If you’re new to harmony, would like a basic introduction to the theory of harmony, and want to have fun learning harmony parts, learning how to find harmony parts, and singing with others, then this is the class for you! Kathy and Ann both have experience singing harmony in various bands and have enjoyed teaching harmony together for several years now. This class will explore songs in various genres: old-time, gospel, country, pop, who knows! Bring a brave spirit, a smile, and a recording device if you have one. We believe everyone can and should sing.

Class Prerequisites: Carrying a tune is always helpful, but the desire to sing is the most important thing.    

Class Level: Beginner/Novice

Required Class Materials: Recording device if desired. 

Kathy Hinkle (pictured right) grew up singing in the car, at home and at church with her mother and two sisters. Early on she found the “alto” voice and that’s where she's been for more than 50 years--Ooh, that’s hard to say! PTA meetings in her small rural community, usually well-attended, always included time for group singing, though the school system could only afford a traveling music teacher we saw maybe three or four times a year. A non-audition choral class in college introduced her to classical repertoire, which she loved. In the mid-80s, she found opportunities in Birmingham to sing with large and small choral groups: Cathedral Church of the Advent Choir, Birmingham Concert Chorale, Camerata and Alabama Choral Artists. In the 90s, she found her way to old-time and bluegrass music. She sings now with the Advent Choir and The Herb Trotman Band

Ann Whitley (pictured at top) has been playing and singing old-time music since the mid-80's. She has played and sung in numerous configurations including the Atlanta Swamp Opera Cajun Band, the Peavine Creek String Band, Whistlin' Rufus, and The Rosin Sisters. She has taught harmony singing at the Blue Ridge Old-time Music Week in Mars Hill, NC for many years with her two Rosin Sisters and has taught harmony singing at the Alabama Folk School for the past two years with Kathy Hinkle. Ann's website is www.rosinsisters.com
