HMD Concert Band Harmonic Studies Grade 3+


Categories: ,


Originally developed as part of our 2020 Virtual Band Consortium. This packet of chorale and chord exercises includes: I-IV-V-I progressions in 12 major keys, progressions around the circle of 4ths: Major, minor, Dom. 7, 4-3 suspensions and Canon by Pachelbel. The 4-part chorales are orchestrated for every instrument and can be performed by literally any 4 instruments: Chorale by Bach, “Horkstow Grange” as compiled by Grainger, Chaconne from 1st Suite by Holst, Nimrod from Enigma Variations by Elgar.

Cinematic backing tracks are included for every exercise at different tempi so that your students can play along for more fun and even record themselves along with the track for video assignments or projects.

All Virtual Files allow you to share with your students digitally.
