Penelope Price Jones,
AOTOS Chairman

Chairman’s Welcome.


If teaching voice is your passion, AOTOS is the Association for you!
We welcome anyone who wants to know more about how to encourage healthy voice use in whatever genre. New scientific research and articles about the holistic benefits of singing are regular news items these days. You will hear about these topics, together with a relish for new repertoire and tips for successful teaching at our National conferences in Autumn and Summer.

These events bring together voice teachers from all over the country. We give each other professional and inspirational support together with the understanding ear that only people in the same profession can bring. We welcome newly qualified teachers, and for those of us long in the job it is a vital refuelling exercise!

Our Area conferences tend to focus on one speaker or topic and happen in the Spring. In addition 2014 sees the development of local AOTOS ‘Pods’, so you are never far from a source of support.

As we head into our 40th year, 2015, AOTOS is re-emphasising its central role in training singing teachers. We have a well established Teacher Training course for practising teachers, now moved to Chetham’s School in Manchester. But look out for the ‘Pathways’ our route into the profession, guided by experienced AOTOS teachers!

So, Join Now, and I look forward to welcoming you into our Association!

Following our recent summer conference in Warwick, a delegate wrote:

Here is what some of our members say:

‘What a welcoming and friendly group of people! The workshops, masterclasses and talks were of real relevance and I came away feeling uplifted by the whole experience.’
