Future developments in Teacher Training at AOTOS

In response to extensive consultation with faculty and past students we are continuing to mingle the experienced and new teacher strands of the course. Both sets of participants have enjoyed working with each other and certainly the atmosphere in the past couple of years has been most positive and cooperative.

I am very grateful to Margaret Aronson and Heidi Pegler for their help in developing the course to introduce new teachers to the profession. We hope we have put together a week to show the excitement and challenges of teaching singing and we hope to welcome you to the course in 2012.

Please contact me with any further questions or concerns that you may have.
