TRANSFORMING LIVES THROUGH SINGING
The Voices Foundation is a national charity which uses the power of singing to improve the lives of children and young people in the UK
The Voices Foundation helps children and young people aged 0-18 to learn to sing and develop as musicians.
We want to make sure that no child is left out when it comes to learning to be a musician. It is proven that children who engage in high quality, regular musical learning from an early age gain musical, intellectual, emotional and social advantages. However, many children miss out on these benefits as they do not have access to any form of music education.
We help teachers and schools to ensure that music is an integral part of education from the early years. The Voices Foundation wants to give every child the chance to discover their musical talent so that they are part of the next generation of musicians.
WHAT WE DO
The Voices Foundation is a national music education charity working closely with schools, academies, Music Education Hubs and partners to deliver sustainable solutions for the provision of a rigorous and effective music education through singing.
INVOLVE YOUR SCHOOL
Empower your staff to lead singing activities and music curriculum through our teacher development programmes.
Inspire your pupils with singing projects and sessions led by expert music leaders.
We work with nurseries, primary and secondary schools.
The Voices Foundation has been operating for 24 years. Thanks to the vital support of individual philanthropists, Trusts and Foundations and Corporate sponsorship we have reached:
+ 1000 schools
+ 10,000 teachers
+ 200,000 children
We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded a significant grant from Paul Hamlyn Foundation through their Teacher Development Fund, in partnership with the David Ross Education Trust (DRET). Building on our strong partnership with DRET, this funding will enable us to deliver a pioneering initiative which focuses on embedding singing into the curriculum as an agent for overall school improvement, supporting children and young people experiencing disadvantage.
The work will be delivered through CPDL over the next two academic years across schools based in Yorkshire and the East Midlands.
“We have seen the Voices programme have a huge impact on pupils’ confidence in all areas of school life, in particular their musicality, concentration, confidence in leading learning, and working within a group and listening.”
