Who doesn’t love a massage? It’s a nice thing to do for ourselves every once in a while, but have you ever thought about how it can be a real part of caring for the health of your voice?…
Since IVA’s initial launch on April 29, just one short month ago, over 140 teachers with previous voice teacher training experience have joined IVA - a number that has already surpassed our 2013 expectations and continues to grow almost every day! Now we are excited to welcome brand-new teachers to our program. Starting tomorrow, June 1, 2013, applications will open for teachers with no previous experience.
Who is a “Teacher with no Previous Experience?”
If you are a singer currently studying with an IVA instructor and now you would like to learn how to teach this technique to others, you probably qualify. Or, if you already are a voice teacher with no previous training in a “mix” technique complementary to IVA, you also could be a candidate.
I believe becoming a voice teacher is a calling, not just a job or a career. Singing is a specifically human activity that can be both exalting and therapeutic. It can bring joy and healing to the singer and the listener. So if I somehow can help a person get past their insecurities and enjoy their voice more, I am adding to their life and to the lives around them.
Do you feel this calling, too? Do you find yourself trying to help others with their singing, often with mixed results? Do you want a systematic, step-by-step approach to the voice that takes a student from where they are and guides them toward where they want to be? If this describes you, then we would love to see you apply to the IVA Student Teacher program.
To get started download the Student Teacher Manual. Once you read the manual and the prerequisites for Teachers with No Previous Experience, apply now and fill out the application. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
