IVTOM Dean Kaelin Teaching in Brazil

In IVTOM, we encourage all of our members to continue to learn, develop and grow as teachers, singers and those wishing to gain a greater understanding of the voice and vocal principles. We take great pride in the fact that our members seek out education and recognize its importance in their success.

There are four types of membership: Ivtom Accredited Teacher,  Accredited Track (those working toward Accredited status), Subscriber (those who want to enjoy the benefits of the Ivtom programs and education, but are not working toward becoming an Ivtom Accredited teacher) and Medical Professional (ENTs, SLPs, voice scientists, etc).

To become an Accredited Member, you will demonstrate your ability to sing and teach Mix and pass a Written Evaluation verifying your understanding of vocal function, physiology and acoustics. If you have limited teaching experience or are an experienced teacher who hasn’t studied Mix, the Accredited Track may be a good fit for you. Accredited Track members are working toward becoming an Accredited Ivtom Teacher. Subscribers pay a little higher fee to be able to access all of the education and programs that Ivtom offers, but do not have to meet any requirements to remain a member.
