INSTRUCTIONS

HOW TO SING

THE SONG

The backing track has 2 forms

Sing both forms or pick one.

Form 1: Lead Melody

Do it in your own style,

Relaxed and with pleasure.

Use the English lyrics

that I prevent in the video.

If the key does not fit,

do octaving here and there or

vary the lead melody.

Form 2: Improvisation

Do a scat solo, let it all out.

Think as an instrument

and release some bold lines.

Don't overthink,

all levels are welcome.

Not there now?

Just add some beautiful long notes that you sing with good breath control.
