Development of children’s voices
This course will give you a firm foundation in the development of children’s voices, what they are capable of at each stage and the issues encountered during puberty. If you are a singing teacher, a choral director, a classroom music teacher or a Musical Theatre MD – this is what you need to know. The content is based on research evidence and a lifetime of experience in the field; it is not a teaching method, you will be given the tools to devise your own teaching strategies.

I thought I’d just say how inspiring I thought the course was. Jenevora is amazing – she has such a comprehensive knowledge of everything you need to know as a singing teacher. She’s not afraid to challenge conventions, yet she never belittles participants when breaking down those walls. It was wonderful to learn from her, and to spend a few days surrounded by colleagues from so many varied backgrounds
Just a quick note to say how much I enjoyed the recent course I attended with Jenevora Williams. She is obviously so knowledgeable and open to questioning, an excellent facilitator. The content was relevant and useful to my teaching practice.
Today, the topic Teaching Young Voices”” with Dr. Jenevora Williams was completed. I am so glad to be a part of this event. I would like to thank you and to thank to Jenevora for her professionalism, high quality of teaching and sharing. I will come again to continue my studies with her. Thank you.
Had an amazing three days on the teaching young voices course with Dr Jenevora Williams. Lots of knowledge gained on a subject I love, great meeting others in the same field and really well organised.
A super 3 days. Did exactly what was advertised. From the first enquiry I was very impressed. Great communication from the admin side. As for the course: A superb set up, clear teaching, and beautiful venue. A wonderful course which has inspired me to delve more. Lots of useful resources to take away and Dr Jenevora is just a wealth of inspiration and knowledge. A really welcoming atmosphere was created. A hugely rewarding course. The most beneficial I’ve done yet in my 11 years of teaching.
I thoroughly enjoyed the three days. The structure of the course was clear, and Jenevora delivered her own information clearly and at what I thought was a perfect pace, and answered questions thoroughly and honestly. I very much admire the fact that when she didn’t know something (admittedly very little!), she would just say so. I personally found the information on tongue positions very helpful. Not only do I already feel like a better teacher but also a better singer. I can’t thank you enough for enabling this course to happen, and Jenevora for three of the most informative and interesting days of my whole life! I can’t wait to relay this knowledge to my own students and help to inspire others in the way that I have been inspired. Thank you so, so much.
Many thanks Debbie for an excellent course: It will have a really big impact on the way we teach singing in Sheffield Music Hub.
