AOTOS – the Association of Teachers of Singing

AOTOS was founded in 1975 to promote a wider understanding of all aspects of the teaching of singing. We create opportunities which bring together teachers from all over the world. 

All AOTOS activities and services are open to members teaching any expression of song: from classical, through music theatre and folk, to jazz, rock and gospel; privately or in school, college or conservatoire.

Our next AOTOS Zoom event: Music Festivals and Adjudicating Sunday 26 June
