Sing the Music Alphabet Three Different Ways

For reasons you will find out about in Crescendo Music System’s Primer Level of Musical Rudiments, it is an essential skill for musicians to be able to say the music alphabet in these three ways:

  1. Forwards – A B C D E F G
  2. Backwards – G F E D C B A
  3. By Skips – A C E G B D F

A fun way to practice is by singing the seven letters in the three different orders set to the melody of the ABC Song.

Here are demonstrations of all three ways plus one extra fun way sung by a monster.
