Raise Your Voice With Confidence- online, individual singing lessons

It is becoming more apparent that singing lessons are a great way to help the recovery of Long Covid. How do I know? I have long Covid myself! Please look at our details below and get in touch if you are interested in a free 20 minute introductory chat.

Raise Your Voice With Confidence is a six week course that enables you or your young person to go from starter to star. The programme consists of learning just two songs but ensures that the vocalist is fully able to sing both by the end of the six weeks through learning about pitch, dynamics and of course confidence!

Prices are £15 for 30 minutes, £20 for 45 minutes and £30 for an hour and are sold as an upfront payment for a 6 week programme.

Currently these sessions are being offered over Zoom.

Let’s hear from Holly as to why she has enjoyed them so much https://youtu.be/9bdfvIRfhuY

Raise your Voice Choirs

Raise Your Voice Logo v3

If you want to sing up beat, positive songs, some with a twist then the Raise Your Voice choirs are for you!

The method we use is singing directly from lyric sheets – so no manuscripts – you don’t have to be able to read music. We also learn how to annotate the songs so that we each know how it should be sung. Using backing tracks mean that we can access the most up to date songs straight away and that they are accessible to all. We also like to experiment with mash ups and sing original songs such as this one written by Carol.

Our choirs are held in 2 venues at the moment https://pudseywellbeing.com/  and http://batleycommunityoutreach.org.uk/ and are for all ages. Athough we are not currently running our primary school choir do get in touch if you would like us to do one at your school.

Raise Your Voice – Pudsey Community Choir

We believe that singing should be accessible to all and Raise Your Voice Pudsey does just that! Set in the relaxed environment of https://pudseywellbeing.com people can just turn up and have a sing! The ethos is that we sing our favourite songs and then decide whether to work on them for performance pieces. Performances to date have included Care homes, churches, community festivals and a special performance at First Direct Arena for World Peace Day.

Raise Your Voice Pudsey meet at Pudsey wellbeing charity, LS28 on Thursdays at 7-9pm. Each session costs £3.

We love new people so come and get involved :0)

Raise Your Voice – Pudsey Youth Choir

Comprising of young people who are the children of adults in the community choir and also other local young people Raise Your Voice Pudsey Youth choir are a fun loving group of young people who are always ready for a challenge. Amongst them we have discovered song writers and arrangers and, like the primary schools choirs the choirs are structured using a word of the week and a pick of the week ensuring maximum ownership and fun for all concerned!

Raise Your Voice Pudsey youth choir meet at Cafe Lux Pudsey on Thursdays at 4-5pm and costs £1.50 per session.

Raise Your Voice Together- All age choir

We are very excited to be starting our first all aged choir at Batley Community Outreach. Members of all ages come to sing fun, well-known songs in a relaxed and easygoing atmosphere- you may well be offered a cup of tea mid song by one of the younger participants but there is also a tea break where everyone can enjoy refreshments!

Raise Your Voice Together meet at Batley Community outreach Centre, Wellington Road on Wednesdays 1-2.30pm and the session is free of charge.

Raise Your Voice – Primary School Choirs

The ethos of our primary school choirs is that the pupils can sing what they choose but the songs have to make them feel happy and they have to be happy to sing them in front of their parents or teachers!

Each week there is a word of the week which shapes the session and gets the pupils thinking about themselves and their relationship to music. There is also a pick of the week slot enabling the pupils to listen to the songs they love but this also teaches great listening skills and mutual respect whilst often broadening their knowledge of music.

Recently Raise Your Voice Wibsey won the OBON competition to write a song for the Queens 90th birthday and their prize was to record it at a local recording studio. These opportunities can be totally new experiences for some of the pupils and offer an exciting incite into the world of commercial music and songwriting.

Raise Schools

Raise has been working in schools since 2008 delivering our bespoke behaviour management sessions and offering emotional support to those children who are socially disadvantaged. Team Up offers the unique mix of raising individual confidence and self-esteem with peer mentoring educating and encouraging children to connect, listen and empower each other, whilst High School Heroes aims to empower and encourage young people as they make the transition from primary to secondary school.

Our prices for schools work are based on our competitive hourly sessional rate but pop an email over to us and we’ll do our best to cater to your needs. If you’re looking for a different type of emotional support for your pupil then get in touch and we’ll see how we can help.

Raise Team UP

Raise Team UP offers children who value either one to one sessions, or a smaller group setting the opportunity to explore and celebrate who they are as an individual and then as part of a team.

By using simple games, exploratory worksheets, listening skills and communication games Team UP allows children the attention they so often crave whilst identifying that they will always need to be able to work with others.

Raise Team UP peer mentors

Raise Team UP peer mentors offers children who have already followed the initial Team UP programme a further opportunity to explore who they are and how they can change their own behaviour and then explore and apply that in a small group setting. Ideally this programme will be continued with the same coach and team.

By using simple games, exploratory worksheets and creative ways of discovering and celebrating emotions Team UP peer mentors allows children the opportunity to understand what forms behaviour and how that can be changed in themselves and in others

High School Heroes

Are you looking for a simple and effective transition programme? High School Heroes is a bespoke transition programme which can cater to your year 6 needs. Using the simple themes of Heroes and Villains, High School Heroes enables each and every year 6 to explore who they want to be at High School, what their worries and concerns may be, how to deal with those worries and what stepping up to that responsibility looks like.

High School Heroes will

  • Empower every year 6 child to enter high school with full confidence in their learning potential
  • Encourage children to support each other
  • Build the links between the primary and secondary schools
  • Support year 7s in their new learning environment
