11 6 Vocal analysis and audition, 11 7 Information request for appearance on chapter show. 11 8 Arrangement and Reproduction Request,The chapter music team role. 1 1 Why have a music team, Every chapter in the Society is different large or small chorus or quartet oriented. striving for a gold medal or wishing to entertain local audiences Yet every chapter is. tied to every other chapter by its love of barbershop music It is the goal of the Society. that every man will be able to savor the experience of four part harmony in his own. The American College Dictionary defines team as a number of persons associated in. some joint action For a number of years many of the most successful chapters. throughout our Society have been using a music team concept It may have a different. name committee staff group crew squad council cabinet board or just the music. guys But no matter what it s called it is essentially a group of men working together to. meet the musical needs of the chapter For this reason the word team seems most. appropriate here, No manual can prescribe exactly how to create a successful music program for every. chapter The number of officers and the musical skills of the leadership will vary greatly. The purpose of this manual therefore is not to prescribe what to do but rather to. provide ideas and advice on how to plan and carry out programs for music and. performance in chapters throughout the Society,1 2 Benefits of the music team structure.
Through an active music team under the leadership of the vice president for music and. performance chapters can provide a successful and enjoyable music program for their. members How can this best be accomplished, The first step is to consider the mission of the chapter What are the goals How can the. music program support them,1 2 1 Musical quality, First and foremost a music team format can raise the quality of performance by the. chorus Instead of the director being responsible for every facet of teaching and. performance a number of men assist him by specializing in particular areas of expertise. It is unrealistic to expect one man to do it all vocal instruction teaching new music. visual planning and execution music selection setting up the sound system auditioning. new members booking performances developing phrasing and a multitude of other. things Yet all these items must be attended to if we are to present a musical product to. the public of which we can be proud If a number of capable team members share these. responsibilities a qualified director can pull it all together and create a music program. that is greater than the sum of its parts,1 2 2 Communications. With more men involved in the actual nuts and bolts of music development there can be. better communication throughout the chapter The music team will have a direct line of. communication with the administrative team through the vice president for music and. performance Cooperation and a true partnership are possible which increases not only. musical growth but all aspects of chapter activity Administrators can be constantly. aware of what is happening with musical plans and developments while the music. leadership will know where the board stands on chapter policy and management. Misunderstanding and confusion are much less likely to result. Because music team members are scattered throughout the chorus better. communication can develop in this direction as well The pulse of the chorus can be felt. with more accuracy and sensitivity through section leaders row captains or assistant. directors Individual members will be better informed as to the goals and intentions of. the music leadership and have a channel through which to make suggestions register. complaints or ask questions Through this increased communication the chorus member. will be a more vital contributing part of the chapter. 1 2 3 Planning and goals, A significant outgrowth of the music team concept is the assistance the director and vice. president for music and performance receive in planning With a number of men to help. them farther reaching and stronger objectives may be set Through annual music team. planning sessions long term goals can be outlined concerning repertoire contest plans. package shows and chapter musical development With the increased input of all the. team ideas can blossom into workable realities How these goals can actually be. implemented is then a matter of team assignments and execution. As the year progresses short range planning may also be used by the music team to. prepare for rehearsals adjust lesson plans and team assignments and evaluate progress. With a strong team contributing to the chorus music program new ideas and techniques. for teaching music and handling rehearsal problems can be developed. Including members of the administrative team in the planning sessions of the music. team insures a unity of purpose and harmony within the chapter This comes through. the knowledge that all are working together toward the same goal a chapter that is. musically strong,1 2 4 Developing talent, As the Society has grown over the years two important aspects of music leadership.
have become evident On the one hand there is a growing number of experienced and. talented Barbershoppers who know a good deal about the musical side of their hobby. but do not have the opportunity to use this information On the other hand there is a. problem trying to find enough qualified chorus directors The music team concept can. take advantage of the talent pool to remedy the director shortage. By building a working music team we tend to create potential directors Coaches. section leaders and assistant directors are all given the chance to build and test their. skills in front of a group With a positive sharing attitude there is also opportunity for. in house evaluation of each team member including suggestions for improvement Men.
