"The Gold Standard for CCM Training"
"CCM Institute courses are the most applicable and practical courses I have attended for today's singing teacher's needs. The faculty are genuinely interested in helping teachers and students get more out of the courses and the experience than expected, even one-on-one assistance when needed. I'll be returning as often as possible!
"Every voice teacher needs to take the courses offered by the CCM Institute to stay current and fresh in their teaching style and pedagogy. The faculty are brilliant teachers and researchers."
"The collective wisdom of the CCM Institute is incredible. Even online, the camaraderie and hospitality was readily apparent. I am looking forward to attending again, and confident that the CCM staff can make it a valuable experience in any format!"
