P. 40

The targets for the Red level of Voice for Life are listed on pages 40–43. As you work through this book, you will learn to do all the things below. This section is a record of your progress, so write your name here.
Each time you achieve a target, your choir trainer will sign the box and record the date. There is no time limit to complete the targets. It is more important to learn everything thoroughly than to rush to finish the book. Your choir trainer will make sure that you make steady progress so that when you finish the book you are prepared for the next level.
When all the boxes are signed, you have successfully completed Red level. Your choir trainer will sign the declaration on the inside back cover of this book, where you can also find out what happens next.
