The National Association of Teachers of Singing has fostered the formation of Student NATS (SNATS) chapters in order to advance knowledge about the Association and the professions of teaching and singing. The PSU SNATS Chapter was established in 2007, and meets several times each semester to hold events, discussions, and workshops on a variety of topics, often bringing in guest presenters or tapping resident experts. PSU SNATS also sponsors and assists with occasional voice area activities.
Leadership opportunities are available, and programming of events can respond to the interests of members. Since SNATS members are not members of NATS*, there are no dues to pay to the national organization, although there are modest dues paid to the chapter to offset costs. (*NATS has also established a student membership category, but this is separate from SNATS.) SNATS members may also enjoy a reduced student rate on subscriptions to Journal of Singing.Please contact the SNATS advisor, Norman Spivey, for further information, or visit http://www.nats.org/about_snats.html
