The Coaching Connection
Who couldn't use some outside help? Whether you want a coach for your quartet or chorus, need some administrative assistance, want to work with an expert on a show or performance package, having that "fifth ear" around is a huge help! Visit our Coaching Connection page to see a list of our Regional Faculty and resumes of available coaches (both inside and outside our Region). Plus, we have a calendar of coaching events going on in the region that are open to the public! You can learn a lot just by watching someone else get coached!
