This music geek just composed the most epic Do Re Me (with bonus Homer Simpson)

A study in Do Re Me, for 2016.

Time for a bit of solfège. Or sol-fa, or solfeggio (or we can just call it Do Re Me). Anyway. Solfège is a music education method used to teach pitch and sight singing, assigning a syllable to the degrees of a tonal scale.

And it was made immortal by Rodgers and Hammerstein in this wonderful scene:

Ah yes, we all know that delight, don't we?

Enter Canadian music educator and (we assume) fantastic music geek, John Hooper. In his score John takes it all up a few theory grades. He adds a melodic form with a bonus Asian food and Simpsons reference, inexplicably absent from the Rodgers and Hammerstein original.
