This fun series highlights how a capella groups, made popular thanks to films such as Pitch Perfect and groups such as Pentatonix, must prepare to compete at top levels. The musical performances are entertaining, as are the various exercises, auditions, and other related activities. But also interesting is the musical and performance advice that coaches offer, which underscores the technical aspects of this kind of art form.

There’s some drama, mostly from the pressure of actual competitions. But it also comes from coaches making hard decisions when it comes to the good of the group, including pitting vocalists against each other to force them to work harder, secure solos, and play other roles in the group. But the focus on a strong work ethic, developing musical technique, and team collaboration make this a solid viewing option for tween and teen a capella fans.
