Questions/Vocentro

Why do you use Vocentro to name the notes?

The codes currently used are arbitrary codes and should never be confused with music itself. In the first place, there are two kinds of musical codes - (a) one while speaking, the names of the notes (DO, RE, MI ... ) and (b) one for reading and interpreting it (the notes placed on the staff according to their pitch, more or less "high" or "low"). These two forms of codes are "absolute", determining the pitch of each note without any indication of its function, of the role which it plays in the music. Vocentro (or scale-degree numbers), on the contrary, indicate the role which each note (its position as degree of the scale, which will be the same in all keys), a powerful tool to transpose into any key. Vocentro will be useful both for speaking of the notes (we will say "the note Ta", "the note Vo" ...) anad for writing them down, in the little squares, on paper. Young children will be able to "wrtie music" very early in these classes. Needless to add that, once a melody is written in Vocentro, it is child's play to transcribe it into conventional notation. Who can ask for anything more?
