|Dear Miss Grace Notes: I think I can do well enough on leading, but I can't pitch my selection. What shall I do? --Overwhelmed at the Thought|
Gentle Singer: There is no need to panic. The person who will be pitching the selections during the day is designated in advance by the chairman of the convention. After your song selection is announced, nod to that person and say softly "key please." (All convened should remain silent with no talking or humming, as supplying the appropriate notes is no easy task).
As the opening pitches are given out, raise your hand, and, as you hear the class around you getting their notes, commence.
