sight singing in Bb major

Today's lesson gives you sight singing practice in Bb major.  The melody is pretty easy.  It uses a pentatonic scale (drm sl) with a high "do".  The rhythms are a bit harder using eighth and sixteenth note patterns as well as syncopation.  You can go back to lesson 118 for a review of the rhythms if you need to.  Go to lesson 79 for an introduction to reading syncopated rhythms.  Pause the video and try to figure it out on your own before watching.  This is actually lesson 121 rather than 120 as it says on the video.
