Inspiring children to be happy and confident through music …
Patron The Mayor of Bath
Voices for Life is a charity to help inspire children to be happy and confident through the provision of high-quality specialised singing and confidence and wellbeing programmes for primary schools.
The children learn Voices for Life choral works based on newly created imaginative stories which take them on an exciting journey. The programmes are delivered through workshops integrating singing rehearsals with confidence and wellbeing activities that take children into their imaginations through the music, creatively combining both elements.
The workshops culminate in a performance of the music and enable children to develop their musical skills, experience musical expression and ultimately have fun singing together building their wellbeing, confidence and self-esteem as they develop in all aspects of their lives.

Evidence shows that mental health issues are rising and wellbeing deteriorating in children and young people.
There is a need to provide support for primary school children to help build self-esteem, emotional wellbeing, and confidence to enable them to continue developing healthily in all aspects of their lives.
All children, no matter who they are or where they live, have the ability to respond to music positively, helping improve children’s mental health and wellbeing.
The children in my class came back with big grins and lots of positive energy. I'm already looking forward to the performances in October!
Learning new songs, singing with others and performing together was a hugely positive experience for my daughter. She had so much fun, discovered a new skill and her confidence has soared.

I really like Voices for Life. The games and singing are fun. Sometimes I can be worried and then I remember Voices for Life and that I can overcome my fear and sadness. The workshops are making me so much better at singing and I am looking forward to the performance.
