Please do not use any you tube videos labelled "Karafun". They always have very faint lead vocals.

It's recommended that you memorize your songs 🙂

How to memorize a song ...FAST!

  1. Write out the lyrics while listening to the song without looking at the words.
  2. Trust yourself and sing it once without looking at the lyrics (turn the sheet over)
  3. Allow yourself to make some mistakes.
  4. When you are done singing it once, pick up the lyrics and look for the spots where you forgot the words.
  5. Sing it again without looking at the lyrics (turn the sheet over)
  6. Repeat this process until all the words are memorized

You will be surprised how fast the lyrics and the rhythm sink in!

Now find a karaoke track or pick up your favourite instrument and sing along 🙂

Solo, Duo or Trio?

Now, if you want, you can connect with fellow students and perform your songs as a duo or trio!

  • Each song performed as a duo or trio counts as one of your two songs whether you sing backups or lead
  • If you want, you may book a private session as a group to practice. If you purchase(d) a package of private one-on-one sessions then you may use one of those sessions toward your group session.
  • You may schedule private one-on-one singing lessons to work on your songs and mic technique
