MatchMySound Partners with GIA Publications and ACDA to Launch Online Singing Solution for Choirs


MatchMySound, along with GIA Publications and American Choral Directors Association (ACDA), announced today the launch of My Choral Coach, an integrated music creation platform that provides instant feedback and guided practice for choral directors and their singers.

With My Choral Coach, choral members can sing their part of a piece of music into their computer and the platform will give them real-time feedback on their pitch, rhythm, and tempo. Choral directors can then assess progress and offer input via the messaging component.

“When you combine our technology with the strength and resources of GIA and ACDA, choral groups will have an engaging solution that will keep them making music during this difficult time,” said David Smolover, CEO of Accelerando, which owns MatchMySound. “Our team has designed an easy-to-use platform that works for all choirs, regardless of age or proficiency.”

My Choral Coach will also enable choral groups to create virtual choirs, in which individual singers will record their part in a video, and choral directors can then edit those files into an overall mix. ACDA Executive Director Tim Sharp notes: “While the result isn’t a substitute for in-person choirs, My Choral Coach allows us to hear each singer individually, and to coach musicians on how they fit into the overall performance, even when they can’t hear their fellow singers.”

My Choral Coach will expand the offering in June to include mobile apps for iOS and Android. Choral directors interested in using My Choral Coach for their choral groups can visit or email for more information on how to implement this new music creation, performance, and feedback platform.
