VOCES8 is passionate about music education. Our commitment to inspiring people through music includes our unique educational programmes, choral scholarships, summer school and London music education hub. We are part of the VCM Foundation, a registered charity that has received praise from UNESCO and invested more than £1 million in music education in the UK alone.

Written by Paul Smith of VOCES8 and available in English, German and French with Japanese and Chinese versions planned for release, this ground breaking Method is a unique teaching tool. Designed for students of all ages, the Method is an innovative and engaging programme which is proven to enhance development in numeracy, literacy and linguistics.
As one of the only vocal ensembles in the world to have started our own centre for vocal music, outreach and education, we are delighted to call the Gresham Centre our London home. We run workshops, masterclasses, concerts and recording sessions from this stunning Wren Church and would be delighted to welcome your school, choir or community ensemble.
VOCES8 is delighted to be the resident ensemble at the Milton Abbey International Festival and Summer School. The summer school is delivered in conjunction with the music festival, with participants working with VOCES8 throughout the week to rehearse and perform the closing concert of the festival. The main focus for the summer school is on major works with orchestra, and in the afternoons there is the opportunity to work in smaller chamber ensembles which are directed by members of VOCES8. Summer school participants can also enjoy free entry to the music festival concerts that take place each evening in the Abbey and showcase renowned international artists.
Get in touch with Ann Wright, our Education Projects Manager to find out more about our Young Leaders Programme, teacher training courses and how to book VOCES8 to come and sing with your School or Community.
