All choristers need to ‘get to know’ their own voice with designated one-to-one time in order to understand their vocal range and ensure that they care for their ‘inbuilt musical instrument’ as their bodies develop.

Thanks to the generous support of Trusts and Foundations and individual donors, members of the Cathedral Choirs regularly receive one-to-one professional vocal coaching completely free of charge.

Our singers develop a strong vocal technique that can be put into practice in choir rehearsals, competitions, concerts, broadcasts and recordings as well as music-making at school. Specialist support is given to adolescent boys with changing voices, giving them the confidence and enthusiasm to continue singing through a period of natural transition.

Our Director of the Schools Singing Programme @thomas_leech writes for @ISM_music on our work during lockdown and the absolute necessity to fight for opportunity and equality in choral music - hugely under threat at the moment.

My voice is changing right now so I’m in this range where I can sing quite high or low, so I can either sing treble or tenor right now! When I sing it gives me more confidence in school and everywhere. The whole choir feels like a community and you get to meet lots of new people as well. My favourite pieces are some of the Glorias, I also like singing in other languages. 13 years old, Leeds Cathedral Senior Boys Choir ... See MoreSee Less

I feel happy because it just lets all your emotions out. I like singing. My favourite thing about choir is singing, and I’m really excited for the BBC broadcast. We’ve been rehearsing for it since September, since we came back from the holidays. If you feel nervous about singing imagine it’s only you in the room and you’re singing to yourself. When I joined I was really nervous, but my sister was in the choir (she’s in Seniors now) and she helped me to sing. 10 years old, Bradford Junior Choir ... See MoreSee Less
