Singing Outside the Shower Level II: Harmonies for the Hot Tub w/ Melanie Ida Chopko & Carl Oser

Continue down the road of demystifying two and three-part harmonies with Melanie Ida Chopko and Carl Oser, so you're ready to add extra melodic pizazz the next time you're singing with friends.*

Using the building blocks of major and minor chords, we'll learn how to create harmony goosebumps and add parts to compliment melodies. By the end of the workshop, you will have mastered singing a two-part harmony, have a solid footing in a more jazzy three-part arrangement, and understand how to create harmony magic at home while singing along to your favorite songs. We will also keep exploring the fundamentals of the connected voice - posture, breathing and support ( ie,'What the heck is my diaphragm again?!')

Pre-requisite - the ability to sing Happy Birthday in tune. Please email Melanie with any questions about joining in!

*No actual hot tub field trips included. But we love invitations!
