Video

Please note:
1. Most of these videos have now been posted on YouTube, but the associated midi files and leadsheets are not available there. The videos on youtube are lower in quality
2. My DVD is now absolutely filled, so for some of the vocal with accompaniment videos, I have left the videos on this website, and removed them from my DVD. These videos can be downloaded free of charge from here. However, the backing tracks, pdf transcription files of the accompaniment are still on my DVD. At some future stage, I will place all of the vocal material on a separate DVD.

Tip: If you play the videos from the DVD on Windows Media Player, hitting ‘Ctrl/Shift/S’ will slow the video down enough to read the text and see the notes that are being played. ‘Ctrl/Shift/N’ will return the speed to normal – this won’t work if you ‘stream’ the videos here, but you can also do this if you download them fully before playing.
