Who are you?!? #
We're a small group of people living in Berlin who enjoy singing barbershop together.
What is barbershop? #
Barbershop is four-part close harmony singing. You may have seen a barbershop quartet before without realizing it: They appear in The Music Man, in Scrubs, on Jimmy Fallon. Barbershop music is full of seventh chords, syncopations, and play between the different voices. The four parts of barbershop singing are tenor, lead, baritone, and bass. Singing barbershop can be a challenge, but that's what makes it fun! As Deke Sharon puts it: It's the martial arts of a cappella singing.
Can I listen to more barbershop? #
Yes! We've compiled a playlist on Spotify as a small introduction to the style.
What are tags? #
Tags are short pieces of barbershop music that are attached at the end of songs. They are easy to learn and fun to sing!
What do I need to prepare? #
You don't need to prepare anything; we will have sheet music printed out and a toy piano in case we need it.
What do I need to bring? #
You & your voice! Maybe some water. Maybe a friend.
