COACHING OF CHOIRS OR ENSEMBLES
For choirs and ensembles which are in need of a fresh look from the outside we offer the possibility of coaching. This coaching can for example relate to the finishing touches of a program, a new style or getting a nice balance within a group.
Make your questions and wishes known to us, and we will try to offer you a project adjusted to those wishes.
