I suggest a Crewsader.
Which is pretty much Human Bard 8 / Crusader 2 / Sublime Chord 1 / Jade Phoenix Mage 1. Sub for Song of Heart then pick up Song of the White Raven and Words of Creation to buff your music. The Bard Spell List, and White Raven Maneuvers, are great for leading, buffing, and aiding allies. You'll also have great Skills too.
