Day 262: Reflections

Posted by annagrace under Days 201-300

The other day I mentioned that I got some new music from McKays. Along with the Broadway show tunes book that I used Day By Day from in the last post, I also got the music from Disney’s Mulan! Anybody that knows me knows I love Disney movies… particularly one’s with good music! So When I saw Mulan sheet music for $9, I had to buy it!

I did this song on my iPad using the GarageBand app! The piano tool on this app is a little different than on my computer in that there is no way to just enter in the music notes and have it play automatically, so I had to break it into multiple parts and actually play the notes and record it! I think it makes it much more authentic, but I am terrible at piano, so it was a bit of a struggle for me and it took a long, long time! Then I just recorded myself singing over top of that!


I’m not super happy with my voice on this track, but I enjoyed testing my music brain and ability to read sheet music on piano! It’s nice to actually play the parts some instead of having it all computerized!

I hope to post a couple more things tonight, but I just took a Percocet (I pulled one of my stitches that’s under my skin at work last week, so I had to take more time off of work and am back on pain meds…. c’est la vie), so we’ll see if I can stay awake long enough to post more!
