Memorization Technique (my comments on memorizing tunes)

I play through the tune until I can sing it or I'll get a recording like Hunter does. Once I know what the tune should sound like and I can sing through the melody I can put the sheet music away and work on the tune without it. I only refer to the sheet music after that for fine tuning of timing and embellishments. If I start to rush a certain part, then I'll read it off the sheet music as I play - that seems to help me get the timing down better.
