Harmony Practice

Use the Transcribe looping software to repeat a section of a song that you want to create harmonies on

Pro Tips:

  • Sing harmony lines using *3rds* to create pretty melodic/harmonic lines
  • Focus on projecting the note you’re singing to keep your pitch accurate and stable
  • Slow down the lines you’re trying to create harmonies for to really ensure you’ve got the correct pitch

“No Longer Slaves” by I Am They

It’s okay not to sing the high notes in the Bridge section

  • Sing what is comfortable for you in your current range
  • Sing whatever makes your vocal chords happy :^)
