Certified Master Teacher (CMT) Online Prep Program
Overview: The CMT-OPP is a 26 week, online program for students of Estill Voice Training around the world who are ready to begin the journey toward becoming a Certified Master Teacher*. The course begins this September and will finish in May 2013.
How it will work:
Part One (13 weeks), which will be focused on the Figures, will meet weekly from September 18 to December 18 and Part Two (13 weeks), focused on the Qualities, will be meet weekly from January to May 2013 (exact dates TBD).
We will meet, via Google Hangouts on Tuesdays (from 12:30 to 1:45pm EST) for our weekly class.
You can learn more about Google Hangouts here: http://www.google.com/+/learnmore/hangouts/
Each week there will be presentations from both Tom and Robert on the Figues and Qualities and teaching from the Estill point of view. You will learn what is expected in terms of videos and recordings. There will also be time for coaching and discussion.
The group is limited to 8 students only, so reserve you spot asap! (We can add a second section if enrollment exceeds 8 students.)
The course is designed to accommodate students a different levels of certification readiness. I can be taken as a prep course with no pressure to test until the course is completed. More ambitious students can plan to take the testing DURING the time of the course. This track would be prepared to take the written exam and the Figure Portion of the VoicePrint exam between the two semesters. (The instructors will proctor the written exam and facilitate your taking the VoicePrint Portion with another CCI). The Qualities portion of the VoicePrint exam can be taken by the middle of the second semester (with another CCI). If a student passes the exams at these times the teaching videos submitted during the second half of the second semester WILL be eligible to count toward teacher observation. This will save you time and travel expenses when completing the final observation portion of the certification.
What you get (each week):
♦ Over an hour interactive online class time
♦ 45-1 hour of personal evaluation and feedback on your teaching videos
♦ 30 minutes of feedback and instruction on your VoicePrint recordings
♦ Unlimited Email Access to BOTH instructors (with 24hr. response guarantee)
What makes this course special:
♦ you will have the opportunity to work closely and consistently with two talented and experienced Estill CCIs
the course will provide a structured learning environment for you to tackle the diverse requirements of certification
♦ you will have an intimate group of peers to work with, learn from and grow with via a Private FaceBook group.
