HARMONIZING 101: HOW TO HEAR, CREATE, & SING HARMONIES

Allie Moss & Bess Rogers are accomplished singers, songwriters, recording artists, and members of Ingrid Michaelson's band. They make their living creating and singing beautiful harmonies.

In the workshop video below, watch them take a classic harmony-rich song and break it down, isolating each vocal part for you to hear. They explain the music theory behind the arrangement as well as the blend, tone and subtleties that tie it all together. 

You’ll leave this workshop with...

• the beginning of a foundation you need to sing back-ups with other artists
• record harmonies for your own songs,
• and write solid vocal arrangements that elevate your song.

In this informative, interactive workshop, learn to hear, create, and sing harmonies.

STUDY FURTHER WITH ALLIE & BESS: FRIDAY, 12/18, 12pm PST: HARMONIZING 101 HOLIDAY WORKSHOP!

Build on these concepts as we get to 3-part harmony and arrange and sing a classic holiday song! 

When you join us, you'll...
  • learn more skills for hearing, creating, and arranging parts
  • you'll get a vocal warm-up that will double as an ear-training workout, especially as relates to the arrangement you'll be singing
  • have a chance to sing each part in the privacy of your spot(!) as you are finding your way
  • get the stems (individual recordings with individual parts highlighted or muted) so you can learn each part and practice singing each (melody and harmonies) alongside the other parts on your own 
  • be able to study those recordings on your own time to better understand their choices in blend, phrasing, tonality, and more and compare those choices to ones you make

    In addition...
  • a few singers who volunteer will have the chance to sing their part with the audio and get coaching from Allie and Bess on everything from delivery to blend, tone to phrasing.
  • you'll be singing a festive holiday song in the (virtual) company of fellow creatives, and it will feel great!
  • there will be a short Zoom "after party" in hopes that many of you might network, connect, collaborate and set yourselves up for a creative holiday and a positive 2021
