Meet our Team

My name is Becky, and I am delighted and excited to be the Principal of Little Voices East Lancashire, Craven, Wharfedale and Harrogate. I returned to live in this area in Summer 2023 after moving to the south to qualify as a primary school teacher, where I remained for a number of years with my husband and two children. However, I am a northerner born and bred, having lived in Skipton throughout my childhood. Circumstances have happily meant that I am able to return ‘home’ and now live with my husband on the East Lancs/Yorkshire border.

Having been a primary teacher for many years I have always continued to nurture and grow my passion for the performing arts. I have sung in many choirs and played in the viola in several orchestras, alongside continuing to teach. I believe passionately in and continue to see first hand the countless benefits that involvement in learning and sharing the performing arts can bring to children in boosting well-being, success in all aspects of their learning and confidence boosting to name but a few. The pillars upon which Little Voices is built aligns perfectly with my own educational ethos.
I am very fortunate to be supported by inspirational and passionate Tutors, who bring experience and expertise in Drama and Singing. I am joined in Colne (Trawden) and Skipton by Amy Battle, who is our Head of Centre in both venues and leads our Drama lessons, and by Jessica Broadbent, our lovely Singing Tutor!
Here are a few words from Amy – My name is Amy and I am a professional actress and drama/performance tutor, specialising in LAMDA teaching and drama with mindfulness workshops. I have over 20 years experience love my
job! My hobbies are visiting the theatre and spending time with my family and friends
We are delighted to be joined by Jessica Broadbent, an accomplished singer and Musical Theatre performer, who teaches Singing in our Skipton and Colne (Trawden) centres. Jessica has been a professional entertainer and singer for 8 years since finishing her training at Italia Conti in 2014 and the London School of Musical Theatre in 2015. Jessica has been lucky enough to perform both in the UK and abroad (Ibiza, Menorca and Lapland) for some award winning companies such as Butlin’s, TUI & Parkdean Resorts. Jessica is excited to be joining the Little Voices team and is hoping to inspire the next generation of performers. Photo below 🙂
