Harmony for Organists Level 1 is a 12 week video course designed specifically for organists who struggle with the basics of harmony and voice leading. It is ideal for anyone whose dream is to learn to harmonize melodies, hymn tunes and chorales in 4 parts (SATB) on paper and on the organ with pedals.
Weeks 1-2: Repetition of basics of music theory, range of the voices, functional system, melodic position, closed and open position
Weeks 3-4: Harmonic Progression of T and D, D and T, T and S, and S and T chords, sequences
Weeks 5-6: Connection S and D Chords
Weeks 7-8: Melodic progression of the chords from Week 3-4
Weeks 9-10: Harmonization of the bass
Weeks 11-12: Harmonization of the soprano
WHAT YOU WILL RECEIVE:
Once per week for 12 weeks in a row you will receive a training video and a PDF file with examples and exercises.
Once you complete the exercises of this course, you will be able to sit down at the organ bench and play a harmonization of the non-modulating melody, such as a simple hymn tune for four voices at sight with proper voice leading using the main Tonic, Subdominant, and Dominant chords.
Even though you might have never learned any foundational music theory, in Weeks 1 and 2 I will also teach you the theoretical basics which will be needed later in this course for learning harmony.

Here's what customers are saying:
"I found the fingerings, registration ideas, and general comments to be excellent" - Robert
"I have found your download very helpful! It was really excellent! I have watched some of your teaching videos, and when I read your instructions, I try to imagine you are there teaching me! You may feel disappointed that I am ~2-3 days behind, but I am a slow learner, and I have committed to taking the time to get it right as you say. But the other night my wife commented that she had never heard me play such a detailed melody in the left hand so well! (my left hand is generally poor!)" - John
"Dear Vidas. I just got through learning your practice score of Benedicamus from Tabulatura Nova, by Scheidt. I used your practice schedule and it is an excellent approch to learning any composition. I like all the performance practice information you include in this score. Best wishes." - Frank
