COVID-19 Resources

NATS has been providing really outstanding leadership at the National Level this past week.  If you're not on social media, please know that most of the communications are being distributed that way, through Facebook

Some examples: 
They have in short order released the following special edition NATS Chat videos: 
NATS You Tube Channel can be found here for further video topics

In addition, members are doing an outstanding job sharing resources such as:
Digital Voice Pedagogy Resources

I know not everyone is on Facebook, so I wanted to take a moment to reach out to be sure that you're aware of these resources and to encourage us to connect in any way we can.  I will make an effort to share any livestream concerts on the NATS Michigan Like Page (for us, students, parents, community) and on our Michigan Chapter Members Only page (for teachers only).  I hope you'll do the same.  This is a strong community and I am grateful that we have one another to lean on and to learn from.

FAQs

With our auditions this fall being fully online, I wanted to address some FAQ's that may help us all prepare for our upcoming November 4th deadline: 1. New CCM categories: We have three-- High School, Collegiate and adult. Children can sing in any style, so no need for a separate category there 2. Judging Preferences: Please update your judging preferences in the system. Since we don't have to deal with room logistics we have a wonderful opportunity to align your assigned categories with your expertise! 3. Time limits: they still apply-- if a category has a 10 minute limit, we will listen to the songs in the order they are listed, and will stop after 10 minutes.

Announcing the FULLY ONLINE 2020 Fall Student Auditions (Deadline Nov. 4, 2020)

  Your NATS Michigan Board is thrilled to announce that this year's Fall Student Auditions are moving forward as a fully online event.   This is a fantastic opportunity for all of us and our students to showcase the work we've done in our new teaching & learning environments.   We have worked to make the categories as diverse and inclusive as possible.   After the successful addition of Youth and Adult Categories last year, we have now added two more new categories for CCM (Contemporary Commercial Music) singers! This year we will also invite students to enter in more than one category, and have lowered the fee structure both for teachers, and for students entering multiple categories. Online auditions will be conducted just like live auditions, judging assignments will be made accessible on the AuditionWare site. Judges will review, critique, score and complete comment sheets for each singer in their assigned category. These will be submitted through the AuditionWare site.
