2020 Year In Review

Supporting the Arts

During 2020, Voice Study Centre has been proud to support the Arts Community. Through the development of our Corporate Social Responsibility Programme we have been able to focus on giving back during this difficult year. Over the summer we began hosting charity fundraisers for Help Musicians, raising over £3,000, and in the autumn we continued this with a fundraising workshop for Voices Foundation where we had over 60 attendees help raise a total of £691

Inclusivity in Education
We have also widened our commitment to improving inclusivity and reducing financial barriers within Higher Education, and to this end we launched our unique non-profit Foundation Course in 2020. This allows students who do not hold undergraduate degrees to develop their academic skills. Upon successful completion of the course students are able to go on to take a postgraduate programme with the Voice Study Centre, with the cost of the Foundation Course deducted from their Postgraduate Course Fees and we are excited to continue this course.

Online Short Courses
This year we hosted a great range of short courses, each of which has been informative and inspiring. You can browse these courses by taking a look at our vocal pedagogy online course archive.

Singing Teachers & COVID-19
During the struggles of the nation, which had serious implications for people’s mental health and wellbeing, VoiceStudy Centre student Lisa Price set up pop up choirs online and online community singalongs.
Lisa received a well deserved COVID-19 hero award, from the Lord Mayor of Dublin for all of her hard work and dedication.

 

In this video, a handful of our students share their experiences of teaching online during lockdown:
