Choir


Yesterday I went to choir. I haven't been going because I've been sick. But obviously if I went yesterday, I wasn't feeling sick. the frustrating thing about choir is the fact that we're learning songs I've never heard before and I can't read music. I know that if the notes on the bar go up, you sing higher. if they go down, you sing lower. that's about it. I thank God I've got a knack for learning songs quickly. I don't know much about music. duh. I just said I couldn't read it. but I'm pretty good at playing stuff by ear. and singing. so I don't even really need the sheet music if I know the melody. that's another thing that I'm grateful for, I'm a soprano, not an alto.


what kind of got me in trouble yesterday (with myself not anybody else) is that we are learning how to compose music as well as sing it. did I mention I can't read music? how can I write it if I can't even read it! Oh well. I guess I'll just muddle through. I'm good at that too.


I don't think I'd even go if it weren't for the fact that I'm not the only one in the class who doesn't know what they are doing.

We're like 2 peas in a pod when it comes to composing!!

I think I have a really basic learning-to-read-sheet-music book that you could borrow sometime if you wanted...and if I can find it, lol. Anyway, I'm jealous that you have a choir to go to! Sounds fun.
