    For boys and girls aged 8-16 - all abilities welcome

    We believe everyone should have the chance to make music and sing.

    We not only help young people develop musically but SING with A BIG VOICE Youth Choir injects a boost of confidence and breaks down inhibitions and self-consciousness.

    Our Youth Choir enables all children from aged 8 and up to sing together and have fun socially. The classes will develop children’s musical skills; pitch and rhythm, intervals and mental and physical co-ordination. We explore harmonies, rounds and call and response songs. We provide physical and aural voice training by singing a wide variety of age appropriate songs from different eras and genres to produce one big voice: pop, musicals, rock, folk, world music, soul, blues and jazz.

    The classes are also suitable for those who believe they have good voices and who wish to develop their vocal skills even further.

    Pay-as-you-go and discounted term fees available. For more information contact Maria:
