"I have been to many voice conferences over the years, but none come close to the 2014 Ivtom conference in Denver. Never before was I dazzled by every single presenter and presentation, learned so much from my colleagues even after 20 years of teaching experience, and felt such a sense of community between attendees and presenters, all in pursuit of teaching the mix. It wasn't about any of the people attending or presenting; it was all about the methodology and the voice, without egos, without drama, just knowledge. And to keep everyone glued to a chair for eight hours a day without feeling restless or bored is quite an achievement! It was just brilliant." - Rocio Guitard, Ivtom Mentor Program Director

"The amount of ongoing education that is offered in this organization compared to the amount of money paid to receive it is beyond value. I learned more in one day at the 2013 U.S. Conference on how to teach more effectively than I ever did in my semester of graduate vocal pedagogy. Thank you IVTOM for offering these valuable tools and this valuable support." - Danielle Forbush, Ivtom Accredited Teacher

Upcoming Conferences

IVTOM's Teacher Conferences offer a unique opportunity to spend three days immersed in education for yourself. You will observe Mentors teaching actual lessons and have the opportunity to ask questions "in the moment"; hear presentations by M.D.s and vocologists that are prepared especially for voice teachers on the most current medical and science findings related to the voice; and attend workshops on the business of teaching, marketing your studio, and much, much more. Most importantly, you'll spend three days with other teachers who are doing exactly what you do and who are committed to excellence in their work. From beginners to highly-experienced teachers, it doesn't get better than this!

If you've attended an Ivtom Conference at any point, you'll know that they have all been superb.  This one is going to top all of the others.  We put together a "dream list" of faculty and presenters, sent invitations, and were surprised and thrilled when every invitee accepted.  What this means for you is four days of teacher training and presentations, with an unparalleled group of presenters and faculty, all in the beautiful city of Atlanta!

Ivtom's goal is to create the highest quality voice teacher education and to make it affordable.  There are those who believe that high quality has to be very costly.  We disagree with that.
