About Little Voices - Newcastle
At Little Voices you will find outstanding tuition, expert guidance, support and traditional methods of teaching drama and singing, so that your child can pursue a life on the stage or increase their confidence in all areas of their life.
At Little Voices we pride ourselves on traditional and inspirational yet fun filled lessons, which are taught by passionate and highly qualified tutors so that your child can excel in a happy environment. Children are taught within a unique framework of Drama and Singing lessons of Distinction, in groups of no more than six pupils working towards highly respected and accredited Musical Theatre, Drama, Acting and Communication Examinations, including L.A.M.D.A. and Trinity Guildhall.
Pupils are organised into small groups of pupils according to their friendships within the groups and their ability.
- Mini Voices (4-7 years)
Mini Voices lessons are 30 minutes in duration and pupils are organised into no more than eight pupils in any group according to friendships and ability.
Lessons are taught on an alternate week system: one week the group has their drama lesson. The following week, at the same allotted time, the group has their singing lesson. All lessons take place in the after school hours on a weekday and operate within the academic term time for the schools in the locality.
All our pupils follow the preliminary Communication Examination syllabus and take at least one examination in the academic year.
- Little Voices (7-18 years)
Little Voices lessons are 45 minutes in duration and are for 7 – 18 year olds. Pupils are organised into no more than six pupils in any group according to friendships and ability.

Our lessons are designed to build confidence and promote individual personal and social development. The Vocal and Dramatic techniques are taught in a fun yet disciplined way and we provide the highest level of training within our unique Little Voices lessons.
- Voices (13-18 Years)
Voices lessons are for our maturing ladies and gentlemen aged 13 – 18 years. For the Advanced grades that have associated QCA accredited UCAS points awarded with the results it is important that we work towards solo and duo examinations as they approach Grades 6, 7 and 8.
Voices lessons are very specifically tailored to your son/daughter’s ability and future vocal and dramatic intentions. Many of our pupils go on to study Drama, Music or Performing Arts but equally many of our pupils wish to just enhance their UCAS application or CV with details of their extra curricular experiences that they have loved for so long. Little Voices supports each individual pupil to strive towards their individual goals.
The voice often experiences hormonal changes at this age and many teenage pupils, not just boys, have vocal difficulties to overcome. They really need the support, training and confidence to still pursue their performing - either in school or as part of local theatre companies - at this time from their Little Voices tutors.
