- Are you an experienced singing teacher who wants to take your teaching to the next level and become the go-to teacher in your community?
- Do you want to know how our embodied instrument really works, and why some students respond best to certain exercises and vowel modifications while others respond best to a completely different approach?
- Do you believe that each student has their own way of learning, their unique voice, and their particular goals, and that one of the roles of the teacher is to deliver student-centered learning?
- Do you want a great tool box full of the scientifically proven best tools to help your students fully develop and unleash their voices?
- Do you want to know the 11 components to listen for when assessing a student singing a song?
- Do you want to know your strengths as a teacher and how to use those to become an even better teacher?
- Do you want to know how to get students through your studio door and how to achieve your teaching goals?
