Papa's Got A Head Like a Ping Pong Ball
Everytime I Get the Opportunity
'Siyahamba' all parts together. This is just to show how all parts fit together. Most of you will only have learned the main part - soprano
Below are the parts for the A section of 'Siyahamba'.
Everyone is starting on the 'soprano' part to begin with.
Soprano - for high females and very high males. EVERYONE STARTS WITH THIS PART
Alto - for normal females and high males (most year 7 males will be alto)
Tenor (one octave below - lower) - for high MEN and very low WOMEN. Most year 7s will not be able to sing this low! Please note that this recording is an octave lower, so you have to sing one octave higher.
Lyrics and music
Most students will only use the printed lyrics - second side/page 2 of the attached sheet. This has the words only. Green sections are the main part that everyone has to learn, the 'soprano' part. If you can read music then feel free to use the actual notation - first side.
