Every passage must therefore be sol-faed first, and only vocalized when the muscles of the larynx, guided by the ear, can execute the necessary tensions correctly.
Technically, it is much the same thing whether the melody is practiced with the names of the notes or with the words, but the former is easier and therefore slow vocalises sol-faed are better for beginners than songs, which distract their attention from the actual tone-production.
