HD-200 Harmony Directors
There is certainly an art to ear training...
This comprehensive tool brings harmony training, rhythm training and ensemble timing together in one convenient device. It enables music educators to clearly demonstrate pure temperaments and for students to learn how to tune individual notes within chords, so that entire chords may be tuned. The HD-200 Harmony Director helps musicians understand how each part fits into the complete harmony of the ensemble. This level of understanding will help your ensemble move from good to outstanding.
A Japanese Secret
Have you ever heard a Japanese high school band or chorus? Ever wonder how they get suchgreat blend and intonation? Almost all Japanese school bands use this special training tool which, until now, has only been available in Japan. The Harmony Director allows you to teach through examples rather than words alone, the kind of harmonic understanding that normally takes many years of experience to develop.
Part of the HD-200's power is its ease-of-use and friendly interface. With two LCD screens and intuitive “one touch” operations, the HD-200 empowers educators in teaching intonation and ensemble timing to high levels quicker than conventional means.
