|STUDY METHOD (always have your printouts/pages in front of you)
1. In your first homework session, Listen to the assigned audio files, each phrase separately, at least 15 times each. Let it sink in! Best practice is to listen a couple more times in a second sitting before trying to sing along.
2. Sing along with the audio files many times until it is identical, smooth and confident. If there are glitches, use the slider to “rewind” and review a word or two at a time until identical. You’ll know you’re ready for step 3 when the audio recording feels too slow or is ‘holding you back’.
3. Sing the whole assignment without the audio file (as you will in your next lesson).
Use this approach every week, and knock my socks off with how well you know it!
AND, 4. every week, you MUST review at least once, everything learned to date, and FIX any glitches.
