Singing is part of music curricula in all countries and can lead to tremendous emotional, cognitive, physical, and social health benefits, bringing joy to singers and audiences. In addition, learning and practicing Solfege opens the doors to music literacy for most students who do not have the privilege to receive paid private music lessons. Solfy is an interactive software program, artificial intelligence-based, that includes technological innovations in singing synthesis & analysis and machine learning, together with new music learning methods (besides others proposed in the past by Kodaly, Orff, or Dalcroze). Solfy sings Solfege from digital scores, listens, records, appreciates users’ performance, gives feedback, and keeps progress records. It will help teachers, students (and parents) practice singing from the score – especially outside the class, without any additional musical instrument. Learning to sing Solfege is equivalent to learning a new language: in our case, the (intimate) language of (western) music. It is an aid for music teachers and general teachers in approaching this subject locally or remotely and is especially effective as an interactive tool for students to practice Solfege individually at home. Practicing solfeges with Solfy at home, 30+ minutes a week, may add many hours of individual guided works on music to the education system – without requiring a particular budget for that. In addition, it can develop the musical ear, singing from score skills, paving the way to music literacy, and helping reduce verbal aggressiveness in day-to-day communication – that can facilitate reducing physical violence. Finally, Solfy allows self-practice and auto-evaluation, keeping the user's recordings and statistics, simplifying organizing, monitoring, and coordinating music literacy progress worldwide in general and vocational education.
