How It Works
Video Record Your Set
You record a video of your set. Make sure that the camera captures everyone in your group, and that sound levels are set appropriately. If you’d like, you can be in your performance outfits, but that’s not a must. Upload it to YouTube or Vimeo as an unlisted video and send us the link!
Detailed Group Coaching Session
One of our experienced a cappella pros will set up a video coaching session with you and your group. During this time, we will talk through your set in detail, providing you with actionable feedback, advice and techniques. Don’t have a webcam? No problem–we can set up a conference call, too!
Written Scores and Comments
Using the official Varsity Vocals® Judges Score Sheet, we will provide written comments and scores in every category. You will be able to refer back to this as you continue to improve your set and work towards victory!

The Choir Coach has no affiliation to or relationship with Varsity Vocals.
We also have the utmost concern for integrity. Therefore, no Choir Coach staff member who is also a Varsity Vocals judge will be allowed to assist a group that he or she may be scoring in an official ICCA or ICHSA event.
