Welcome to the JTPTrust, a Swindon singing charity, now celebrating its 18th year. We are an educational charity, supported by the Swindon Music Hub. We offer weekly youth and children’s singing tuition plus ad hoc adult workshops and events in the Swindon area.
As youth providers, we organise weekly classes for singers aged 4 – 18 years and upwards, led by a team of vibrant teachers. There are no auditions, so any child may join us. In our weekly classes you will be offered opportunities to perform as soloists, in choirs and to work with movement and performance. As part of your training we will encourage you to take exams, enter solo singing festivals, and take part in concerts and performances. Some of our students have gone on to become members of national youth choirs and musical theatre groups. Former JTPTrust singers and Associates have achieved recognition in West End and operatic worlds, and enjoyed local acclaim as soloists in community choirs and theatre groups.
Our ad hoc adult workshops and events take place throughout the year. Our notable community successes include ‘Brunel: The Little Man in the Tall Hat (Youth Opera, 2006) and ‘Swindon the Opera’ (Diamond Jubilee Project 2012). In July 2022, the JTPTrust will be presenting ‘Creating Swindon the Opera’, a retelling of the acclaimed and nationally recognised project.
