Harmonising Single Themes
Pink Floyd's 'Another Brick in the Wall'
Add Thirds
Add third part filling harmony
Add fourth part, filling harmony
Queen's 'I want it all'
Add harmony - as simple as you like...
More harmony - male voices up high
More harmony - doubling at the octave
Orchestrating Themes
Power Chords
Harmonic Variations..?
Claps / Body Percussion / Beatbox
Add Bassline
Beginning To Overlay
Unconventional Mash
Using Canons
Canons - groups begin at the beginning of every bar
- try starting every crotchet...
Clouding - one group sings as written and the other
with double length notes
Fugal Clouding - as above but with one group singing a
fifth below the written pitch
Canonic Fugal Clouding...!
Turning Minor to Major
This tune has no 'minor notes' and so it is easy to convert.
Stack the harmony at the 5th and the 3rd and convert any 'minor notes' in the harmony parts to major ones...
Alternating major and minor
This tune does have a minor third. Keep it there in the tune but put major 3rds and 6ths in the harmony parts...
... Stack fifths
... Stack more fifths
... Add thirds (remember, major thirds)
... Add a repeating tonic
TOP TIPS
Some of the best results are from happy accidents. What looks like it will work on paper might turn out to be quite bland so dare to experiment.

Don't worry about consecutive harmony, it feels satisfying to sing and is easy to pick up.

Be current with your music choices - the idea is that themes do not need to be 'taught' only 'remembered'. TV adverts (unfortunately) are a good source or look at the top 40 singles chart.

Take suggestions from students and deputise them in as leader.

Creating mashups build skills in listening, analysing, composing and performing.
