Student Membership

NATS is dedicated to the development of lifelong learning beginning at the student level and continuing through professional employment. It is in this spirit that NATS has a student membership category available. Student members receive most of the same benefits as other membership types; however, the Journal of Singing is limited to digital only, and they may not hold a national office or participate in student auditions.

Student NATS (SNATS) Chapters

In addition to being involved with a local NATS chapter, Student NATS members may also affiliate with a local Student NATS (SNATS) chapter, an organization of students that can hold meetings, workshops, and discussion groups to learn more about all aspects of singing. Chapters are formed at the college, university, conservatory or independent teacher level.
