We are tentatively planning some face-to-face events for the autumn, but in the mean time we are pleased to announce our third series of online events, so whether you'd benefit from knowing more about Trinity Digital Grades or have an interest in teaching children's voices or vocal rehabilitation, AOTOS always aims to bring you events focusing on issues of particular interest to singing teachers today.
Booking is open now for all of the Summer Series – an informative, inspiring series of National Webinars and members-only Zoom events, including our AGM on Sunday 11 July, which follows a Round Table on the future of Musical Theatre teaching in the UK, with an expert panel including AOTOS Honorary President, Mary King.

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 specialising in teaching any expression of song: from classical, through music theatre and folk, to jazz, rock and gospel; privately or in school, college or conservatoire.
We are delighted to be working in partnership with National Youth Choirs of Great Britain (NYCGB) for a third year with four singers from the NYCGB's Fellowship and four composers from their Young Composers' Scheme.
