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.
