Music Advice Service BABS runs a Music Advice Service (MAS) for all barbershoppers. Mike Lofthouse, who runs this service, has a wealth of experience, contacts and advice that he would be happy to share. Furthermore, there are financial benefits as Mike can combine orders, splitting the costs of shipping and any other charges. Mike is also happy to act on your behalf when obtaining new music, which has many benefits as he often knows the ‘way in’ with copyright holders, knows how the system works and has access to a database of copyright information for musical works. If you are stuck, or even if you are not, it is worth contacting Mike to see if he can offer you advice or assistance. His email address is [email protected]. The advice available has been put together from a number of sources and people involved in BABS. In particular I would like to thank Rod Adams, George Badland Alan Hughes and Mike Coumans for their time in working on the many facets of getting music suitable for quartets and choruses. Mike also has a stock of Tombo Pitch Pipes, priced at £19.00 (including a sticker). They are available for purchase on-line by clicking here.
