I think you might be talking about solfege syllables? In that case, the syllables would be just like in the sound of music: do, re, mi, fa, sol, la, ti, do. Each syllable is assigned to its corresponding degree of the major scale. For example, in the key of C major, C would be do, D would be re, E would be mi, F would be fa, and so on. There are also modifications for singing minor scales. For example, if you are singing a C minor scale C would be do, D would be re, E flat would be me, F would be fa, and so on.Singing with solfege syllables is a major part of the college theory curriculum and should be included in every musician's learning. Hope this helps!
