  • Find your place in the national and international teaching community.

The Vocal Process Teacher Pathway draws on the latest research and vocal pedagogy from around the world. Acquire the latest information and practical applications to integrate into your existing teaching and coaching practice.

This professional teacher training pathway consists of four key stages:

  • 12 Hours to Better Singing Teaching

  • 12 More Hours to Better Singing Teaching
    open to all
  • The Accreditation Gateway
    open to all (recommended minimum 3 years teaching or choir leading)
