In this lesson we'll start with the major scale because it forms the foundation of most Western music. We'll focus on recognition of scale degrees from the root which is called functional pitch recognition. Sometimes this is done by solfege: do-re-mi-fa-so-la-ti. Playing the notes simultaneously vs. Pedal point. Find a good range for your voice. Sing along with the notes you play!
