Considering a United Sound chapter at your school? Take a few moments to watch this video about First Experiences from the teacher's perspective. With Mr. Josh Thye.

After registration, your next step will be to find the rest of your team! If you are a professor, you're looking for two students leaders to act as co-presidents of your chapter. Ideally, an older person and a younger person to facilitate torch-passing.

If you are a student, you'll need to find a faculty sponsor before we can move very far. In some cases, this person doesn't attend a single rehearsal, but you will need them to gain institutional approval for your chapter, reserve rehearsal space, and most importantly, coordinate with an ensemble for performances. Because United Sound is a performance based club, the faculty sponsor is usually the director or assistant director of an ensemble.
