The NATS Intern Program is an exciting and innovative venture that seeks to pair experienced and recognized master teachers of voice with talented young members of NATS. Within a format designed to promote the dynamic exchange of ideas and techniques, the goal is to improve substantially the studio teaching skills of these promising young teachers.
Each intern will teach four lessons to two students (preferably one male and one female) and perform in a master class under the supervision of a master teacher. In addition, the master teachers, a vocal literature liaison, and special guests will present special lectures and demonstrations.
The master teachers will include collegiate and independent studio teachers who specialize in 'classical' singing, in 'non-classical' styles, and who have experience in the needs of the private studio. Interns will be assigned to work with the master teacher in the area of the Interns' area of specialization. Independent studio teachers are strongly urged to apply.
Interns chosen will be responsible for their travel expenses, though they may request financial assistance from their NATS chapters or regions as well as from their institutions of employment. NATS, Inc. and the NATS Foundation provide tuition, housing, and meals.
