How to memorize a song?

  1. Write out the lyrics while listening to the song without looking at the words.
  2. Trust yourself and sing it once without looking at the lyrics (turn the sheet over)
  3. Allow yourself to make some mistakes.
  4. When you are done singing it once, pick up the lyrics and look for the spots where you forgot the words.
  5. Sing it again without looking at the lyrics (turn the sheet over)
  6. Repeat this process until all the words are memorized

You will be surprised how fast the lyrics and the rhythm sink in!

Now find a karaoke track or pick up your favourite instrument and sing along 🙂
