"I've been singing and teaching harmony for a long time now, and I must say that these CD's are the best I've come across. They are not overloaded with theory and musical jargon, which makes it easy for the non-musicians to follow. Great choice of songs, too."
"Awesome job, exactly what I was looking for. If you intend to improve your singing abilities harmonizing with others, buy this pack.
Will put you on track within a few hours."
"If you are a frustrated harmony singer, these CDs will change your life."
"This CD set is awesome! Susan's instructions are very clear and easy to understand."
"Great CDs, great teacher: I have another one of Susan Anders' teaching CDs (the No Scales, Just Songs Vocal Workout) and it has helped me a lot. I've already learned more about singing harmony than I have in the last 5 years."

Harmony Singing By Ear uses two complementary methods to teach singers how to harmonize by ear. After reviewing some music theory basics, instructional
sections walk you through how to find the upper and lower harmony parts for eight
songs. Those same harmonies are sung on music tracks. On these
tracks the vocal parts are panned to different speakers--singers can pan to
one speaker and just hear their part, pan to the middle and hear both parts, or
pan to the other speaker to practice with the other part. In this way,
beginning harmonizers can control how much or how little of the other voices they
hear, making it easier to stay on their part. More confident harmonizers can
sing without the guide vocals. Singers who simply want to learn and sing the
harmony parts can skip the instructional tracks, go right to the music and vocal
tracks, and pan their speakers to the right to learn the harmony part for each
Though much of Harmony Singing By Ear focuses on the how-tos of parallel
harmonizing above and below a melody, singers will also learn about call-response,
blue note, chromatic and block chord harmonies. Music tracks without vocals
are also included so singers can practice their parts "without the training
wheels". Plus, there are supplementary sections including exercises to build
one's harmonizing skills and advice on how to polish harmony parts. The songs
range in style from pop to R&B to folk to modern rock to jazz.
Skill Level: Beginning to Intermediate. The early songs are very easy, the
later songs increase in difficulty.

Melodies: F# below middle C to A above middle C-- alto/high tenor range
Upper harmonies: A below middle C to C above middle C-- alto/soprano range
Lower harmonies: D below middle C to F# above middle C-- baritone/tenor/low alto range
All parts can be sung an octave above or below the harmonies on the CD to
allow lower and higher singers to join in. How to do this is explained on CD #1.

"I sing in a band and was previously never able to sing harmony at all. I went through your Harmony Singing by Ear program and I am now singing harmony on all of the songs that I am not singing lead on. I attribute all of my success to you."
"I have been writing and performing my own music since I was 10 years old. I really thought that I didn't have an ear for harmonizing. Come to find out I just didn't have the right teacher. Susan Anders' 3 cd set 'Harmony Singing by Ear' is an excellent way to learn how to harmonize. It's clear, fun and easy and for the beginner as well as the more experienced singer."
"I just wanted to write you a quick note and tell you how much I've
learned from Harmony Singing by Ear. I'm
in an R&B band that works every weekend and your CD set has given me
confidence not only as a harmony singer but also when I sing lead.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!"
"I just happened upon your 3-cd set Harmony Singing by Ear, bought it, and I'm *loving* it!! I never knew that I had a good ear for harmony, and, I do, apparently, once you explained the principles!! Thanks so much for such a user-friendly CD. My 8 year old loves it, too."
"I have not had anyone be able to teach me how to harmonize properly, or in a way that made sense. I have not even yet gotten through the first disk of "Harmony Singing By Ear," but I can tell you this is just what I needed. It's great, easy to understand and follow."
"Great CDs! The lessons are just what one needs to learn to sing harmony. Very helpful for a person who does not sing harmony naturally or has no clue of how to find the harmony parts."
"These CDs have enabled me to learn not only some of the basics of music theory, but also how to sing harmony to some really great songs."
