 Audio Accompaniment for Your Practice

Here are accompaniment recordings for your practice.


• Choose the right tempo for you

• Each of the accompaniment tracks has a bit of silence at the start to allow you to get ready.

• Forgive my pitch at the start of the tracks; I was singing through headphones, did not check for reference pitch and went quite sharp. I’ll make sure to check for reference pitch in the future. For now, please accept my apology. — Guy

Practice tips:

• sing on scale degrees (numbers) and also letter names as you move!
•Keep forward momentum • Step on the front of your feet • Practice starting with either foot • Keep your head up so you can look around you!
