Little Voices, Fenham and Gosforth
Little Voices Newcastle recently celebrated their first anniversary! Actress and musician Jenni Winter opened Little Voices Newcastle in February 2016, with schools in Fenham and Gosforth, bringing award-winning lessons of drama and singing to the children and young people of Newcastle.
Says Jenni of Little Voices “When I learnt about the franchise Little Voices I realised this would be a wonderful opportunity for local children. The classes are so small- no more than 6 in a class- that each pupil receives an amazing amount of attention, nurturing and care. The pupils alternate between singing and drama each week and get super excited about performing together. The new friendships my current pupils have formed are incredible, and are for life!
“The pupils enter group musical theatre exams every year, which teaches them so much about team work, as they have to work together and support each other. The support they have for each other is just lovely.”
Little Voices Newcastle pupils recently received 100% pass rate in their LAMDA exams, with all pupils receiving either merits or distinctions.
Pupils as young as 4 can join a Mini Voices class. Says Jenni of her Gosforth Mini Voices pupils “the change in them over the last year has been unbelievable. They joined me as shy, sensitive very young children, and they are now confident, talented, and amazingly generous and kind towards one another.”
The Mini Voices classes (age 4-6) , Little Voices classes (age 7-12) and Voices classes (13-15 or 16-18) also build up young people’s confidence and help them understand and express their emotions.
