What our Teacher Training Includes
6 Weeks of Class Observation
Teachers pick 6 classes to observe out of our 7 sections of class throughout their 6 weeks of Teacher Training (dates flexible).
In each class, we explore:
Incorporating the freeing Meisner technique into song
Tools that allow singers to rely on their acquired vocal techniques and trust in their bodies' abilities
Mindset shifts that move singers away from stifling self consciousness to truthful presence
Our 12 Week Online Course
Teachers receive a year's worth of access to our Online Course, which consists of 12 weekly video lessons and an accompanying workbook and practice log.
The course covers our curriculum including:
Research & tools that allow singers to trust themselves as both musical technicians & impulsive actors
In-depth explanations of the Meisner technique
Steps to combine the challenging task of singing with mastery while honoring spontaneity
3 Individual Coachings with Jillian Paige
Teachers meet biweekly with MiM founder Jillian to discuss what they observed in class, teaching strategies, applications for their own studios, and go over four weeks of the Online Course at a time.
Coaching emphases are dependent on each individual's needs & range from:
Business strategy and studio growth
Psychosomatic tools and application of the Meisner technique
What our Teachers Say
"I just finished MiM's 6 Week Teacher Training Program and I have to say, it was a real eye-opening experience.
To see how Jillian has implemented using Meisner’s foundational work…it was wonderful to see how, the moment before someone was starting to sing, they lead into their song with such a full, rich life, it was really great to watch. Everybody who signs up for this program is very, very fortunate.”
"I am so glad I did the Meisner in Music Teacher Training.
Not only have I learned so much from observing Jillian teach her technique, but Jillian also worked with me one on one to help me figure out my own unique style of teaching, pinpointed with me what my goals as an artist and entrepreneur would be, and, most of all, became such a supportive mentor and friend to me. If you're a person who is looking to start their own business, Jillian is an incredible resource! I am so grateful for my time with her and MiM."
"In all of my class observations throughout the 6 Weeks of Teacher Training, the most common theme was the power of simple, truthful work.
This is Meisner to me. I left Teacher Training with a passion for everything Meisner has to offer voice students, especially the concept that ‘the truth of ourselves is the root of our acting.’ I can’t wait to see where this training leads me in my professional life as a teacher and singer.”
