Meet Natasha, Alice and Lauren. Three girls with 3 voices. The girls have had only a few singing lessons at MooreMelodies, but already you can hear a difference.
I am keen to work on harmonies and vocal blending with the trio.
In music, harmony is the use of simultaneous pitches (notes and tones) The study of harmony involves chord, their construction and the principles of connection that govern them.
In less technical terms what is singing in harmony?
Have you heard a guitarist or a pianist play a chord? Chords are made up from the notes of a scale, like a C major scale. Think the sound of music with Julie Andrews-Do Re Me ....
A major chord is made up of the 1st, 3rd, and 5th note from a scale. Let's say the lead singer of a band is singing the 3rd note in a C major scale, which is an E. A third above that would be a G and a third below would be a C. You can also sing a fifth above or below, or even an octave.
Sometimes it takes a lot of patience and determination to get the right kind of harmonies. When working together, you have to listen to each other and listen for strengths and weakness. You need to work together. So far so good for Natasha, Alice and Lauren.
If you are looking at being successful then you MUST practice!
I look forward to the next lesson girls!!

I was luckily enough to see Mr Gary Barlow in concert on the 13th November 2012 at the B.I.C in Bournemouth!
Unbelievably the tickets had sold out 45 minutes! I was one lucky gal to be one with a golden ticket...good to have friends who are on top of the game.
The two hour concert went faster than a heart beat, but I enjoyed every minute. Included was a swing section from Mr Barlow himself, and with his band behind him, he sang away Classic hits from both his solo years, and Take That's earlier fame and later releases. Middle aged woman were dreamily looking and reminiscing whilst he sang on. He oozed charm, his vocals were clear, cool and collective. His range was superb and right on pitch! With a vocal and performance like that he must have warmed up well!
The pop star, who is also head judge on The X Factor, will perform 16 dates across Britain and Ireland, running through until January.
He says: "I'm really excited about these dates. Playing live is my favourite thing and I haven't played a solo show for over a year now. Last year playing two London shows was brilliant, we all had such a good time, so I thought, right, let's get out and see the rest of the country!" www.u.tv
Barlow went solo after Take That split in 1996, and toured the UK in 1999. The band then reunited in 2005 and has enjoyed a string of hugely successful European treks.
