Now for this weeks agenda:

Working with a metronome has proven to be very beneficial for many of you.  Karen requested metronome markings for each piece and I think that’s a great idea. These are suggestions.  You may need to go slower if you are learning a piece and faster if you are solid but in general these are good working tempos. All are for a quarter note beat.

Dancin Queen.    104

Aint Misbehavin  88

Hooked on a feeling  108

Lion 104

New Orleans  84

Sway 104-120

Circle 72 Intro.   104 chorus

There are lots of ideas boiling in our pot.  I will be making a video of the moves to Dancin Queen which we hope to have on the website soon.

Thanks to Terry and Kelly and others, we are moving ahead on plans to get our chorus singing all together like other choruses you see on Facebook. 

To do that , I plan to record  the lead to New Orleans and at a future time, all of you will record your part while listening to the lead in your ear and singing against it.  It should be much easier than using a metronome and you will not have to worry about staying on pitch. More to come on this. 

Meanwhile, download the music to It Don’t mean a thing. 

  It is May and I promised we would start work on it this Thursday.  See you then.
