Learn to sing Barbershop Harmony Course – Hosted by Major Oak Chorus

Every Tuesday from 25 September – 30 October
Carlton Junior Academy, Foxhill Road, Carlton NG4 1QT

We are delighted to announce that the chorus is to host a free 6-week course for men singers.

Whether you sing in a choir, ensemble, sing karaoke or you are an accomplished solo singer this course may spice things up by offering a new challenge. It will also be ideal for those lapsed singers who want to return to singing.

‘Barbershop’ is four part acapella close harmony. It’s not all straw boaters and waistcoats. It can be demanding but the exhilaration experienced when everything locks and rings is something that has to be experienced to appreciate.

The start of the course will look at what ‘Barbershop’ harmony is, the four voice parts, how we use the music score (Don’t worry if you can’t read music, not many of our members can!). You will be allocated a voice part and sing some simple harmonies. You will be given access to some music scores and teaching tracks. The main body of the course will be about some fun exercises and learning a couple of songs in the Barbershop style. Advice and tuition on the style will be incorporated in the song learning. At the conclusion you will be able to perform both songs competently within the chorus. To find out more or to enrol call 07957 838387 or email

If there are women that would be interested in having a go at singing ‘Barbershop’ we recommend you contact our ‘Sister’ chorus at

Carlton Male Voice Choir

CMVC is a long established TTBB choir based in Carlton, Nottingham with nearly 100 singing members.

Our choir is always looking to welcome new members of all ages and vocal ranges to join our ranks. Under the leadership of our Musical Director, Ian Watts, the choir is endeavouring to become recognised as outstanding and we are particularly seeking to strengthen our Second Tenor/Tenor 2 section.

Many of our choir members, including myself, also belong to mixed choirs and find the diversity of singing experience extremely complementary and enjoyable.

New singers would be very welcome to just come along to one of our Wednesday evening practice sessions to see and hear what we are all about.

This invitation does not extend solely to Tenor 2s. We would welcome new members of all vocal ranges.
