Ivor Flint, AOTOS Chair

Welcome to the Association of Teachers of Singing. For over forty years, AOTOS has developed a thriving, vibrant community of singing teachers who meet together regularly at national conferences, area development days and also through our local network of Pods.

Teaching, learning, and sharing best practice is at the heart of our organisation and is vital in keeping teachers up to date, informed and engaged in practical application of the advancing developments in voice science and vocal pedagogy.

Through our regular events, magazine, website and social media, you can keep up with contemporary thinking and participate actively in a supportive and informative network of professional singing teachers.

AOTOS incorporates all styles and genres of singing from classical to rock, music theatre to folk and pop, but at the centre is the understanding, nurturing and development of healthy singing for all.

AOTOS supports those teaching one to one, in small groups or large classes, private teachers, and visiting music teachers in schools, colleges, institutes of higher education and conservatoires. We aim to share our information, experience and ideas from our wide membership base so that we can enhance and improve teaching for all.

Teaching and learning is at the heart of our organisation and we strive to continually develop best practice. For new teachers, we offer focused, bespoke training through our teacher training and mentoring programmes.For singing teachers with four or more years of teaching experience, we invite you to engage actively with our Advanced Professional Development Course – a wonderful opportunity to re-charge energy and refresh ideas and, from personal experience, come away with a real boost to knowledge and expertise.

Join us now and become part of a vibrant, welcoming, engaging professional organisation. I very much look forward to meeting you at our next event.
