How can I keep from singing?

I went to a folk harmony singing class this morning; it was really fun. But it will take a lot of practice to be able to do it reasonably well. I can “hear” where the upper harmony should go, a third up, but my voice is pretty low, and hearing the lower harmony isn’t as intuitive for me. The subtitle of the class was: How to Find and Keep a Part. I found it, but keeping it was a challenge! The teacher is Lauren Sheehan. I would love to take another class with her. We worked mostly with “Will the Circle Be Unbroken?” finding tenor (upper) and baritone (lower) harmony lines, and then went freeform on “How Can I Keep From Singing?”

Working on surprise project number one. Whose idea was it to use navy blue yarn? It’s really hard to see what I’m doing. The sun has to be shining AND the lights have to be on. Oh, yeah, it was me. No picture yet, but soon!

  1. I just heard about whole note singing. The singing harp or something like that. I was on oregon art beat. I didn’t think it sounded that great, but being in the room I could see it being fun. I have a hard time keeping my part too, I just want to wander around where I hear my voice sounding good!

    Is whole note singing the same as shape singing? Someone just mentioned that to me this morning. Now we need to add singing to knitting!
