It's difficult to define harmony in words. Roughly, it's the way different pitches of notes are organised together. A meaningful understanding of harmony comes from listening to it, making it, and finding out how it works.
On this page, there are three groups of articles for finding out about harmony:
- Use interactive tools to create your own harmonies and compare them to harmonies in other music
- Find out about many different uses of harmony in three particular pieces: Moving Away (African), Emerging Dances (orchestral), and Where will it take you (Jazz)
- Explore different aspects of harmony from different genres across SoundJunction
