- 3 months free BAST membership for ongoing education and support
- Notifications for ongoing educational events and resources
- A minimum of 3 - 5 years of professional experience as a singer/performer. Think about it if you don't have much singing performance experience it will be hard to convince someone that you know enough to help them become a singer.
- Music theory qualifications or Grade 5 minimum knowledge recommended. Knowledge is power.
- Keyboard skills also recommended but not compulsory. It is highly recommended you consider piano lessons if you have no keyboard experience. Being able to play and control scales, plonk out a melody or a set of chords goes a long way in this game. We do cover basic scale building and piano fingering in the course.
I just wanted to say thank you for the BAST course. I learnt so much and feel much more confident with my group singing classes and think it was well worth the investment.

When's the next course? I learned so much - I want to keep moving forward. You helped me discover tools that will move my students forward even more quickly.

The BAST course couldn't have been anymore useful. I had had no previous teaching experience and this course gave me the confidence to go out and get a job teaching. The techniques delivered were brilliant and all of my students love the method of teaching, which I have BAST to thank for! Would highly recommend it to anyone!

When & Where
Hello, my name is Line (pron Lyn) Hilton.
I am a singing teacher and performing arts medicine specialist dedicated to helping performers sing and perform optimally.
Over the last 15 years of teaching I have been fortunate to have shared so many journeys helping singers to gain vocal freedom and blessed to have made many good friends along the way. Without a doubt, my students are my greatest teachers.
I originally trained as a Registered Nurse eventually transfering fulltime into music and singing when I realised that I couldn't be without it. In 2000 I graduated from the Western Australian Academy of Perfoming Arts (WAAPA) with a B.Mus Ed(Jazz). Then I brought the two careers into one through a MSc in Performing Arts Medicine from University College London.
Between 2008-11 I was the head of the vocal department of the Academy of Contemporary Music in Guildford. I belong to an international association of highly trained singing teachers called Vocology in Practice (ViP) and a voting member of the Pan American Vocology Association. Back when I was a performer I ran my own jazz bands, sung in big band settings, contemporary jazz choirs and even trod the boards in musical theatre and light opera. These days I focus on teaching , which I love to do with a passion.
WHAT I DO
In private one2one sessions I pull on my varied experience and training to help singers with vocal technique, vocal health, performance and teaching.
Throughout the year I run singing courses such as:
- singing teacher training
- performance mind-set
- performance skills
I also publish a digital magazine for singers called iSing. This is an AMAZING resource for anyone serious about singing. Find out how to download issue 1 for free by going to the website - www.isingmag.com
