12 Standards in Singer's Keys -- Recorded for Low and High Voice

Each song is recorded in 2 keys---one for lower voices and one for higher voices---ensuring all singers, men and women, can find the best key for their voice! Selected songs are presented in two tempos (ballad and medium tempo) on separate tracks, adding excitement and variety to these time honored classics. Melody, lyrics, and chord changes are clearly presented in the book and the pianist on the CD provides singer-friendly intros and voice leading, making it easier to find the melody.
