Greetings, Iowa Choral Directors!  It is summer 2017 and I am working on Opus files. All-State is yet to be released. Check back in August to see if files are ready. Thanks for your interest!!

MIDI Lieder offers MIDI and MP3 files to Iowa music teachers to assist them and their students in learning the audition materials for the Iowa Opus and All-State music festival auditions.  

Each MP3 file includes the piano accompaniment (or vocal reduction) and one specific voice part. Try this sample of  the Tenor 2 part of "Marching To Pretoria" from the 7/8 Bass Clef Honor Choir repertoire.  You will notice that the MP3 files are recorded in stereo, with the voice part (played on a keyboard) on the right side, and the accompaniment on the left. This gives great separation and clarity so the students can hear their part clearly.  Using the balance controls on your stereo, you can practice with just the voice part, just the piano part, or mix them together just right.  You can distribute these files to your students so they can practice on their own. Click here to Place an Order for MP3 files.

Each MIDI file includes the piano accompaniment (or vocal reduction) and all vocal parts.  Using the controls on your midi device(s) you can select which part or parts to play by muting or soloing tracks.  See below for other great tricks you can do with a midi file to make your rehearsals very effective.  Click here to go to the MIDI Sample page. Please explore the links above to find out more about midi, what equipment you need to utilize the midi files, and to place your order.

Shortly after submitting your order, you will receive an email with a webpage link and password where you will be able to easily download your requested files.  The ordering process is not completely automated.  Please give me at least 24 hours to do this.  Click on the “Place an Order” link above.

Dian or paramedian sagittal scan. cheap generic viagra The cisterna magna (cisterna cerebellomedullaris) is an anechoic cerebrospinal fluid collection of varied size caudal to the cerebellum. viagra coupon The echogenic dorsal border of the bony foramen magnum, adjacent to the cisterna magna, may create a shadow across the medulla oblongata. The echogenic clivus can be detected ventral of the medulla oblongata (5). On a sagittal scan, the spinal cord is a hypoechoic tubular structure with an echogenic center, the so-called central echo complex (fig 2), which represents the central canal. At histologic analysis, the central canal corresponds to the border between the myelinated ventral white commissure and the central portion of the anterior median fissure (7). buy viagra canada In healthy newborns, the central canal is overgrown with glial fibrils and is not filled with cerebrospinal fluid. The diameter of the spinal cord varies. It is largest at the cervical and lumbar levels and smallest at the thoracic level (fig 3). The cervical enlargement gives rise to the nerve roots of the cervical plexus; the lumbar enlargement gives rise to the nerve roots of the lumbar plexus. The caudal end of the spinal cord corresponds to the conus medullaris (fig 4), which continues into the filum terminale. viagra no prescription In healthy newborns, the tip of the conus medullaris is located between l1 and l2. The tip should not be positioned below l2-3 (8). The filum terminale is a cordlike echogenic structure (fig 5), which is surrounded by the echogenic roots of the cauda equina. sale of viagra Differentiation of the filum terminale from the nerve roots is sometimes difficult. buy viagra for women uk The spinal cord is surrounded by the anechoic cerebrospinal fluid of the subarachnoid space. where can i buy viagra in las vegas The arachnoid–dura mater complex of the thecal sac corresponds to the echogenic border of the spinal canal dorsal and ventral to the subarachnoid space. An axial scan of the spinal cord shows the hypoechoic, oval or round spinal cord with the echogenic central echo complex within the anechoic subarachnoid space. buy viagra cheap The spinal cord gives rise to the paired dorsal and ventral nerve roots (fig 6). viagra for the brain provigil The spinal cord is fixed by the dentate ligaments, which pass laterally from the spinal cord. The ligaments correspond to transversely oriented, echogenic arachnoid duplications and can be seen in part of the thoracic spinal canal on axial scans. The vertebral bodies of the vertebral column are seen as echogenic structures ventral to the spinal cord. The echogenic vertebral arches produce ventral shadows on axial scans. viagra 5 mg daily cost The paravertebral muscles appear as hypoechoic areas adjacent to the laminae (9) (fig.

Here are some great things about midi files that will help you prepare your students:

  •     Access any point within any song instantly
  •     Mute or Solo any part at any time
  •     Slow the tempo in order to practice intricate rhythms or harmonies
  •     Convert MIDI to SmartMusic files
  •     Make your own custom audio recordings for your students
  •     Rest assured that your students are learning the correct notes and rhythms
  •     Focus your attention where it should be - on the student
