Every year The National Association of Teachers of Singing conducts online National Student Auditions
. The first step for students wishing to qualify for these auditions is to place in the top-5 for their age Category in their Region. In order to facilitate this process, the New England Region holds online Student Auditions every year. All NATS Members in the New England Region are eligible to submit their students for this opportunity! Your students will receive Judges feedback on all of their video submissions - this is a great opportunity to discuss vocal growth with your students whether they make it to the National Round or not!
