For Teachers

Ready to join the YV family?

Come together with thousands of fellow teachers and provide your students with an educational and live performance experience they'll remember for the rest of their lives.

Over the past 25 years, Young Voices has staged full-scale arena concerts with first-class production values nationwide. Over two million children have passed through our doors to sing along with legends like Tony Hadley, Beverley Knight, Joss Stone and dozens of brilliant artists.

Don’t Stop Me Now

YV is a unique mix of educational material for the classroom that is designed to engage and inspire your students, coupled with a live rehearsal and performance experience. We’ll provide you with all the materials and instructions you need to teach your choir so that they can reach their full potential prior to the concert. This includes videos, lyrics, choreographies and teaching tips.

Continued Professional Development

Our world-class Teacher Workshop days are led by David Lawrence, Craig McLeish and Andy Instone. The Teacher Workshops aim to raise the quality of singing in your school by focusing on new teaching methods and strategies that you can apply in the classroom to improve the development of music in your school. Teacher Workshops help boost teachers’ confidence and are a great opportunity to network with other colleagues as part of your continued professional development.

'An amazing day! I came away energised and motivated. Can't wait to implement and share new ideas with both children and staff!'

Bristol Teacher Workshop 2020

Our Teacher Community will open the doors to thousands of colleagues to collaborate, bounce ideas, share experiences, make friends and become even better at what you do.

Above all, we’ll help you supercharge your children’s experience through the entire year, until we all arrive on the concert day where you’ll sing together with our very special guest artists in front of a full capacity arena of family and friends.

  • help What's the cost of registration? keyboard_arrow_up keyboard_arrow_down

    Every year YV charges a registration fee (£95 + £5 P&P tracked mail ) for schools who wish to take part.

    With payment of the registration fee you will receive:

    • Teachers Guide – information, order forms and useful tips
    • Music Book – notes from our conductor David Lawrence, music and lyric sheets
    • Online Teacher Resources – full access
    • Online YV Teacher Community – full access
    • Secure Online Resources for choir members
    • Inclusion in a YV concert – regardless of the size of your choir!
  • help Are there any requirements? keyboard_arrow_up keyboard_arrow_down

    Over 150,000 children participate in our concerts each year! As with all exciting things – there is a limit to the number of concerts we hold each year and the number of children that each venue can hold. So that we don’t exceed this capacity we need the help of you, our teachers.

    Upon registration we will ask you for the approximate size of your choir. We understand that this might be far enough in the future that you don’t have a good estimate – new to the school, first time at YV, bringing a new class year, etc. However, if you could make your very best educated guess that will help us have an idea of capacity.

    Any schools that do not submit an approximate choir size will be allocated our average (30 children).

  • help What payment methods do you accept? keyboard_arrow_up keyboard_arrow_down

    We accept payment methods including BACS payments and card payments.

    To confirm your choirs’ place in one of our concerts, the payment of the registration fee must be received and approved. All registrations are subject to availability until payment is received in full.
