Voices for Life


Voices for Life uses the power of music to empower children to be happy and confident in primary schools in Bath.

Tessa Armstrong, a musician aware of the benefits of music on wellbeing, founded Voices for Life in response to the increased mental health issues in young people, coupled with diminishing music provision in schools. Musicians visit schools weekly to work with 30-40 children and other programmes include community choirs and whole school singing assemblies. They are inundated with requests to work with new schools in new areas, but they don’t have capacity to respond.

Our funding will allow Tessa to sustainably grow the organisation across the South West. Their existing model will be replicated first in South Gloucestershire, followed by Somerset and later Cornwall.
