At a certain stage of my composing projects, the students need to add harmony. How you approach this will depend on the students’ level but this will show you one way I teach this part of the composing process.
Another great way to work on this is to have students find out what’s happening in their repertoire. Examine pieces and see what the composer did and they might just find something they can “steal”.
What are quick clips?
Colourful Keys Quick Clips are all about giving you a taste of what my lessons are actually like – in action.
I certainly don’t claim to be an expert, and I don’t have all the answers. I just know how much seeing real teaching with real students has helped me to grow and improve as a teacher.
Let me know what you think!
