Latvian Association of Teachers of Singing

Latvian Association of Teachers of Singing (LATS, or Latvijas dziedāšanas skolotāju asociācija, EVTA.LV-LDSA) is a non-governmental organisation that consists of approximately 70 members who have joined because of their interest in singing.

Among the members are voice professors of Jāzeps Vītols Latvian Academy of Music, students, music and singing teachers of primary and secondary schools, vocal coaches as well as professional singers of opera, popular and traditional music, accompanists, choir members and also enthusiasts, lovers of singing. Since 2009, it is also a member of the European Voice Teachers Association (EVTA).

The main event that is organised by LDSA is the annual summer conference "Es dziedu" (I Sing) where the members gather to attend lectures, workshops, master classes and discussions about voice and singing. Besides that, additional master classes of prominent guests are being organised throughout the year and latest news on voice and singing are distributed among the members.

How to "find" one's voice, how to nourish it and keep it? How to hear the others, how to sing along - that is what we aim to understand and share our knowledge with each other.
