  • A bunch of new friends with similar interests!
  • 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.
Please note: Once you have booked your place, you will be asked a series of questions about your experience & qualifications to give us an idea of your background. Your trainer may contact you to discuss the course in more detail and to find out more about you. If you wish to talk to someone before booking please email a to request a call.

“I can’t recommend this BAST course enough.  If you’re seriously thinking of becoming a singing teacher/vocal coach or even if you already are but want to improve then this is the course for you.  It begins with basic anatomy and goes right through to in-depth voice technique, style and piano skills.  Not only that, it assists in marketing and strategy in becoming a professional singing teacher.  A priceless aid taught by elite industry professionals in my opinion!”
