Music Educator Resources

Promote the power of singing! The Barbershop Harmony Society and Great Plains Harmony can be your partner in having a greater impact in your classroom and community.

Free Educators Guide

The free Music Educator Guide gives a brief overview of the barbershop style, including vocal production, ranges and transpositions, tuning, and interpretive considerations. If you did not sign up for this at our NDMEA booth you can do so here!

 

Free Sheet Music!!

We proudly provide free sheet music for everyone to enjoy. In addition to the Barbershop classics, you'll find music to help you celebrate birthdays, holidays, and more. Happy singing!

 

Become a Music Education Partner

Do you want to bring the fun of Barbershop to your classroom? Become a Music Education Partner and tap into a broad network of men and women who share your passion for song and harmony. The Barbershop Harmony Society appreciates that what you do makes better people, for life. We know that singing together in harmony builds bonds across divisions of race, gender, economics, and beliefs. We're here to support you with professional development resources, classroom materials and programming, and destination events that will energize students.

 

Grants

Through the Harmony Foundation’s generous annual support of the Barbershop Harmony Society, we are able to provide grant opportunities that will create powerful community impact. While our grant program has historically focused on youth outreach, we have plans to expand to include other innovative projects.
