Description:


Welcome to your tutorial on how to sing in a group! Our focus is mainly acapella group singing, because that requires the most specialized set of skills, compared to solo singing. But you can use what you’ll learn here in any group singing context!  
 
Part 1 covers confident and consistent intonation, with exercises to challenge and train your ear. Part 2 will detail dynamic variety and balance, and part 3 will tackle blend, including vowel matching and tone color.  
 
You don’t need a group to complete this tutorial, but if you have a singing buddy, invite them to join you and we’ll get started!
