Vocal Harmony Ensemble
- A capella
- School of Music class
*THIS IS AN ONLINE CLASS*
Do you love singing? Have you ever listened to the tight harmonies of a great bluegrass band or a classic country duet and thought, “how do they do that?!” We’ll show you! Join Emily and Chris for an exploration of two- and three-part harmony singing! Students who join this class should feel comfortable singing a melody; knowledge of music theory and harmony singing experience are helpful but not necessary. We will focus on building vocal strength and independence, pitch accuracy, blending with others, and the music theory behind finding your own harmonies by ear. While this class is remote and because we will not be able to sing together all at once, we will focus on these learning points through demonstration and workshopping. Students will be given the opportunity to bring in their own songs, both covers and/or originals, and will receive feedback on vocal harmonic construction.
This class will be held from 6:30-7:45pm on Tuesdays: July 7, 14, 21, 28, Aug. 4, 11
Please note: Limited to 12 students (16 yrs of age or older); Pre-sales are highly encouraged! Sales end 15 minutes before the class begins. 3 students are required for this class to meet. If a class is cancelled due to low enrollment, you will be notified and receive a full refund.
