To encourage NATS members to take advantage of the Find A Teacher membership benefit, NATS is offering you an incentive: FREE membership for one year to the winner of our Find a Teacher PROFILE contest.
To win, your NATS Teacher Profile must be complete and visible. Add your photo and contact information of course, but go one step further and make your profile memorable by writing an outstanding description of your teaching philosophy, your experience and education. Tell potential students about the success your former or current students enjoy. Then, let us know that you would like to participate in the contest by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org by midnight on September 15, 2011.
Submitted Teacher Profiles will be judged by Donald Simonson, NATS President, and Richard Sjoerdsma, Journal of Singing Editor in Chief, based on the overall aesthetic, use of features available, writing and grammar, effective pitch of services, and the quality of the hyperlinked studio website (if any).
The winning Find A Teacher profile will be selected by October 1, 2011 and announced on the NATS website, NATS News, InterNos, Journal of Singing, and on the NATS social media pages (Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn).
Don’t miss this chance to make your name known to new students. “NATS is involved in several emerging partnerships that will continue to drive even more traffic to our website, particularly the Find A Teacher page,” says Allen Henderson, Executive Director. “With over 7,000 members teaching over 150,000 students each year, those who share their profiles will continue to be the first ones who are sought out by those seeking voice instruction.” The Find A Teacher web pages rank second in hits to the NATS home page, with 25% more traffic than last year. With the popularity of singing competitions growing world-wide, there are more budding vocalists than ever looking for singing teachers.
