"Mathima Solfège" (Greek script: "Μάθημα σολφέζ", English translation: "Solfège Lesson") was the Greek entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1977, performed in Greek by the constellation Pascalis, Marianna, Robert & Bessy, made up of Pascalis Arvanitidis, Marianna Toli, Robert Williams (born in Greece to British parents; of Poll fame) and Bessy Argyraki, all four established solo artists in their own right before entering the Contest. The music was written by Giorgos Hatzinasios and lyrics by Sevi Tiliakou.
The song was performed tenth on the night (following the United Kingdom's Lynsey de Paul & Mike Moran with "Rock Bottom" and preceding Israel's Ilanit with "Ahava Hi Shir Lishnayim"). At the close of voting, it had received 92 points, placing 5th in a field of 18. This would remain Greece's best showing in the Contest until 1992, when Cleopatra also finished 5th with "Olou Tou Kosmou I Elpida".
As the title suggests, the song features a number of musical terms, with the singers expressing their great love of the discipline and their claim that it can serve as a unifying agent in the world.
