The Diocese of Leeds Singing and Instrumental Programmes have been committed to transforming lives through music since 2003. Since then, we have worked with more than 25,000 children. Recognised as the UK’s leading choral music provision, we reach 4,500 children in whole-class singing sessions, after-school choirs, and one to one voice and instrumental lessons every week.
