Class Description

So, you thought Barbershop was just for old guys wearing straw hats? YOU THOUGHT WRONG!

Deke Sharon, leader of the Contemporary A Cappella Community, Music Director for the “Pitch Perfect” movies, and arranger for groups like Pentatonix, calls barbershop “The Martial Arts Master” of a cappella singing. Become a master by learning and performing challenging arrangements that will blow your mind. In this class you will be introduced to a world of barbershop harmony that include boys, girls, and mixed ensembles and quartets. We will learn tags of songs and master at least 2 full songs. This class is not for the faint of heart. Be ready for a challenge and become an a cappella harmony master!

If we have to transition to online classes during the session, this class will not continue. Families will be given the option to either transfer to one of a certain selection of classes or receive a prorated refund.

I studied Music Education at Gardner-Webb University in Boiling Spring, NC. I have served as a music minister at several different churches. One of my hobbies is barbershop quartet and chorus singing. I have directed a 95-man barbershop chorus called the Carolina Vocal Express. I have also sung with a couple of highly ranked International barbershop quartets and recently sang with the Ambassadors of Harmony, from St. Louis, MO. I love teaching music to young students and adults. I am married with 7 children, 3 of whom are currently participating in CYT.
