The CHALLENGE! The SOLUTION!

" I don't play piano and have
trouble learning music quickly and accurately."


"Recordings of my songs are hard to find!"

"I donít care what anybody says...it HELPS to hear a credible performance of the song Iím preparing."

   Performance Samples!!

Many singers like to hear a performance of the song they are preparing before they begin. Much like a traveler consulting a map, the result is the same: It can show you where you are and where you need to go.

singers appear on opera stages and in recital halls all over the globe. Each performance is a product of a lifetime of study and experience from two accomplished artists (singer and accompanist). What better way to learn than to hear a performance done by a singer who has "made it."





The CHALLENGE! The SOLUTION!
"In the past, when I've gotten my
song accompaniments recorded
myself, the pianists sometimes
aren't familiar with the song I'm
learning. I often wind up with
something I can't use." 

"I can't afford to work with an
accompanist as often as I 'd like."

"
Having easy-to-access accompaniments available allows me to practice anytime...even at 2am!"

"I need to run my music over and over to feel totally confident."

"IPA is great, but sometimes it
helps me to just hear someone
pronounce the words for me. It
helps to hear the 'flow' of the
language." 

"I've spent hours in the library
digging through the dictionary to
translate a song only to discover
when I'm finished that I still don't
understand what the words
mean!"
