It appears the schoool is breeding children with a love of the performing arts
Little Voices in Putney and Wandsworth appears to be breeding children with a love of the performing arts, if the burgeoning numbers at local singing and acting school, Little Voices, is anything to go by. Celebrating its 10th anniversary nationally the organisation has grown exponentially since it started in 2007 and to mark its continued success, Little Voices Principal Ashlea Pearson will be celebrating in every lesson the week commencing 18th September.
Little Voices is one of the UK’s most outstanding, professional and inspirational organisations organisations, dedicated to helping children reach their full potential in drama and singing and nurturing them as individuals.
Principal Ashlea Pearson commented: “Little Voices has made a huge difference to the confidence and overall development of lots of children across Wandsworth academically and socially. I loved to perform and I have gone on to create my career in the performing arts industry. Many of the children that we teach come each week for their lessons and whilst building their CV from a young age and nurturing their vocal and dramatic talents they have fun, make lifelong friendships and we nurture their skills for life. Drama and Singing is a really accessible, fun way of building confidence to speak in public to become an effective communicator. A child can understand and learn how to present themselves, give good eye contact, have good posture and overcome anxiety and nerves in any life situation.
Blackburn born founder, Jane Maudsley, said; “The arts are being cut from the school curriculum and less importance is being placed on the importance of music and drama. It is so important, the arts can give a child and young person so much – Little Voices can bridge that gap for young people and ensure that they do not miss out on vital life skills acquired through arts training. Parents and Headteachers across the UK are turning to Little Voices to provide the missing building blocks of an all round education. We are delivering our lessons throughout the school day as well as providing the valuable after school activities for schools and busy working parents.”
When the founder, Jane Maudsley, opened Little Voices in 2007, which has a very professional focus using expert guidance and traditional methods there were just 12 pupils in total. Since then Little Voices has become a national success and the organisation teaches thousands of young people across the country from as young as 4 years old right up to 18 years old.
Little Voices Putney & Wandsworth theatrical workshop lessons are small in size allowing Ashlea and her team of tutors to give individual attention and care which is highly significant to the success of the children, continues Ashlea: “Our aim is for every child to receive a personalised experience at every lesson, even in this thriving business, and our success is proven by our constant 100% pass rate in the LAMDA drama examinations, year after year, towards which all our students work,” she said.
One of Little Voices students Max Moorehouse began training with the performing arts organisation at aged 5 years old in 2007. Max has now gone on to secure amazing roles in shows such as ‘The Railway Children’ in the West End and has an endless repor of wonderful LAMDA examination results which has further enhanced his CV.
