Leelo loves his music. He gets it. He's always humming a tune, or slapping out a good beat. He seems to have perfect pitch. When his fine motor skills get a bit better, we plan to have him learn an instrument. For now, though, it's a treat to be around him when he breaks out in one of his spontaneous songs (right now his favorite ditty is "Sweet Potatoes" from Music Together, many thanks to Gwendomama for stocking us up).
Izzy's got music skills, too. Even though she doesn't grok the music like her brother does, she is a decent piano player and is not tone deaf. But she is also not what I would call a gifted singer, and I honestly have no idea how her and Violet's singing act qualified them for their school talent show. Perhaps they have good stage presence?
Further complicating matters is the act: A Hannah Montana (don't even start with me) song, True Friend, that has no commercial karaoke version. Gaaaah. Now they've been told they cannot be in the show without the karaoke version.
Does anyone know any good, cheap (or free) Mac software for converting regular songs to karaoke tunes? Violet's family is not available to investigate just now. HALP!
