sight singing "Cindy"

In today's lesson you will be sight singing the tune "Cindy".  I have notated it in 4/4 time to make the rhythms easier to read, but it is actually sung in two.  This is called cut time.  Rather than 4 beats per measure you have 2 and the half note gets the beat.  This may sound difficult, but it is really happens quite naturally when the song is sung up to tempo.
