The British Voice Association (BVA) is the ‘voice for voice’ in the UK, an association of multi-disciplinary professionals who work to promote the field of voice in its broadest sense.
Our remit is the encouragement of a healthy voice, vocal skills and communication in such areas as the performing arts, business and industry, medicine and education. The British Voice Association recognises the human voice as an essential element of our communication and well-being. It is devoted to people with voice problems, ranging from severe pathology and cancer to subtle difficulties of artistic performance, all of whom are entitled to the best care available. To that end, we are dedicated to supporting, informing and encouraging members of all professions who work with these individuals.
Our Aims and Objectives
Provide multi-disciplinary education through symposia, conferences, workshops, training courses and interactive study days
Encourage voice research and cutting edge practice through Prizes, Lectures, Courses, Newsletter and Website
