What are we going to sing in 2022 
Suggest a song for the choir to sing. Email Choir Committee

Since it's been such a long time since we sang together, we going to start by gently going through a couple of our old songs. They are all ones which you can easily seeing even if you don't know the harmony or anything-just a singalong basically. I want to make things as easy as possible for the beginners who are joining us. These songs are just to "get us going". We'll probably be doing quite a few completely new ones as the year progresses. Feel free to make suggestions and write to me via the choir email address (just replied to any of the choir emails you have received)

Here is our temp startup list.

All I have to do is dream.
Bad Moon rising.
Way over yonder
You've got a friend

Section rehearsal advice   (usually held first Wednesday of each month)
All the people singing a particular part gather to practice their parts, hosted by a choir member)

Music Shops - Nearby
(HINT: If buying a music stand, call first to hear what they have in stock.
There are more expensive heavy duty ones and cheaper lighter
(and a bit less stable) ‘student’ ones.
Most of the choir have found that the cheaper ones work out fine)

ALDI often sell music stands. Keep an eye out!

World Of Music - East Brighton (on Brighton Rd)

Melbourne Music Centre (near Ormond Station
   (March 2017: Libby got one here for $20!)

Pat's Music (Oakleigh South)

"I want to learn a little bit more about reading music?"
There are quite a few good online websites, that can teach you the basics about reading sheet music. One that I think is very good and clear is

Another good way of learning how to read sheet music, is to learn a little bit of basic piano
using an 'teach yourself' adult beginners course.  (Its a PDF - I have also posted it on the choir Dropbox page)

Just reading through this book would be a good idea anyway, even if you don't have a piano.
If you do have a piano, even a daggy little electric one of the kids left behind, you can have a go at learning some of the simple tunes in that book.
For a singer, when you have that "difficult bit" that you just can't get,
nothing beats being able to go to a piano and actually play it,
even if it's just clumsy "one finger style". Slow is best anyway!
There are also lots of free piano apps for iPad/iPhone as well.
