Shean Bowers and Tessa Armstrong shared a vision to develop a charity that inspires children to be happy and confident through the delivery of music and singing programmes. Shean’s professional musical expertise and experience combined with Tessa’s confidence and emotion coaching experience and musical background provide a unique combination of skills and knowledge. This combination will enable them to design accessible Voices for Life music and coaching programmes for children in a creative way to enhance confidence, wellbeing and self-esteem that is compatible with life during and beyond coronavirus.
Voices for Life launched in February 2021 with the release of an online video in support of Children’s Mental Health week. The video is introduced by world renowned conductor and composer, John Rutter, and features a recently formed virtual children’s choir with children across Bath and Wiltshire who premiere the Voices for Life Wellbeing Song.
