Course 5 – Harmony

What is harmony? Strictly speaking, harmony is defined as two or more notes playing simultaneously to create a chord. When harmony is used to create a series of chords, we call that a chord progression. A chord progression, also known as harmonic progression, is a tool used in western music to create the tension and resolution which is at the core of what makes a particular piece of music interesting and emotive.

Chords can be used to guide a listener on an emotional journey, to set the background for a great vocal performance, or to add a feeling of closure, or one of unresolve or tension. Let’s get into how to use harmonics and chord progressions to craft songs which move, lift, crescendo, whisper, and rouse!
