The National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS) and NATS vocal wellness coordinator Dr. Wendy LeBorgne have launched a survey today to study the long-term impacts of COVID-19 on singing teachers. “We urge anyone teaching singing, including choral directors and k-12 music teachers, who has contracted COVID-19 to participate and complete the anonymous survey so that we can begin to identify long term impacts of the virus on the physical and vocal performance of singing teachers,” says Allen Henderson, executive director of NATS. The survey is available at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/SingingteachersCOVID19study. Please complete this anonymous survey if you have contracted COVID-19 and share with other singing teachers you know.
"NATS continues to be at the forefront of providing relevant and timely resources to the singing world during this time. We also plan to study other segments of the industry in the future," says Henderson. NATS has partnered with a variety of other professional associations and organizations to serve the singing community throughout the pandemic with a series of highly viewed webinars, NATS Chat conversations, and a highly successful virtual national conference in June, 2020.
