What Can I Expect?

THE BASICS​

  • You need to be able to sing in tune

  • You need to be able to hear those around you and blend your voice with theirs

  • You need to be able to eventually hold your own - that is, sing your own part when surrounded by those you don't.

  • Being a warm-up routine at home before you practice. This is good for your voice and can specifically work on different skills at once.

  • You will want to have a plan for practicing songs at home. It's just like exercising the body - if you do it on a regular basis, you will reap the benefits.

FOUR VOICE PARTS

If you sang in a school or other traditional choir, you will be most familiar with SATB or SSAA choral music, where the melody is usually sung by the highest vocal part, first soprano. The voice parts in barbershop harmony have different names and different functions that in either SATB or SSAA vocal styles.

You will be provided with all the education you need to be a successful barbershop As a member of Georgia Sensation Chorus, you will receive personalized vocal training during rehearsals by our director, Dylan Oxford, and our music team members and during our annual chorus retreat. Sweet Adelines International provides access to extensive training materials and Region 14 hosts semi-annual weekend educational retreats.
