Help for learning your part

Music files for rehearsals

These files are for you to learn your notes. They are at a suitable speed for learning which might not be the tempo we finally perform them at. If you want music at the right speed to sing along to, try finding a recording or listening to the karaoke files that are also here on the website. These are mainly chorus numbers but a lot of them include principal and solo parts. If  you need anything added or a part played more clearly or in isolation please ask Linda.

If you find the files too quiet when played in your browser, you can download them and play them as loud as you please in your favourite music app. On most screens you can download by simply right-clicking or long pressing on a title.
