  • Singing "Lerchengesang" by Felix Mendelssohn. Learn this piece on your own.  This piece is in German. If you are comfortable with the German pronunciation, you may sing it in German;
    if you are not comfortable with the German, I'm happy to hear it on "dah." Either way is fine.  The music can be found here. A good recording of the piece can be found here.
