Coastal Sound Artistic Team has two goals: to make music learning a joyful experience, and to achieve musical excellence and emotional connection. We divide singers into levels based on age and experience. All of the choral groups at Coastal Sound offer learner-centered instruction by professional choral music educators, vocal coaches and conductors to best meet the musical, intellectual and social needs of singers. If you aren’t sure what we do, please watch our concert videos here.
