More Harmony Singing by Ear
The follow-up to Susan Anders' popular Harmony Singing by Ear uses her same proven step-by-step method for learning how to sing harmonies, this time with seven new harmony songs. Available as a 3-CD download,
"I have been studying singing for some time, and I have to say I have learned more from your harmony method than from anything else. And you have a beautiful voice, too—Thanks!"
"I'm really impressed by how clearly structured and easy to work with this is, and my harmony singing ability has improved tremendously. Great work - I'll be ordering your vocal warm up method, too - Thanks for this resource."
More Harmony Singing by Ear includes:
- Three CDs with nearly four hours of instructional narration and fully produced music tracks.
- Music tracks with and without guide vocals. The music-only tracks can be used for rehearsal and performances.
- Seven pop, rock, and jazz songs; six songs arranged for 3 part harmony, one for 2 part harmony.
"Lean on Me" is followed by six more harmony songs that gradually increase in difficulty. All of these are 3-part harmony songs with the exception of "Gone Gone Gone", which is a 2-part version as sung by Alison Krauss and Robert Plant. The pace of the "Lean on Me" instructional narration is similar to the pace of Harmony Singing by Ear. After "Lean on Me" the instructional segments move at a slightly faster pace. At the end of each song's instructional section Susan plays a slower piano/vocal version of the song with which you can practice your harmony before singing with the music tracks.
Also included: "Harmonizing Other Songs", a segment that explains how to successfully harmonize songs that aren't on these CDs.
Skill Level: Advanced Beginner to Advanced Intermediate.
The early songs are the same level of difficulty as the songs on Harmony Singing by Ear, then increase in difficulty past the level of Harmony Singing by Ear.

It is highly recommended that singers first work with Harmony Singing by Ear, since the explanation there of chord, scale and harmonizing theory is more detailed. However, these CDs are ideal for singers who already know a small bit of theory or can sing simple parallel harmonies.
