There is a growing demand for CVT Teachers. More and more singers have found Complete Vocal Technique valuable in working on their singing challenges, and in solving vocal issues. CVT is spreading fast and is now widely used in Northern Europe. With 10 language versions of the book more areas will follow.
We want to make sure that singers around the world get access to the best teachers of the highest professional level. With more and more people teaching CVT around the world, it is important to make clear distinctions between who are Authorised CVT Teachers and who are not. By choosing an Authorised CVT Teacher you are choosing a teacher that is the best qualified to teach CVT and is updated with the latest research within voice science, practical technique, and the newest discoveries within pedagogics.
An Authorised CVT Teacher has completed the 3-year Singer/Teacher Diploma Course at Complete Vocal Institute (CVI) in Copenhagen, and has thereby qualified professionally as a singer and as a teacher and has proven to be capable of demonstrating and teaching according to the techniques, philosophy, and teaching method of Complete Vocal Technique.
An Authorised CVT Teacher is expected to update regularly theoretically and practically according to latest research within voice science, practical technique, and the newest discoveries within pedagogics. To keep the authorisation the teacher must reauthorise every third year to make sure s/he is properly updated at all times.
To provide as clear and correct information as possible, all Authorised CVT Teachers are expected on their website, in social media, and in all other marketing material to inform correctly about their CVT qualifications. Only Authorised CVT Teachers are allowed to use the right label.
CVT is spreading fast
Many singers find Complete Vocal Technique valuable in working on their singing challenges, and with 10 language versions of the book and many courses available, CVT is spreading fast. CVT is used by voice professionals around the world and is now the fastest growing singing technique method in Europe.
The increasing demand for CVT calls for teachers who have been thouroghly trained and master the techniques as well as the teaching method. This training is done at Complete Vocal Institute and the singers/teachers who complete it receive authorisation in teaching CVT. Today about 528 Authorised CVT Teachers from 33 Nations are teaching in 38 countries in Europe, US and Middle East.
Teachers without proper training in teaching CVT
As the demand for CVT grows some teachers unfortunately feel tempted to announce that they can teach CVT even though they have never had any official training in teaching CVT. Such teachers can cause problems if they do not teach CVT correctly.
We want to make sure that singers around the world get access to the best CVT teachers of the highest professional level. In order to do so it is important that we make clear distinctions between who are Authorised CVT Teachers, and who might have followed other courses at CVI, or learned about CVT in another way, or maybe even not at all. There is a huge difference between being taught CVT as a singer, and being trained in teaching CVT at the 3-year Singer/Teacher Diploma Course at Complete Vocal Institute. We are serious about the three years of study it takes to become an Authorised CVT Teacher – there is a lot to learn!
Teachers without authorisation from Complete Vocal Institute might be brilliant in many ways, but they are not properly trained in teaching CVT and not updated with the newest CVT techniques. At CVI we do not know what these teachers are teaching and how. Therefore we cannot vouch for them.
