All the attachments below you can right click and save as to your own computer. Then make a cd or put on mp3 player/ipod. Print out the music and start practicing your part. If you are an old Belles member or I told you what your voice part is, then practice that part. If you are new, then practice what you are comfortable with, but be prepared to change. I have put some of the original recordings there, if you want others, look on itunes or youtube. We will only work on the ones with vocal parts at camp.
