Do mi so do do so mi do
Every truly cultured music student knows
You must learn your scales and your arpeggios
Bring the music ringing from your chest
And not your nose
While you sing your scales and your arpeggios

If you're faithful to your daily practicing
You will find your progress is encouraging
Do mi so mi do me so mi fa la so it goes
When you do your scales and your arpeggios

Do mi so do...
(She notices Berlioz is playing the notes fast)

Marie and Duchess:
Do mi so do do so mi do (Repeat)
Though at first it seems as though it doesn't show
Like a tree ability will bloom and grow

If you're smart you'll learn by heart what every artist knows
You must sing your scales
And your arpeggios
