The Educational Appeal of Barbershop Music
DeGroot, Joanna
Teaching Music, v16 n4 p53 Jan 2009
Barbershop music has undergone some thing of a revival in recent years; some would argue that it never went away. The author discusses how music teachers can make use of this uniquely American art form. Rick Spencer, director of music and education for the Barbershop Harmony Society, the world's largest all-male singing organization, encourages teachers to incorporate barbershop music into exercise, sight-reading, and mini-performances.
