Congrats Dave. Singing is just talking at different pitches. Try this. "I really hate that guy" then "OMG I'm so excited". See how they sound different? Thats singing ;)

Well hey; my scene with Scrooge amounts to the former (with just a touch of "but he scares the crap out of me"), and my little Christmas song boils down to the latter, so I should be all set now. Thanks!

I don't want to start a new thread for this and my motivation for wanting to know is musical-related, so here goes: if a piece of music has a tempo marker at the start giving a certain number of beats per minute, then there are multiple tempo changes along the way (e.g. several poco rits a few measures apart) followed by an a tempo, does that a tempo mean to go back to the original speed indicated in the beginning, or just to undo the most recent change?

Jude would be better for this, but I would assume the first tempo.

I concur (player of orchestral music).

Sounds like a pretty solid consensus. Long story medium: they're putting me in the "backstage chorus" too for the big numbers where my character isn't around, which means I have to learn to sing in parts on top of everything else. I've been entering the score into this musical composition program so I isolate each one and listen to it individually, but computers aren't great with complex instructions that leave the details to the performer's discretion, so I need to specify an exact tempo in BPM anywhere I want a change.

It's Scrooge!, and I'm Bob Cratchit. H gets to play various children as needed (not Tiny Tim).

So someone tell me quick; how do you sing?


Singing is like screaming. You open your mouth, engage your vocal cords, and create tones many people were not naturally inclined to produce from their bodies. If you do it well, people like it. If you don't... well... singing is like screaming...

I'm afraid you're more right than you know! Especially when they try to make me, an amateur with a bass voice, sing an Eb4.

That was amusing. Who's cheering in the background? And opening night is tomorrow?! :shock: Be sure to fracture various tibiae and femurs.

I covered up the window at one point and briefly thought you had LMM in the car with you...
