Hi guys I am Spanish director and I have a trouble. I got several methods of Vocal Technic, however, I am looking for a method to sign in tune and in harmony. I am looking for a book in which there are exercises to sing chords ans Harmony Sequences.
I would be very grateful if you could help me up in this matter.
Have a nice day.

I am nearing release of my new web app at http://www.musapp.club.
MusAPP is designed to develop performance skills using audio/visual biofeedback. Notation is shown and you can sing or play an instrument and watch the visual pitch pointer to the target note. You can’t go to the next note until you correctly sing the target pitch.
The process is to use the MusAPP pitch pointer method to help develop or retrain the student’s vocal muscle memory or fingering and embrasure muscle memory to sing or play on pitch, in rhythm, and on tempo.
Contact me if you would like to become a BETA tester as we complete this huge project.

Correct singing technique, especially breath control, is essential for producing pitches accurately. The best resource I know for all aspects of vocal technique and problem-solving is Prescriptions for Choral Excellence by Shirlee Emmons and Constance Chase (Oxford University Press).
One thing I’ve found helpful for specific situations is to isolate the problem and work on it. For instance, in singing a descending line such as A G F E, the final note may go a little flat. The descending semitone can drop too far from the momentum of the preceding whole tones. Singing just the perfect 4th A E accurately, then filling in the G and F helps lock in the E as the destination. Reversing the order then descending also helps: E FG A G F E.
