Welcome to the Region 13 Coaching Connection page! Coaching is an important part of each chorus and quartet's growth and development. Finding the right coach for your current level and your goals is key. The Coaching Connection is a resource for our Region 13 members to use in finding the right match to continue their journey to the next level.
This segment of the Regional website is divided into three parts: a list of coaches that link to their information, dates of coaching, and supporting resources.
List of coaches: It is our goal to support those Region 13 members who do coaching but it is also helpful to know which "out of region" coaches come to our area from time to time. Please contact these coaches directly to find out more detail about their services and availability. If you would like to have someone added to this list, please send their contact information to Bonnie Willis, Director Coordinator. Click here to go to our Coaches webpage.
Coaching calendar: Sometimes it's just as helpful to watch someone else be coached, plus it allows you to see if their techniques and style might fit with your ensemble, and this list will indicate when a coaching session is open to visitors. Also, you might want to "piggy back" onto another groups coaching sessions when the coach is near you to work with another group. To add your dates to this calendar, send your information to Bonnie Willis, Director Coordinator. Scheduled coaching sessions are listed below.
Resources: We will add documents and resources to this page, as well, to help you use your time and energy wisely as you invest in your plan for skill building and growth. If you have a resource that would be helpful, please send it to Bonnie, Director Coordinator. You can find the coaching resources in the right-hand sidebar.
The dates below are open coaching sessions for interested visitors. Please remember to be courteous at these sessions, which are hard-working rehearsals for the groups involved! Location and times are not listed, so you will need to visit the chorus' website formore information.
