Directions for Recording:
Things you’ll need
1. You will need a laptop/computer and a cellphone (both iPhone and android work
2. Earbuds or headphones
3. Feel free to dress-up in your favorite baseball apparel!! Show your team spirit! MLB, Little League, college teams, etc. are all accepted as long as it's baseball related! Be creative and have some fun!
Here is the "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" vocal score with the vocal line. If certain notes are too high or low in your range feel free to omit them or change octaves.
NOTE: There are additional directions on the bottom of the score. Please read them!
This is the piano track that you'll sing along to.
How to Record:
Plug your headphones into computer/laptop. You will listen to the song through the headphones/earbuds and sing along to the piano accompaniment out loud.
Record yourself using your cell phone. VIDEO MUST BE HORIZONTAL NOT VERTICAL.
- Choose a quiet place, with a nice background with enough light - only your singing should be recorded.
- Position your video camera at eye level or slightly higher and angle the camera down a bit (to give a nice perspective).
In the recording I have sent you, you’ll hear me count out four beats followed by 4 claps then a pause before the music starts with a quick 2 measure piano intro leading into the "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" melody. In your video recording, clap along with my claps. By doing so, you’ll create distinct lines in the audio wave form that the audio engineer will use to line-up the tracks.
This is a lively recording so be prepared for the quick tempo! Breath support! Haha!
