AOTOS conference programmes offer unique benefits. \n\nInsight into different approaches from some of the most distinguished teachers of singing worldwide\nUnderstanding the demands of the profession\nPresentations by international teachers\, artists and voice specialists of all kinds\nMeeting colleagues from all over the world\nDiscovering opportunities to develop your career\n\nConferences also provide a very valuable opportunity – especially for new and less experienced teachers – to share ideas and experiences\, and to encourage each other. Indeed one of the original raisons d’être of AOTOS when it was founded by Dr W.H. Swinburne in 1975 was to address the problem of lack of communication between singing teachers. He is quoted as having said: ‘Why do instrumentalists talk about their techniques\, and singers have their own methods\, never discussing anything?’. We hope that over the years AOTOS has helped in some way to dispel this attitude. \nAt our conferences we listen to talks from very learned people in our professions. We also have the opportunity to bring our own difficulties and questions\, and to seek comments on these from our colleagues either in open forum\, or simply by just chatting amongst ourselves in the extended meal breaks\, and – in the case of the summer conference – in the evenings\, often in the bar \nSummer Conference 2019: Refresh\, recharge\, revitalise!\nWays to move forward with your singing teaching \n \nAbout the event\nWhat does it mean to be a singing teacher in 2019?

The 5 Music Rights in Action!\nThe IMC World Forum on Music is conceived as an influential global platform for sharing knowledge about music and society in the 21st century\, a platform that explores a variety of topics from different perspectives: cultural\, political and economic. \nThe topics go beyond the aesthetic aspects of music production and address the mechanisms that promote or inhibit the active participation of people in cultural experiences. \nA non-commercial initiative\, the forum allows government officials\, private sector leaders\, operators\, activists\, academics and practitioners to engage in high-level interdisciplinary discussions and brainstorm together on guidelines for action.\nFor the 6th edition of the Forum in 2019\, the members of the IMC wished this edition to be held in Paris in honour of the 70th anniversary of the organization. \nThis year’s Forum will once again be an important opportunity for IMC members to meet and engage with colleagues from other areas to broaden their horizons and find inspiration for new projects\, even partners for their implementation. \nIn addition to members of IMC global network\, the Forum will also be open to a broad audience of all those who work in music and those who are able to make decisions for better conditions in which music is celebrated – created\, interpreted\, disseminated\, transmitted and learned\, preserved\, exchanged etc.\, all over the world. \nThe General Assembly of the IMC\, Annual Meeting of the EMC and other regional meetings will take place on the sidelines of the Forum\, on September 27 and 28. \n URL: LOCATION:La Bellevilloise\, 19-21 Rue Boyer\, Paris\, 75020\, France CATEGORIES:Conferences,Trade exhibitions ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg: GEO:48.868241;2.3922268 X-APPLE-STRUCTURED-LOCATION;VALUE=URI;X-ADDRESS=La Bellevilloise 19-21 Rue Boyer Paris 75020 France;X-APPLE-RADIUS=500;X-TITLE=19-21 Rue Boyer:geo:2.3922268,48.868241 END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID="Europe/London":20191023T080000 DTEND;TZID="Europe/London":20191026T170000 DTSTAMP:20190716T211515 CREATED:20190415T215755Z LAST-MODIFIED:20190529T135548Z SUMMARY:Performers(') Present International Artistic Research Symposium: Telling Stories DESCRIPTION:About Performers(‘) Present\nNarratives – whether historical\, political\, or musical; whether fact or fiction – are inextricably bound to the ways we experience the world\, and the art that translates these experiences. \nIn the decade since we began hosting the triennial Performers(‘) Present symposium\, artistic research has been undergoing rapid and ground-shifting transformations\, with the performer’s voice becoming ever more present. As with our previous symposia\, Telling Stories seeks to address and evolve the kaleidoscopic issues facing 21st-century performers\, as they reflect on their practice in the context of significant shifts in politics\, communications and technology\, and performance practice. \nJoin us and the artistic research community at the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music from 23 – 26 October 2019\, as we reflect on the power of music narratives and celebrate their narrators in Performers(‘) Present 2019: Telling Stories. \n\nTelling stories\nAs musicians and performer-scholars\, we tell stories. Whether in communicating through a musical narrative\, through a performative act\, or researching and reflecting upon the process of practising and concertising\, the story is the central medium. Oxford tells us that the definitions of ‘story’ include: an account of imaginary or real people and events told for entertainment; a false statement or lie; an account of past events in someone’s life or in the development of something; a particular person’s representation of the facts of a matter; the facts about the present situation. \nSince the previous Performers(‘) Present festival-symposium in 2016\, social and political upheavals worldwide have so impacted daily discourse that it has become difficult to distinguish objective truths from alternative facts. In an age where social media and its trends have had profound impacts on how we process the world as performing artists and artistic researchers\, it seems all the more vital to probe the idea of telling stories – as a possible means of distorting discourse\, but also as a beautiful conceit of great art that is vital for the well-being of our musical and cultural orbits. \nThe 2019 Performers(‘) Present symposium will offer space to explore the art of presenting music in performance in relation to our contemporary world\, from the perspectives of performer\, producer\, audience\, and within the broader cultural context. \nWhat story will you tell? \n URL: LOCATION:Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music\, 3 Conservatory Drive\, Singapore\, 117376\, Singapore CATEGORIES:Asia,Conferences,International ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg: END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID="Europe/London":20191109T090000 DTEND;TZID="Europe/London":20191109T170000 DTSTAMP:20190716T211515 CREATED:20190516T132703Z LAST-MODIFIED:20190529T135548Z SUMMARY:ABRSM Teacher Conference DESCRIPTION:This is a conference for all types of music teacher\, whatever you teach.
