Old Time Singing and Harmony
Using Carter Family-style harmonies as a jumping off place, we will work with three part (and more!) singing in this beautiful style. Finding harmony
lines that sometimes weave around the melody, sometimes cross or create unisons, students will develop a better ability to hear and find
parts, as well as learn what gives these harmonies their particular old-time country sound, and power. We will introduce some basic music theory,
but all songs are taught by ear, and lyrics are provided. No singing experience necessary, just the desire to sing!
Class size limited to 15 students
All Levels Taught by one of the most sought after instructor. Class size limited to 15 students
