Solfege is like turning music to math. Solfege gives each note a specific word. That way, even if you have never seen the music before, you can read it because you have memorized how to be fluent in music, also known as sight singing.

"The use of a seven-note diatonic musical scale is ancient. originally it was played in descending order. In the eleventh century, the m usic theorist Guido of Arezzo developed a six-note ascending scale that went as follows: ut, re, mi, fa, sol, la, and named the Aretinian syllables after himself."
