 Voices Foundation is an award-winning national charity that has been working since 1993 to help schools, academies, Music Education Hubs and other partners across the UK to establish sustainable and effective music education in their settings. Everyone has a voice, and singing is a powerful way for children to become proficient musicians.
 We transform music in schools by developing teachers' knowledge, skills and confidence in how to teach music effectively.  Our model of teacher development supports schools to embed daily singing into school life - both through the curriculum and through extra-curricular choral enrichment. It aims to transform whole schools, teachers and children and is focussed on sustainable and integrated music education for all.
Carole Kendall has a wide and varied experience as a musician. In the field of music education, she has taught in all key stages as well as working extensively with adults. Her work with the Voices Foundation is varied and includes mentoring non-specialist primary school teachers, giving advanced training to music curriculum leaders and delivering whole school CPDL. Carole has worked as a singing teacher for several schools and local authorities preparing students for GCSE and A level recital work as well as running choirs and coaching small singing ensembles. Carole’s experience has also extended into ***** education, working with evening classes to enable people to find their potential as singers. For many years Carole worked as a professional singer throughout the South East, specialising in small group a ******** music and oratorio. She is a tutor for PGCE music trainees at The University of Buckingham and is a regular contributor to articles about music in education periodicals.
