Guest panelist David Ostwald joined moderator Kari Ragan on Sunday, March 10, for NATS Chat. Ostwald is the author of "Acting for Singers: Creating Believable Singing Characters" and has directed more than 170 productions of plays and operas. Ostwald has also maintained an active teaching career by specializing in teaching acting to singers.
NATS Chats are live online real-time discussions for voice teachers and singers. Topics vary widely and have included classical and CCM (Contemporary Commercial Music) vocal technique, vocal repertoire, teaching strategies, business strategies for private studio teachers, resources for university teachers, and arts advocacy. Guests have included prominent teachers, authors, composers, and artists.
NATS Chats are now powered by Coveritlive. Participants can enter the chat room and participate by asking questions or simply observing the dialogue with others. All visitors are encouraged to announce their presence with a greeting to the moderator, who will take questions online and introduce them at an appropriate time during the chat.
NATS Chats are usually held the first Sunday of each month of the academic year (except on holiday weekends, a summer hiatus June-August) at 10-11 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.
