  • Rote Reading Harmony


    BACK to TOP

    • This course will help you develop the ability to perform a harmony part from memory as you listen to each phrase played. You must listen for the target part then sing the phrase you heard.

    • The notation is plotted as you sing each correct pitch. Then you will start at the beginning and sing each phrase again by reading pitch notation.

    • Your speed in matching the target pitches will be measured and points will be earned when you sing each target pitch and rhythm within the allotted time limits.

    • There are videos included about singing in harmony. This will help you learn to pick out your part as you listen to all of the parts played.

    • The pitch pointer will help you learn how it feels to sing correct pitches as they relate to other harmony parts. You will hear the other parts as you sing a selected harmony part.

    • You may choose from songs and exercises in 2-part, 3-part and 4-part harmony. With repetition, you will develop musical skill (muscle memory and tonal memory) as you perform from notation.
