Backing Tracks

SONG PRACTICE

To get to an excellent level at anything – you need to spend 10,000 hours engaged in that endeavor. 10,000 hours divided by 8 hours a day is 1250 days (3.4 years). This is confirmed by many very successful people. Remember this.

When listening to a song, note the BPM, and the key before practicing a song.  Sing along with artist at reduced speed.  Then listening only to artist singing without the background music.  Loop hard to sing parts in order to concentrate your listening analysis and your singing practice.

Sing listening to your voice and artist voice at same time and at normal speed while recording your voice. Then, listen to your voice recording.   Your expression should sound very close to the original artist.

When practicing a set of several songs always sing each song two or three times before moving on to the next song  Sing multiple songs in sequence with little break between songs = a set.

The song of the Day – sing one song ten times, consecutively, one after the other.
