Learn Harmony

Learn Harmony | Learning Choir Harmony | Scoop.it
Jessica Lowe's insight:

I like this site because it provides a visual representation of harmony with a technical viewpoint in mind.

ChoralNet - Resources and communications for the global choral community
Jessica Lowe's insight:

This resource is from a well-known choral resource. I chose this page because it is a discussion board of many ideas of teaching harmonies in a young choir. Many ideas such as "moving the alto's" are great to try. This site will be useful to offer many jumping off points for my webquest.
