Welcome to Young Notes! #notyouraveragechoir
Young Notes run several pop music choirs across Enfield and Essex for children aged between 4 - 18. We sing current, upbeat pop songs in a fun and friendly environment. Not a traditional choir; our members are encouraged to explore creativity, movement and musicality - we nurture a love of music. Children are also taught vocal and performance techniques - all levels of singing ability are welcome! There are also plenty of opportunities to participate in group and solo performances and an annual end of year production to look forward to!
An award winning class, our children are taught by industry trained teachers and have taken part in some amazing performances. Young Notes have appeared on CITV, featured in John Lewis and Waitrose commercials and performed at Southwark Cathedral this year, amongst many other exciting opportunities. We run regular workshops and children have the opportunity to star in our fabulous music videos too!
Children are taught by fully qualified and DBS checked teachers.
Singing brings great joy to people but it also has many other benefits!
As well as increasing confidence, singing makes you happy! It relieves stress and releases endorphins which make you feel good. One of the greatest benefits of singing is the constant use of the ‘memory muscle’ and the ability to improve mental concentration and memory.
Singing helps to develop children’s language and communication skills whilst exercising lip and tongue movement which helps with speech development as well as broadening their vocabulary. Young children learn rapidly through the use of music, song and rhyme as the process of singing helps to embed the information in a child’s mind. For instance, many young children may learn the letters of the alphabet through the use of song.
Singing also has physical benefits; the deep breathing used when singing helps to exercise the lungs, strengthen the diaphragm and improves circulation. Improved posture is also another benefit as standing straight is part of good singing technique which will eventually become routine. Studies have also shown that singing can also boost the immune system and helps with sleep.
Singing as part of a choir has great social benefits as you are able to make new friends with others who enjoy music and singing. Group singing brings people together and is great for bonding. Studies have shown that people who sing in choirs are more connected to one another than those participating in other classes.

No ordinary choir! 5 My five year old twins started at Young Notes in January and despite initial nervousness (I had to stay the first session as my legs were clung to so tightly!) they now get into their t-shirts straight after school and count down the time until we can get to the class. In just one month they have grown in confidence and love practising and performing their new songs. After just 4 weeks they put their hand up for a solo/duet and got to sing 2 lines on their own plus my daughter had a real confidence boost winning star of the week.
I am so impressed with the passion that a class like this can bring out and just wish that they had an adults version I could join!

5* 5 Young notes has done wonders for my daughter's confidence. She attends both signing and pop choir and looks forward to going each week. All the teachers have a wonderful rapport with the children. Highly recommended
