I’m Laura, the principal of Little Voices Rutland and I’m delighted to be bringing our fun and inspirational singing & drama classes to the children & young people of Rutland!
The professional team at Little Voices Rutland are committed to helping your child nurture talent, make new friends, and learn in a fun and friendly environment. We understand how important it is for children to be the best they can be, and this is why our outstanding practitioners provide the very highest level of training in all of our singing lessons, drama classes, and acting lessons. Now, more than ever before we need to support children’s wellbeing after they have been locked down for months with no social interaction. Our lessons will help your child reintegrate back into normal life and build back any confidence that has been lost during the pandemic.

MINI VOICES (4 -7 years)
Our ‘Mini Voices’ lessons are for 4 to 7 year olds delivered in small class sizes introducing children to performing arts through fun and inspiring Drama and Singing lessons. We aim to build children’s confidence, nurturing each child’s talent and developing their communication skills.
Pupils work towards a mid year theatrical performance as well as an optional end of year LAMDA communication examination. This will involve each child reciting a poem and talking about a show and tell.
LITTLE VOICES (8 – 11 years)
Our ‘Little Voices’ lessons are designed for children aged 8 to 11 years, classes are small in size and are grouped according to age and ability. Little Voices singing and drama lessons cover a varied theatrical repertoire working towards a mid year musical theatre performance as well as an optional end of year LAMDA musical theatre, acting or speaking verse and prose exam.
During these lessons we cover; characterisation, expression, script work and working together as part of a ‘cast’ as well as nurturing each child’s young singing voices with vocal health as a priority.
Our ‘Voices’ lessons are designed for children aged 12 to 18 years, and this is where we start to see the Little Voices training brought to centre stage! This is the age at which your child will be going through lots of hormonal changes, some of which may affect their voice (girls, as well as boys). The support, training & confidence they get from their Voices lessons will help them through this tricky period in their lives.
Your child will continue with their LAMDA Exams, and as they start to acquire the advanced grades, the marks they achieve often provide a valuable contribution to UCAS points for entry to university.
School Holiday workshops!

Now MORE THAN EVER it is so important that children have access to performing arts to help their development and for their mental well-being. Our workshops are a great opportunity for children aged 4 – 18 years to build in confidence and make new friends through singing, drama and dance.
