In the dynamic world of singing, versatility is key. Singers today often find themselves developing portfolio careers, where they juggle multiple roles to thrive. As part of this journey, many singers naturally incorporate teaching into their skill set, creating an additional stream of income. Teaching not only provides a stable financial foundation but also imparts a sense of fulfillment by passing on knowledge and inspiring the next generation of vocalists. At BAST Training, we understand the unique demands of this portfolio approach, and our mission is to equip singers with the tools they need to excel as singing teachers.
In the ever-evolving world of singing and education, we’re here to provide you with the tools, knowledge, and community you need to excel. Whether you’re just starting out or seeking to elevate your teaching skills, BAST Training has something for you.
