Mary M. Redondo replied to Rommel Yadao's discussion 'Suggested Key Signature for Female Worship Leaders'
"I agree with this! I usually stick to a range of no lower than A below middle C and D2 above middle C. This range seems to work well for everyone. I check out the song, find the highest and lowest notes and adjust it accordingly."

Mary M. Redondo replied to Brenda Cameron's discussion 'Stepping out with keyboard sounds' in the group Keyboard Players

Hi I’m Vickie. I just started playing keyboard. I’ve played piano for years. I play chords for praise band. I was wondering if anybody else had a difficult time hearing themselves. I use earbuds so I can hear myself. I was wondering if anyone else can hear me. My husband is not musical so he can’t hear me. My son and daughter said they don’t really hear me. I can hear it before we begin when nobody else is playing. So I don’t know if it just blends in with the sounds and is good or doesn’t really matter.
