Sing Harmonies App for iPhone, iPad, and Android
December 2018: The Android version of the app wasn't available on Google Play for a couple of months while we made some adjustments to it, but it's now available again.
January 2018: I've just released an Android version of the Sing Harmonies App on Google Play. It works just like the iOS version and comes loaded with three harmony songs: Lean On Me, Teach Your Children, and Swing Low, Sweet Chariot. All of the 38 additional songs available for the iOS version are also available for the Android version via in-app purchase. Detailed song info is here. If you like the app please leave a review on Google Play.
Sing Harmonies can help you learn to sing harmonies and polish your harmonizing skills. You can mute or play any or all of the parts while the song is playing. That means you can just play one part to learn it, then you can just play the remaining parts so you can practice singing your part with the other voices. Or you can play your part at half volume if you need a bit of help.
The app is great for learning and practicing harmonies. If you want to learn how to sing harmonies by ear I'd recommend that you use my method Harmony Singing by Ear.
I came up with the idea for the Sing Harmonies iPhone App several winters ago. I arranged the vocals, then my husband Tom Manche produced all of the songs at his studio Studio X. My friend Paul Schatzkin connected me with Firefly Logic here in Nashville, who turned it into a real app. Firefly Logic is no more, so we are now working with new developers.
The iOS version comes with three songs, all in 4-part harmony: Lean On Me, Proud Mary, and Teach Your Children. The app costs $1.99 and works on iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. We continue to update the app and periodically add new songs. In addition to the app's three songs there are 38 more songs available via in-app purchase, all in four-part harmony. The song list, keys, and arrangement info are all here.
