RESOURCES FOR WORKING WITH MUSIC EDUCATORS

Barbershoppers are eager to encourage music educators to include barbershop in their
curriculum. It is critical to the success of our outreach efforts that we always leave the music
educator with the best possible impression of the barbershop art form and how it can
enhance/augment the teacher’s music education program. Here are some resources to assist
you in those efforts. The Next Gen Video is particularly helpful in introducing music educators and
students to barbershop.

OPPORTUNITIESTO SUPPORT YIH FINANCIALLY

Not every Barbershopper – or Barbershop Chapter – is prepared to make the commitment
necessary to promote Youth in Harmony initiatives. But every barbershopper can
provide financial support for these critical endeavors. Here are some ways you might consider
supporting the work of others across the District and country!
