The British Council's World Voice programme trains teachers to use singing in the classroom to develop a child’s musicality, enhance learning across the curriculum and learn about the world and other cultures through song.

As part of the 2019 UK - Russia Year of Music, UK Trainer Richard Frostick will work with Russian primary and secondary school teachers to introduce them to World Voice techniques that support language learning and creative classroom and behaviour management through song. 

The Russian partner for the programme is Letovo School, a new and innovative non-for-profit school located near Moscow. This is the first time World Voice has been taught in Russia, having been taught in fifteen other countries and benefited over 8,000 teachers and over 500,000 children around the world.

The first World Voice workshops took place from 12 to 14 March.

The second workshop will take place from 2 to 4 October for a group of 20-30 teachers, among whom those who would like to become World Voice trainers will be encouraged to take a lead.
