Helping your students understand and sing in harmony can be a snap! The key is to think about readiness. This workshop will share ways to prepare your students to audiate harmony and engage in practical activities for developing students’ harmonic skills in a sequential way. We will also explore extensions to improvisation and composition, as well as harmonic audiation in a variety of tonalities.
