The Quartet of Nations has an existing faculty which was organised on fairly informal lines a few years ago. Its members have been used to deliver local (regional) education events and they form part of a coaching directory. The newly established Education Steering Group has decided to formalise a faculty to provide education in the art of barbershop singing to Sweet Adelines International members in the UK and the Netherlands.
