Who is it for?

This course is suitable for people that are able to sing but want to develop their ability to sing harmonies and backing vocals. If you've not had vocals lessons before we would definitely suggest getting the Worship Vocals Course and working through that before attempting the Harmony & Backing Vocals Course. Like this you can be sure that you are singing correctly with proper breath control.

 

What else is available to help me practice?

We have a DVD called Worship Backing Band - Musicians Practice Tracks which contains 54 worship songs that you can play along with. Practice is a lot more fun with other people! You can select to take the vocals out of the mix so you are effectively the singer with a pro band. Its like high quality worship karaoke. The DVD shows on-screen words and chords so if you play an instrument you can also play along as you sing. 

 

We also have two warm up and work-out CDs which are an excellent accompaniment to the DVD set. The Essential Musicademy Vocals Warm-Up CD contains many of the vocals warm-up exercises taught on the DVDs. Its very helpful to have all the exercises together in one place in a format you can use in the car, at church or wherever you are. The Advanced Vocals Work-out CD goes a step further with a variety of hard core exercises to really train your voice. You'll see a marked improvement in vocal tone, range and power as well as an improvement in your ability to hear and sing harmonies.

 

Will the DVDs work on my DVD player?

The DVDs are NTSC and coded Region 0 which means they will play anywhere in the world.

 

Can I get a refund if I don't like the DVDs?

Yes, you are also covered by our 100% customer satisfaction guarantee if having received the DVDs you do not feel they are right for you.

1. The contrasting colours on the menu selections are very close and it is a little difficult to navigate and select a menu item.
2. A final track with melody and harmonies together I would have found helpful.

As a church pastor and praise band leader, I've been looking for a tool to help beginner and intermediate vocalists (who may or may not know how to read music) learn how to harmonize. This product does exactly what it claims AND it has met my need to provide some of my vocalists with good instructional material for learning how to harmonize well. We've put it to use and it works!!!

Little context but not useless | Review by med3484

Ease Of Use
Maybe I picked the wrong video series. As leaders in the church music realm, we deal with individuals that have little knowledge of music or perhaps a misguided perspective of how each detail plays a role in the overall picture. I have struggled for years to accomplish a simple straight forward method to teaching harmony. Certain groups get it, and certain groups don't. I think some of the information was useful, however, the things that need to be taught and explained is the structure of how music is formed and why. You mention 3rds and 5ths, but there's no connection to the "volunteer" singer as to what that really means. Are we singing alto or tenor? Do we always stick with that one part or does the music allow us in certain times to stray from our "range" to better suite the music or switch parts with the "alto or tenor" ranges, etc.? Maybe breaking down parts through a series of chords in each song would be helpful for folks to learn and formulate parts. Where is the melody, where is the tenor part, where is the alto part? Is this a chord inversion, etc.

There are lots of folks out there who would like to sing, but think they can't sing any line other than the melody. This helps vocalists to create better harmonies and gives them confidence in their singing. Better harmonies equal a better sound and a better sound helps recruit new vocalists onto the team. Thanks for this...it has helped in more ways than one!

A very well produced dvd on teaching foundations for singing in harmony | Review by Paz

Ease Of Use
I bought this dvd set last year, and I must say I was really pleased with the quality of the dvd. It is simple to use to start with and well thought, so that you understand what are you trying to learn when it comes to singing in harmony in the context of a backing vocalist. This will help both novices and expeirenced singers who perhaps need more confidence due to a lack of practice.

I've tried a variety of instructional DVD to help improve the skills of our singers and they all seem to be the same...focus is on warm up and breath control but no practical tips. Your's is the best by far. Many helpful tips and a unique approach. I'd recommend this to anyone looking for an affordable training tool.

Very Good. Have ordered my instructional DVD's for singers but they all seem to focus on warm ups and breath control but don't give practical advice on how to take and beginner and make them better. Nice.

MUSICADEMY COMMENT:
Thanks for your note. I can only assume that you've not yet gone through the Musicademy Worship Vocals Course DVDs because they cover a lot more than warm ups and breath control. This Harmony product, however, is a lot more detailed on harmony and BV skills. Together they are a very comprehensive course.
