Memorizing Lyrics – 4 Steps

1. Write them by hand while listening to a recording of them.  Do this several times.

2. Read what you wrote.  What is the story of the song? What is the chronology of events in the song? Where’s the poetry? How does it relate to your life?

3. Speak the lyric, slowly with breath support and feeling. Embrace each word.

4. Now…you’re ready to sing it!
