How to Sight Sing - The Interval Song

Do you have trouble sight singing?
Are you taking an ABRSM practical exam, Grades 4 to 8? Then this is for you.

The secret to sight singing is being able to hear intervals in your head. By listening to the following video enough times that you can memorize the words, and sing along without the music, you will start to automatically associate the alternative lyrics of this well known tune - "Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire", with the intervals that you are singing.
(Original idea and lyrics by David Rakowski and friends with alternative lyrics Dave Swenson).



You will need to listen to the song a few times to memorize the words and thus practice your interval training. When you are travelling, doing the housework, or even in the shower. For convenience, there is a PDF download of the lyrics along with an offline audio available to Patrons of MusicOnline UK HERE.

Special thanks also need to go to Raylin, the amazing vocalist, with whom we collaborated to produce this video
