GUEST,Captainswing Learning and remembering the words.. (56* d) RE: Learning and remembering the words.. 05 Jan 19


This is my method:
1. Use a paper copy(pc) - sing the song over and over and over and over and over again with the pc
2. Try singing the song without the pc - when you make a mistake refer to the pc then sing the over and over and over and over and over again without the pc but referring when you make a mistake
3. When doing something else e.g. driving, cooking, cleaning etc, try to sing the song (perhaps in your head). When you get to a part you can't remember try to drag it out of your memory, it will be there somewhere! This really is the most useful part.
4. Repeat 1, 2 and 3 until you are reasonably confident you know the song
5 Practise the song repeatedly without the pc - refer to memory when you make mistakes, refer to pc only as a very last resort
6 Continue to go over the song when you are doing something else - this really is the most useful part.
7 Destroy the pc - get rid of it - do not keep files - do not refer to it again - any changes to the song from now on will become your own interpretation
8 Continue to go over the song when you are doing something else - this really is the most useful part.
