Course Highlights:

  • Dive into the world of harmonic audiation and prepare your students to more easily learn to audiate tonal patterns, tonalities, and of course, harmonic functions. Harmonic audiation also serves as the bedrock for learning to create and improvise—the highest levels of music achievement.
  • Receive a comprehensive curriculum—in an easy-to-navigate e-book—including songs and chants in the widest variety of tonalities and meters available. Many are absolute classroom hits your students will love! Check out the full book contents here.
  • Learn the curriculum by ear (and/or notation) with audio files of melodies, root melodies, and tonal patterns for a comprehensive music learning experience. 
  • Videos of student achievement, sample lessons, and recordings of past HLS courses
  • Playlists of recordings to use in HLS
  • New this year is the addition of audio files of harmonic patterns, cadences, and progressions, so that you can teach yourself advanced harmonic functions simply by listening.

You will learn to:

  • Teach harmonic functions to children effectively.
  • Enhance your own harmonic vocabulary.
  • Audiate extensions, jazz chords, and jazz progressions.
