The Barbershop Quartet

"The songs that made America a singing nation!"

THE BARBERSHOP QUARTET is a professional fully featured music program containing all-time favorite Barbershop songs and an interactive multimedia history of barbershop singing in America.
We've recorded each voice (tenor, lead, baritone and bass) on a separate track, allowing you to listen to each part independently. Powerful multimedia features let you study the arrangements, hear the music, and sing along with a top barbershop quartet.

Made with the assistance of SPEBSQSA, the leading authority of Barbershop in America, this interactive program contains nearly an hour of high quality vocal music plus a fascinating history of barbershop quartets and 'the songs that made America a singing nation'.

Great performances, great notation, great music software!
With seamlessly integrated MultiTrack audio, MIDI, chord symbols, lyrics, and music notation, The Barbershop Quartet turns a typical sound card equipped PC into a vocal performance powerhouse.

Join the group!
The Multimedia features of The Barbershop Quartet give you the ability to mute or solo any audio track independently and study or sing the part yourself. On-screen notation shows you the music, lyrics and chord progressions as the 4-part arrangement scrolls by in perfect time with the quartet.  Unlike an ordinary CD recording, you can precisely control the audio mix by adjusting the volume and balance controls for each voice.
