This fun and challenging class is recommended for singers who have taken Leela's By-Ear Harmony Singing I and/or II classes or for more experienced singers. In this class, the singers will create their own harmony to an assigned song each week, using concepts presented in class, their own creativity, and a good bit of trial, error, and courage. Simultaneously, we will learn and sing, by ear of course, new songs in two or more arranged harmony parts and thereby strengthen our confidence, ability to hear and hold parts, vocal power, and sheer join in singing. Song selection will mainly be drawn from folk, old time, and old country repertoires, but may range outside of those genres.

NOTE: Class will be limited to 25 participants. Pre-registration required.
Here is what former members of Leela's By-Ear Harmony Singing classes have said:
"I loved Leela's harmony singing class! No matter how tired I was at the end of the day, it lifted me to go sit with a small group of strangers and sing! The friendly informal atmosphere and Leela's teaching style made it a comfortable experience for everyone. It was marvelous to learn a different song each week and to find at the end of a class, I could sing not only the melody but the high harmony and low harmony--by heart. To be able to stand at the end of the night and make music, interchanging the parts--inspiring!"
"The class was fun and it brought me joy to sing with others. I found a greater range in my voice and began to exercise it in a way I never have. Leela is a fabulous teacher! Even for a beginner like me, I felt I could sing with others and hold my own and I also had room to make mistakes and sing off key."
