"I've done a lot of jingles in my career, and having been a student here at Berklee and understanding how ear training works, I use solfège to learn the jingles. Jingle houses don't really use written music anymore. You just have to go in and listen and learn the song by ear. So over the years I've used my ear training skills to write down whatever I can't memorize right away. I literally write, just over the lyrics to the jingle, the solfège, or the sol-fa. If it's really confusing to me, I'll write the rhythm that goes along with it. Just little personal notesbut ear training has allowed me to do that, so that I can work fast. And I really think that that has been a plus through my career. You get called back when you can work quickly."
