Singers home study courses and web based training programs have become very popular in recent years and although we believe they cannot replace face to face tuition, some programs are excellent when used in conjunction with a teacher. To help sift out the good from the bad, we have started to collate courses that have been created by qualified teachers whose credentials can be checked with the awarding body or who are members of a recognised organisation (like NATS or ATOS). Also browse the Instruction and Educational books and audio books for singers.
