Take Your Students' Vocal Skills to the Next Level!

Sweet Adelines International is committed to elevating women singers through education, performance, and competition in barbershop harmony and a cappella music. As part of that commitment, the organization has created the Young Women in Harmony (YWIH) Program. Designed for women age 25 and younger, YWIH provides music educators complimentary resources to incorporate barbershop harmony in their school's choral repertoire.

Why Barbershop?

This unique style of four-part a cappella harmony creates exciting, ringing chords and develops strong, confident singers.
Barbershop singing is a rewarding accomplishment for a vocal ensemble, and the curriculum to get started is absolutely free!
