VOCES8 is passionate about music education. Our commitment to inspiring people through music includes our unique educational programmes, choral scholarships, summer school and London music education hub. We are part of the VOCES8 Foundation, a registered charity that has received praise from UNESCO and invested more than £1 million in music education in the UK alone.
Written by Paul Smith of VOCES8 and available in English, German, French and Japanese, this ground breaking Method is a unique teaching tool. Designed for students of all ages, the Method is an innovative and engaging programme which is proven to enhance development in numeracy, literacy and linguistics.
As one of the only vocal ensembles in the world to have started our own centre for vocal music, outreach and education, we are delighted to call the VOCES8 Centre our London home. We run workshops, masterclasses, concerts and recording sessions from this stunning Wren Church and would be delighted to welcome your school, choir or community ensemble.
The VOCES8 Summer School and Festival is held each year at Milton Abbey in Dorset, UK. Participants in the Summer School work with VOCES8 throughout the week to rehearse and perform the closing concert of the Festival. The main focus for the Summer School is on major works with orchestra, and there is also the opportunity to work in smaller chamber ensembles which are directed by members of VOCES8. Summer School participants enjoy free entry to the concerts that take place each evening in the Abbey which feature renowned international artists.
Get in touch with Ann Wright, our Director of Education to find out more about our Young Leader Programmes, teacher training courses and how to book VOCES8 to come and sing with your School or Community.
