How can you accelerate the speed, accuracy, and quality of learning songs for performance situations?

On this blog I share my 'learning adventures' as I continue to improve my performance as a singer.

I share web resources I find helpful, and reflect on my experience using various technologies and ideas.

Child, if I were king' (Enfant, si j'etais roi) by Liszt

Peter Mellalieu sings 'Child, if I were king' (Enfant, si j'etais roi) by Liszt.

Recorded handheld on my new Canon EOS 600D camera, with Canon EFS 18 - 200 mm Image stabilizer lens. Using built in microphone.

I am impressed that the sound quality recorded by the camera's inbuilt mono microphone has done an impressive job coping with the dynamics of the singing and piano. The camera was located a bit too close to the piano, I suspect. i.e. distance from camera to singer: 4 m. Distance from camera to piano 3 m. (approx +/- 0.5 m)

Next concert, I will attempt to record using the external mike input, using my Zoom H4n digital recorder.

Postproduction: iMovie, using original 1080p video from the camera.

Note: this was recorded at an end-of-year concert for a music class. This was the first time the pianist and singer had performed the piece together.
