Sample Shofar Harmonies

Why Shofar Parts and Harmonies?
1 Cor 12:21 speaks to the Godly concept of one body, formed of multiple smaller parts working as one single whole organism. No one is better, or above, no one is lesser or below. This should apply to a shofar team as well as the “Body” of Christ. It is the direction to move and function to better secure the blessings and anointing of He who called us to call to others.
My goal is to build our team into one body, rather than a group of individual “loose cannons” that are not sounding together as a team.
I am a worship leader by trade and am very familiar with building teams, orchestrating the members into team players that sound like team players, and seeing and hearing a resulting sound that is greater than the sum of the parts.
Organizing into Patterns

These combinations of Tekiah (1 blast) and Shevarim (3 blasts) use plain notes and slide notes

(slide note = a lower note shifting to next higher note indicated by a “/” between two notes such as “Eb/Bb”)

each “part” is easy in itself but requires paying attention to the timing of the other shofars as part of one cohesive team (rather than a free-for-all)

notation:

/    = slide between notes

^    = octave note (higher note)

  = note continues

~~~ = shevarim notes (& qty)


“Double Stacked Shevarim”

A: Eb ………………………………….……………

B: Eb ….Eb/Bb Eb/Bb Eb/Bb  …………….

C: Eb …………………………………Bb~~/Eb^


“Split Tekiah”
1. Team A sounds Eb
1. Team B sounds Eb
2. then Team B shifts to Bb (while Team A stays on Eb)
A: Eb …….
B: Eb … Bb

“Stacked Tekiah”
Team A sounds Eb
then Team B sounds Bb
then Team C sounds Bb while Team B sounds Eb
A: Eb ………………….
B: …… Bb ……… Eb^
C: …………………..Bb

“Stacked Slide Tekiah”
Team A sounds Eb
then Team B sounds Eb/Bb
then Team C sounds Eb/Bb while B sounds Eb
A: Eb ……………………..
B: ……. Eb/Bb …… Eb^
C: ………………….Eb/Bb
