I was just sitting around going through the lessons in Gregg Simplified, writing outline after outline when my mind started to wander to the Ray Charles album playing in the background. Well I started copying down the lyrics in shorthand and found it to be great fun. The lyrics repeat themselves often so I could get the tougher outlines the second or third time around. What an enjoyable way to practice dictation.

Nice idea for dictation practice. This would be no mean feat to do with Don McLean's Bye Bye Miss American Pie. And it's handy that so many songs come with the written lyrics so that you can check yr dictation easily…
That is what my high schoolshorthand teacher used to do once a week. How many remember "Bridge Over Troubled Waters." lol
has about 5 music dictation rooms ready to use for practice. Enjoy!
