SONG SHEETS

 

Click on the links below to download pdf files. These can be read using Adobe Acrobat reader. If you do not have Adobe Acrobat reader click here

 

The audio clip for each song should be available on the right. To listen to a clip, click on the song title, but if this doesn't work for you, then follow Howard's instructions.

 

Some browsers let you see the song sheet and listen to the audio clip simultaneously, but most don’t. If this is the case for you, then:

 

- Open the song pdf, and hover the mouse over it until you get a menu bar.

- Click on the ‘save’ icon, and save it where you can find it easily. (I’d go for Desktop.) Shrink the page.

- Open the saved song on Desktop.

- Go back to SONG SHEETS and choose the appropriate mp3 clip; shrink the Media player as soon as it begins to play, and you should now see the music and words.

 

HINT: If a pdf is reluctant to open, just press F5.
