Keep Your Hands To Yourself
Many of us have received well-intentioned advice about selling the song through use of faces and bodies. Too often, this results in too much hand movement to the point of distracting the audience.

Class will include interaction, discussion and experimentation. Class offered in sessions 1 and 5.

Is your chapter spending more time on non-singing “jobs” than on singing? Is it getting harder to find volunteers for those jobs? We’ll review ways in which you can increase member and audience satisfaction by doing less and singing more, and how to get off the “financial hamster wheel” so that decisions are not driven by chapter financial needs. We’ll look at free and low-cost resources available to aid with chapter operations, performance, marketing, and other needs, and we’ll review tools, services, and other solutions that you can begin using immediately.

Inside an Arranger's Mind
Needs Better Description
This would be new – I get a lot of questions from people on “how do you think up things? What’s your process?” etc. I’ve got several examples that have quite interesting stories that quartets have sung. What goes through an arranger’s mind? There’s a lot of general knowledge – not just arrangers. It isn’t fleshed out but I think it would be cool."

For software, you will need SmartScore X2 Piano Edition, from www.musitek.com. The software costs $80 to purchase, but a non-saving, demo version is free. That’s all you will need for the course for hands-on learning.  Please have it loaded onto your laptop computer when you get here to save a lot of time.

Leading From Strengths for Positive Results
As a chorus leader in any capacity, you are a critical influencer to both the joy and the success of your ensemble. Not only are you responsible for modeling the behaviors that the chorus will follow, you must also ensure that the best possible atmosphere exists for the director and the musical product to go forward unimpeded.
In this class with Inner Coach of Barbershop Jan Carley, we will simplify your role as leader, and find out what you need to be able to lead effectively. Discover your signature strengths, how to lead creatively instead of reactively and get the tools you need to inspire your chorus from the inside out. Practice the critical tools of giving and receiving feedback, giving deep acknowledgment, and learn how to build trust and resiliency. You will leave empowered and encouraged about your important leadership contribution.

Being a Masterful Director (From the Inside Out)
As director you have an enormous responsibility as the primary person inspiring your chorus’ success. It is a pressure-filled, highly-demanding role and one that is critically important for the chorus’ joy, happiness and growth toward excellence. Though we naturally expect our directors to be technically skilled and knowledgeable, your most powerful impact actually comes from who you “be”, not what you “do”. How you show up, how you model presence, vulnerability and resiliency and even how you speak is critical to creating a vibrant chorus culture of growth and success.
This session will help inspire your journey to personal mastery, and remove the barriers and interferences that get in the way of sustaining a personal position of strength, balance and positive leadership. Inner Coach of Barbershop Jan Carley has changed positively impacted dozens of barbershop directors through her innovative “Coach on Call” program. Come to this session with an open mind and heart. This could well be the class that positively shifts you and your chorus culture forever.

Grow Your Audience
A cappella music is experiencing a resurgence, but is your chapter benefitting from it? Are you struggling to find and retain an audience? Creating awareness of your chapter or chorus requires more than an advertisement in the local paper. Changing communication habits require that a chapter utilize a wide variety of marketing methods and tools. We’ll review audience needs and how to align chapter desires with them, as well as partnerships and other relationships that can help you grow your audience. We’ll examine your chapter “persona” (the public face that you present in your marketing) and how that helps or hurts your efforts. We’ll also review marketing techniques and their effectiveness, including social media, email marketing, SEO/SEM, and more traditional forms.

From Carl: In the class, Paul could also look at a DVD of their chorus or quartet, or listen to their quartet in person, and then talk about where he saw them in the sphere, and why he thought that. (What are you doing most of the time? What are the “markers” of a particular part of the sphere that you are exhibiting? Note how a performer can move from one part of the sphere to another part, even within the same phrase, let alone same song.)

Target audience: Any and all of the attendees of HCNW. This is a way to make the material accessible to all, but not mix it in with the special track.

This could be one 90 minute session, or run it twice on Sunday morning, or make it an 180 minute session.

Do Less and Sing More
Is your chapter spending more time on non-singing “jobs” than on singing? Is it getting harder to find volunteers for those jobs? We’ll review ways in which you can increase member and audience satisfaction by doing less and singing more, and how to get off the “financial hamster wheel” so that decisions are not driven by chapter financial needs. We’ll look at free and low-cost resources available to aid with chapter operations, performance, marketing, and other needs, and we’ll review tools, services, and other solutions that you can begin using immediately. (Offered in Sessions 1 and 4)

Entertaining is Providing Nourishment to Your Guests
This class will help you see your role of performer as one who is a host for guests, and who provides musical and emotional nourishment for your guests. This class will include a discussion of how and why you should change your performance when the audience or the situation is different and show you myriad ways to become comfortable regardless of the occasion – for example, singing in a nursing home or at the fair is far different from singing on your annual show.
