Event description

Description

The basic idea of harmonizing is to sing along with a lead melody in a complimentary way that is harmonic. Most anyone can learn to hear and hopefully do this, given a little ear training. In this workshop, Surel's Place Artist-in-Resident Reeb Willms will outline the foundations of harmony singing, breaking it down into a few simple ideas that can be put into practice right away! Particpants will practice by finding a tonic or root note, singing a scale, then creating a chord, finding an octave, and practicing these in different keys. All will learn a song or two in class and use these basic concepts to outline first the melody firmly and then branch out to sing harmony parts.

Bring a pen and paper, and a recording device if you like. Come enjoy the empowering experience of singing harmony with others. All ages and experience levels welcome.

Biography:

Reeb Willms was born and raised on a wheat farm outside of Waterville, on the high desert plateau of Central Washington. Her early music exposure was to her dad and uncles singing old country songs. Reeb played piano growing up, but was always drawn to singing, and in her early twenties, started to sing and learn to play guitar. Her love of music began to unfold when she lived in Bellingham, WA where she formed bands with musician friends she met there. These were formative years and led her to a professional career in music. She currently lives in Portland, OR and can now be found touring internationally as a singer and guitar player. She tours with the Foghorn Stringband, a musical project devoted to playing traditional fiddle music and ballads. She also tours with the Caleb Klauder Country Band, a musical project devoted to performing original roots country and promoting dance culture. She also tours and performs occasionally as a duo with Caleb Klauder, and enjoys this opportunity for a stripped down sound based around strong duet singing. Reeb also enjoys opportunities to teach guitar and singing. She has recorded with the Foghorn Stringband, the Caleb Klauder Country Band, and also with Caleb Klauder as a duo.
