Review: Finally! The rudiments of harmony explained and demonstrated in this easy-to-use and understand songbook and accompanying tutorial CD.

Beginning with an overview of intervals and chord construction (with accompanying exercises), the book then guides the singer through 18 "Songbites,"practice pieces where each three-part harmony arrangement is broken down so that the parts can be rehearsed individually. Other sections include "Tips and Techniques,"a truly practical introduction to singing style, particularly as it applies to harmony vocals-things like how to hear your part and stay on it. The last chapter focuses on sight-singing and chart-reading. "Harmony Vocals"is recommended for any beginning/intermediate harmony singer.
