Singing Harmony By Ear (6 Weeks)

with Jane Lewis

Have you ever wanted to sing harmony on the fly? In this group, you'll learn how to listen for harmonies and how to find parts on your own. We'll work through exercises and songs, and give you a road map to help you find your harmonic way. The group is designed for beginners: being able to sing the scale (do-re-mi-fa-sol-la-ti-do) is your only prerequisite.

Co-ed group
Wednesday evenings, 7-8:30 pm, starting March 29, 2017

Cost: $150
Location: Toronto Street, Guelph
Registration: Visit the All Together Now registration page

with Jane Lewis and Katherine Wheatley

Experience the joy of making music together! This group will meet for eight weeks and sing a selection of songs (a mix of folk, traditional & modern), learning melodies and harmony parts.

Thursday evenings, 7-9 pm, starting April 6, 2017 (Kitchener)
