About Our Album Format

 

All our albums include professionally recorded guide vocals.  Each song appears on the album twice: once with music and vocals, and once with accompaniment tracks alone.  This allows the performer to learn a song by singing along with the vocals and music, then to practice their technique accompanied only by the background tracks

 

This album is recorded in CD, not CD+G format.  There are no on-screen lyrics or lyric booklet provided.
