Audio Recording

VERY IMPORTANT - YOU NEED TWO DEVICES (TWO PHONES OR A PHONE AND A LAPTOP OR TABLET TO RECORD YOUR AUDIO)

These are the instructions to send your recording to us:

1. Once you have learned and practiced your music a few times, you should have the music ready in front of you on the computer or a tablet. You can also print it out if you have a printer at home.

2. Get a pair of headphones and plug them into one of the phones or laptop/tablet. Next, you find the backing track for the voice part at the bottom of the page. This is the track that you will sing along to.

3. Set up the second device (phone or tablet) to record your performance. It helps if the room has no echo! A room with carpets and curtains helps with this.

4. Using your headphones to listen to the backing track on the first device, press play on the backing track and sing along while recording your audio on the second device (a phone or tablet).

5. When you are happy with your recording, locate the recording on the second device and rename it with your own name similar to the following examples: IYTC-AUDIO-LILY LACEY
