Why is confidence so important?

What does confidence even mean?

Confidence is the feeling or belief in an ability to do something, according to google!

Children have so much to acquire and achieve. There’s so much for them to handle from such an early age especially once the school journey begins. There are many transitions along the way too; high school, friends, getting a part time job, handling the wider world and social media.

I once heard that a confident child is a happy one, and I couldn’t agree more. I don’t necessarily mean the children who are born to be on the stage, but the children who have the confidence to know their own mind, and be able to go through life with self belief. The children who have the confidence to speak to other children and adults, create friendships, not be too nervous about performing in the school nativity, who are happy to make friends on holiday, who are happy to join new clubs out of school, who are happy to put their hands up in class. And as these children get older, children who have the confidence when they join high school to just go for it, the children who know how to handle themselves in job interviews, or interviews for college and university. 

Some children are just born to be confident, others have a little more trouble. Some children need that little bit of extra help to believe in themselves to be able to do something. And that’s where lessons like Little Voices can help. Specifically tailored to building confidence – helping conversational and social skills whilst getting all the important performing arts techniques, examination experience and brand new friends – all these things not only help children who want a life on the stage, but parents who want well rounded children. 

So confidence is important for a child’s general happiness and to help create a well rounded individual. They don’t need to be the next big star, but confidence will certainly help them conquer lots of things that little people need to conquer!

You and your child’s sparkly New Year’s Resolution…

As adults we all have to ‘perform’ and present in our lives often not through choice and it may not come naturally. This could be such a difference experience, a positive one, if as a child the foundations are laid. So many adults now talk about experiences in school choirs and in public performances that haunt them for the rest of their lives. It could all have been so different.

At an early age and throughout primary school children are forming their views on the world and their comfort zones. One awful experience on the nativity stage can have a lasting and damaging effect. However, a positive experience could set them up to shape their future.

Wouldn’t you prefer to give them the mechanisms and skills to handle public performances and presentations so that they have the foundations to cope with whatever happens in performance in front of lots of people. Would you like to be comfortable in the knowledge that your child has the skills for life to handle any moment that they are in spotlight! Helping a child to flourish and push their comfort zones to find the magic is what we do at Little Voices. 

Drama and singing training is fun but it is not just there to nurture the talents of those wishing to pursue a life on the stage. Some organisations are about the talented few and creating a triple threat (a dancing, acting and singing superstar) set to take the West End Stage by storm however Little Voices exists to give EVERY child the confidence to be the best that they can be. Yes we have taught West End success stories but this happens for a small minority of children/adults. Little Voices believes that every child has something special to share and that life skills such as confidence, good eye contact, excellent posture, creating a good first impression, handling  and self-belief are crucial to success in any walk of life; be it a solicitor, a shop assistant, a dentist or a doctor…the list is endless. 

SO, give your child or a child that you know the chance to shine this Christmas and find a Little Voices lesson near to you! Make it your New Year’s resolution to ensure that your children have the right tools for next year’s Christmas nativity!
