Welcome to AOTOS Teacher Development!

The object of AOTOS is to advance education in the teaching of singing. We do this through our conferences and area workshop days, but for many years we have also offered teacher training courses. As the only UK professional body specifically for voice teachers, we are able to draw on a body of knowledge from our whole membership, with experts at the highest level across all genres, ages and voice types: our philosophy is to encourage openness and the sharing of ideas.

Our new accredited course, Essentials, will be launched at the AGM in July 2021, but you can read more about it and book ahead by going to the Essentials tab. This course is aimed at people who are starting to teach singing or who have been teaching for up to four years.

We know that teaching can be quite isolating at times so a little encouragement and guidance can go a long way. If you have been teaching for less than two years and would like some help and support, Joy Naylor and Sarah Taylor would be very happy to hear from you. Please email them at joy.naylor@aotos.org.uk or sarah.taylor@aotos.org.uk to find out how you can connect online and enhance your teaching.

We have also set up an online support group for students who are starting to teach alongside developing their singing careers. Please contact Kathleen McKellar Ferguson for more information about how you can join that group: kathleen.mckellar.ferguson@aotos.org.uk
