The entire program can be done ONLINE and
only costs the same as taking regular voice lessons…
or even less!

Never taught voice lessons before? That's ok! Every voice teacher who ever taught started by teaching his/her first voice student. You just need training on how to teach, and (if you've never taught before) how to begin teaching! Part of the program is geared toward helping you build your number of students to the amount you want, whatever that number is for you. There are three teacher levels within the program.
