Join the UK’s Association of Teachers of Singing

JOIN AOTOS

The Association of Teachers of Singing is the UK’s only singing teachers’ association.

We welcome anyone who teaches singing – at home, school, college of further education, music conservatoire; with a choir, youth group, amateur dramatic society, professional organisation – whatever your experience or qualifications. Students are welcome. We also offer corporate membership for organisations.

Any voice teacher who is serious about the quality of their teaching skills, who is open to the possibility of extending their knowledge, and who is willing to listen to the opinions and experiences of others, should join AOTOS.
