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.

Ease Of Use
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!!!

Works great for learning the harmony for the specific songs it give you. It does not teach how to find harmony though, which I was looking for.

Musicademy's response:
We have a few other products that are more technical in relation to learning to hear and find the harmonies if you've not naturally been able to pick it up from the Harmony DVDs.

The Worship Vocals Course DVDs go through it in some detail, the Playing By Ear DVDs cover the theory aspects of chord (and harmony construction) and the Advanced Vocals Work-Out CD gives you lots of practice at pitching intervals.

Great Tool! Great Value | Review by cslink

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.

Good but could improve | Review by Helend
Effectiveness
Value
Ease Of Use
Good product. Has good quality tracks to practice with. I am very new to harmonising and I would have liked a little bit of more basic information rather than being told to get lessons for this. Even a short 3-5 minute introduction would have been useful.

MUSICADEMY COMMENT:
Thanks for your review. We try not to duplicate content across our DVD series so the basic singing information is all contained on the main Musicademy Worship Vocals Course. We couldn't possibly do justice to the requirements for proper breathing, control, posture, warm-ups etc in a DVD set focussed on harmony. If you want just a heads-up on basic vocal technique look to just get volume 1 of the Worship Vocals Course - that will get you started with some good technique from the start.

Great Product! Only one caution... | Review by Shyrl
Effectiveness
Value
Ease Of Use
This is a great product that has the potential to help any singer with learning harmonies and how to sing as a backup vocalist. The only caution is if you have a female worship leader, it may not entirely translate, because the ranges of the songs are generally different when a female is leading. I have a concern that if my vocalists try to learn the harmonies with the DVD, that it won't work the same for our application, with a female lead. That's the only downside. Still a great teaching tool.

MUSICADEMY COMMENT
The principles of 3rd and 5ths will work across different keys so you should be fine regardless of having a male or female lead. The point to learn is the notes to sing relative to the melody line rather than learning a harmony for a particular key.

Use this to recruit more vocalists | Review by Barb
Effectiveness
Value
Ease Of Use
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!
