Traveling, coaching, teaching, singing, performing and making friends. That’s Lynda’s definition of a perfect life, and that’s what she’s having right now. She’s turned her years of early musicianship (including church choirs, community musicals, playing in bands and performing), together with her barbershop, into an interesting, exciting livelihood. Formerly a lawyer, Lynda managed to cut the ties to corporate America and now does music for a living.
You may recognize her as the lead for the 2008 Sweet Adeline International Champion Quartet, Four Bettys. She’s also a member of Melodeers (having won 5 of the 7 gold medals with the chorus). She’s a Certified Music Judge, a member of the International Faculty, and a Master Director. In addition to her Sweet Adeline singing, she also performs with The Caroling Party, a group active in the Chicagoland area in the Holiday season.
She lives with her cat, Freddie, in the “Apartment of Endless Possibility” in Elmhurst, IL. Her mission: To help singers find joy in their music and grow to reach their goals – while traveling, seeing the world and making new friends, of course.
Buying learning tracks is not the same as buying an arrangement. You must also purchase the arrangement. If you click on the name of the arranger of the song, you’ll be linked to the place where arrangements can be bought or inquiries made.
The learning tracks I make may not be identical to the arrangement you purchased. Sometimes groups edit the chart for their own purposes before they send it to me, and sometimes arrangers update their charts. If I know the chart is different, I will indicate that (see “I’ll Never Say Never Again”, arr. Tom Gentry, changes by Mo Field).
When you buy my learning tracks, you are constructively agreeing that you will pay licensing fees for the copies of the downloads that you make. Go to www. Harryfox.com to learn about and pay these fees. This is how the copyright holder gets paid. Current mechanical licensing fees for a song that’s 5 minutes or less are $.0910 per copy, for a minimum of 25 copies. That’s $2.28. Being legal is inexpensive. The lawyer in me urges you to make your downloaded tracks legal.
