Networking and the Independent Studio

One of the most important tasks for the independent studio

teacher is networking and building clientele. Click here to view

"As an independent teacher, it is often hard to get away from the teaching studio and therefore difficult to find ways to continue to learn and grow as a teacher. One great resource that I have recently discovered is the NATS Chat. Not only are the topics presented very relevant to my teaching and studio needs, but the chats are also very convenient to watch when I have the time since they are viewable both live and archived on YouTube. I highly recommend that you check them out and take advantage of this valuable resource!"

-Tiffany Owens, Independent teacher and Adjunct Professor at

Mt. Saint Joseph University, Cincinnati, Ohio

"Vocapedia is an incredible resource that I use all the time in my teaching. Vocapedia has links to videos and articles on anatomy, diction, pedagogy, repertoire, acoustics, and many other topics. I show every beginning student the video titled 3-D view of the diaphragm. Students can see what the diaphragm looks like, how it moves, and how the ribs and abdominals respond to that movement. This video alone has transformed how I talk about breathing

to my students. Check out Vocapedia for great information and inspiration!"
