About The Voices Foundation
Voices Foundation has been working since 1993 to help schools, academies, Music Education Hubs and other partners across the UK to establish sustainable and effective music education in their settings. Everyone has a voice, and singing is a powerful way for children to become proficient musicians.
The Voices Foundation transform music in schools by developing teachers’ knowledge, skills and confidence in how to teach music effectively. Their model of teacher development supports schools to embed daily singing into school life – both through the curriculum and through extra-curricular choral enrichment. It aims to transform whole schools, teachers and children and is focussed on sustainable and integrated music education for all.
