Professional Development

In addition to the various events hosted by the Central Coast Section, virtual professional development opportunities are available here.


The Sonata is our newsletter, with three editions each year: Exposition, Development, and Recapitulation. Each edition contains articles written by CCS members. Previous editions of the Sonata are archived here. If you have an article you would like to submit for a future edition of the Sonata, contact the current Sonata editor, Dan Lingenfelter.


These forums were created to facilitate professional communication between music educators in our section.  Our discussion forums are currently open to anyone who would like to contribute to the discussion. Simply register to join discussions. If you are having difficulties with registration or logging in, contact the webmaster, Maria Carney.


Links to professional organizations relevant to Central Coast Section members, including NAfME, CMEA, and others are available here.
