I wanted to share a resource I have been working on.
Singing bass lines has been a very effective tool for my students to audiate harmonic functions. So, I have been making videos for them to use outside of school to work on their musicianship.
I share the playlist with you. I will eventually add other harmonic functions, but for now, it's just I & V. Hope you or your students find some purchase with the videos.

Thanks for sharing! Interested to see where you plan to take this. Jamming skills to pick up chord changes?

That's quite useful! I'll be looking forward to singing along to more of your videos.

Great! Glad it's useful. I plan to add more harmonic functions (IV) and some other tonalities (Dorian and Mixolydian) soon.
