Natural Voice Network
Welcome to our online home. We are a network of people who work with voice and song, and who believe that singing is everyone’s birthright, regardless of musical experience or ability.
If you want to sing, you can search for a natural voice choir or workshop in your area. If you are already a singing leader or are interested in becoming one, you can find support, training and resources here.
Please note that we are currently experiencing some problems with our website search facility, so if you can't find what you're looking for, please email our Administrator at firstname.lastname@example.org We apologise for any inconvenience this causes you.
What is Natural Voice?
Natural Voice is about celebrating the voice you were born with, rather than trying to train it to an ideal of perfection. It's about building accepting, non-judgmental communities that sing together. It's about welcoming all voices into a group without audition and working from there to make a group sound. It's about making learning by ear accessible to the whole group so that nobody needs to be able to read music.
Exploring Cultural Appropriation, Appreciation and Honouring
The NVN is in a process of exploring music and songleading in the context of wider conversations about racism, cultural honouring and appropriation. If you would like to read more on this topic, please click here.
Natural Voice Network at 25
In 2020, the NVN celebrated its 25th birthday. This video was made at the Annual Gathering in January 2020 to highlight the work we do and the development of the Network over the last 25 years.
Why join NVN?
The NVN offers a wide range of support for those working with voice and song: from practical benefits including public liability insurance and ongoing advertising opportunities, to a professional development network, which can provide ongoing support and training. You can keep in touch with other practitioners through our web services, and also meet them in person at regional events or our Annual Gathering every January.
