Evidence shows that children’s emotional development has suffered as a result of the pandemic.
Music can have a positive impact on all children’s wellbeing and mental health including their cognitive, emotional, and behavioural functioning.
There is an uncoordinated approach to music education across socio-economic divides resulting in major gaps in provision.

It was a wonderful experience for the children and one where we were all so proud of them especially seeing how far they travelled on their musical journey over the last 12 weeks. Thank you to you and your team for your efforts and perseverance.
My daughter had a wonderful time; she thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. It has increased her confidence and made her keen to sing even more.
Child, Year 6
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.
