Little Voices, Fenham and Gosforth
LITTLE VOICES CELEBRATES 10 YEAR OF STARS!
Little Voices in Fenham and Gosforth appear to be breeding children with a love of the performing arts, if the burgeoning numbers at local singing and acting school, Little Voices, is anything to go by. Celebrating its 10th anniversary nationally the organisation has grown exponentially since it started in 2007 and to mark its continued success, Little Voices Principal Jenni Evans will be celebrating in every lesson the week commencing 18th September.
Little Voices is one of the UK’s most outstanding, professional and inspirational organisations organisations, dedicated to helping children reach their full potential in drama and singing and nurturing them as individuals.
Principal Jenni Evans commented: “Little Voices has made a huge difference to the confidence and overall development of lots of children in Fenham and Gosforth; academically and socially. I loved to perform and I have gone on to create my career in the performing arts industry. Many of the children that we teach come each week for their lessons and whilst building their CV from a young age and nurturing their vocal and dramatic talents they have fun, make lifelong friendships and we nurture their skills for life. Drama and Singing is a really accessible, fun way of building confidence to speak in public to become an effective communicator. A child can understand and learn how to present themselves, give good eye contact, have good posture and overcome anxiety and nerves in any life situation.
Blackburn born founder, Jane Maudsley, said; “The arts are being cut from the school curriculum and less importance is being placed on the importance of music and drama. It is so important, the arts can give a child and young person so much – Little Voices can bridge that gap for young people and ensure that they do not miss out on vital life skills acquired through arts training. Parents and Headteachers across the UK are turning to Little Voices to provide the missing building blocks of an all round education. We are delivering our lessons throughout the school day as well as providing the valuable after school activities for schools and busy working parents.”
The small class sizes along with individual attention and care is highly significant to the success of the children, continues Jenni: “This small number ensures that our students have a very personalised experience, even in this thriving business, and our success is proven by our constant 100% pass rate in the LAMDA drama examinations, year after year, towards which all our students work,” she said.
Tabitha added added: “I’ve been attending Little Voices’ lessons since it opened, it’s been a great way to make friends, gain confidence and improve my skills. "
