Zoom in on February 27th a duet harmony singing session with Caleb Klauder and Reeb Willms! Price is pay what you can with a strongly suggested donation of $25 and a minimum $5.
DUET HARMONY SINGING WITH CALEB KLAUDER AND REEB WILLMS:
All levels welcome.
Come sing a duet with us. The basic idea of harmonizing is to sing along with a lead or melody in a complimentary way that is harmonic. And in duets, there is a lot of freedom unlike singing in a trio where you need to stay in your lane! Most anyone can learn to hear and hopefully do this, given some dedicated ear training. In this workshop, we will start with the foundations of harmony singing, breaking it down into a few simple ideas that can be put into practice right away. We work on finding a tonic or root note, then build a chord, find an octave, and practice this in different keys. We will learn a song, and practice these basic concepts, building confidence by first placing the melody firmly in our minds, and then branching out to sing a harmony part with attention to lyrical and melodic phrasing. Bring a song journal if you like.

- plays a few of their favorite recordings, talks about why they love them
- plays a few tunes with a friend or 3
- teaches a tune or song or 3
- a question and answer zoom hangout session
