 Something for Everyone... 

St Albans Musical Voices - our brand new choir for pupils in Years 2 to 5!

This is an exciting opportunity for children in years 2 - 5 to find their musical voice.

We specialise in offering a safe space where children can come and sing whatever their ability. We create a friendly nurturing environment where each child can develop their own unique voice. The children will learn all aspects of singing, whilst singing enjoyable music, and having lots of fun. No previous experience necessary.

Thursdays 4:30pm - 5:15pm at St Albans Music School starting Thursday 11th January
