The NATS Intern Program is an exciting and innovative venture that seeks to pair experienced and recognized master teachers with talented early career members of NATS. Each voice intern teaches lessons to two students and performs in master classes under the supervision of a master teacher. Collaborative piano interns accompany lessons, perform in master classes, and other sessions as appropriate, and coach students under the supervision of the collaborative piano master teacher.
A voice intern applicant must be a member of NATS (full or associate) in good standing with no more than five years of full-time teaching or the part-time equivalent. Working as a graduate teaching assistant does not count towards the five-year limit. Holding a Master's Degree or higher is preferable but not required.
Collaborative Piano Interns
Preference will be given to applicants who are members of NATS (full or associate) in good standing, though non-members may apply with the understanding that all collaborative piano interns chosen will join NATS. Applicants should be at the beginning of their careers with no more than approximately five years of full-time collaborative work/teaching/coaching or the part-time equivalent. Working as a graduate teaching assistant does not count towards the five-year guideline. Holding a Master's Degree or higher is preferable but not required.
