and play rhythm ensembles. Students in intermediate and advanced classes learn counterpoint. All theory concepts and skills are demonstrated on the piano, and basic piano literacy is also introduced in class.
