The Training Choir is for young singers in Year 1 through to the end of Year 6. All our young singers learn happy vocal health and musicality through fun and games and a wide variety of songs, including musical theatre, jazz and classical genres. Being part of such a choir each member will become a team-player, as well as developing confidence in their own voice. Our Training Choir also help set a good performing example to our younger members in the Junior Choir as their sessions overlap by 15 minutes.


Come and try us out on Wednesdays (during term-times) at 4.45-5.45pm. We hold a minimum of 2 concerts each year and are also often invited to sing at local events.



The Junior Choir at Spelthorne Young Voices aims to provide a musical grounding using games and songs for 3.5 – 5year olds which have a combination of Dalcroze and Kodaly principles so that whichever direction they take in their musical lives, they will come out singing happily and having made new friends. Our young singers also have the opportunity to sing with our Training Choir as the sessions overlap by 15 minutes. This helps them integrate with our older singers and experience singing with a larger choir.


Join us on Wednesday evenings (during term-times) at 4.30-5pm. The young singers perform in 2 concerts a year and always bring the house down!

Rehearsals for both choirs consist of musical warmups and group vocal tuition that are fun as well as educational.
