Understanding some basics about harmony will help you to improve both your composition and improvisational skills while singing. This short video explains why.

They may not really talk about it, but most of the singers in your favourite bands will have had vocal training at some point. You can have natural talent, but singing well also involves a degree of technique and discipline. In this short video from the course Vocal Techniques 101, jazz singer Tammy Sheffer explains why it's crucial for singers to learn about harmony. 

Tammy gives a practical example of why it's important to understand the relationship between the fundamental notes of the chords and scales you are singing and playing in. Knowing what harmonies will work for a particular part mean it's much easier for you to compose and improvise around a passage or chord sequence, which in turn makes you more creative as a singer. Be sure to check out the rest of the videos in the course for even more practical advice on better singing techniques!
