Where did The Inspire Club begin?
About the Inspire Club founder, Beth Morgan……”I started my community Choir Leader Journey 6 years ago as I took on the role as MD for the Bristol Military Wives Choir. Today I now run 5 community based choirs, including 4 called The Great Day Choir, which I have built from scratch on my own. We have raised £1000s for charity.
But before that, my secondary music educator Choir Leader Journey begun 28 years ago with a school choir in a remote town in the Australian outback. Every Wednesday morning at 7:30am, I led 30 teenagers for an hour. Over 4 years they developed to become a musically competent SAB choir, regularly singing a range of music from show songs to contemporary Australian choral music, in 3-4 part harmony.
My next major milestone as a choir leader in school, was building a choir from scratch at a local secondary comprehensive school here in the UK and training them up – step by step – to perform at an international choral competition. For two years running we performed on the main stage representing England, alongside national and state youth choirs from all around the world.
I didn’t have a huge network of choir leaders to get ideas from or to help me figure out how I could take the next steps I desired. I did everything off my own back, through my own curiosity to learn. I turn up week in, week out to nurture and develop the singers in my choirs.
At the outset of the pandemic I launched The Creative Choir Leader community to connect and share ideas with other positive thinking people leading choirs like me.
Since then, I have had the privilege to work alongside some of the MOST inspiring choir leaders from around the world after launching The Inspire Club. MY VISION is that through The Inspire Club, people who love singing can build choirs from the ground up, create singing communities, and become inspiring choir leaders.
The Inspire Club is not a course. We know that starting, launching and growing a successful choir is an on going process that takes time. The group provides support, encouragement and training with industry experts. You’ll learn proven choir leadership techniques as well as the latest methods in tech, marketing, recruitment, and more. The Inspire Club is a safe place to share and walk through your Choir Leader Journey with people who get it and understand!
The community is by far the best part that makes The Inspire Club so special. That’s why – all week – it won’t be just me answering your questions….The Inspire Club members will join us to give you the full experience of the group. You’ll get to know the, learn from and with them, and be inspired by their own choir leader stories. It’s going to be so much fun! I can’t wait to see you inside!”

What do our members say….
I have learnt such a lot from the Inspire Club members, who, without exception, are so supportive, encouraging and helpful to everyone whilst being non-judgmental. I’m consolidating how I feel about my own skill set, adding to it, changing where necessary, and, where applicable, removing doubts about how I do things. It’s not always a painless process, but an ongoing one that is priceless. As a result I’m finding my feet and realising that I don’t have to be like others that I admire and respect, I’m no less professional if I don’t do everything that they do, in the way that they do it, and am comfortable in my own skin. And the biggest thing of all – I’ve made friends, real friends, all over the world, in my professional life that I never thought would be possible.ANN CLEWLOW
I felt generally pretty confident & experienced; however, having run an established choir (not my own ‘brand’) with over a hundred singers, I have now launched a new community choir (during a pandemic) so it feels like Im starting again & having to prove my worth. It can be a lonely world at times, with many mixed emotions – and although social media is a great way to reach out to people (& promote the choir), it can also feel a little competitive when constantly seeing what other choirs are doing, and how successful they seem. I have to be careful not to feel pressured into ‘keeping up’ and worrying that I’m not doing enough.I love the connections I’ve made with other choir leaders, and the fact that the ethos is one of support, connection & sharing – it doesn’t feel competitive at all! So I’m feeling less isolated, and encouraged about my work, as well as knowing that there are so many lovely people to turn to for help (or just a chat!) I have a tendency to hold back in big groups, but I feel comfortable when sharing here – feeling listened to and valued. Thank you so much to Beth for setting this up!JO SAVILLE
Before joining Inspire, I felt confident with what I was doing but keen to network with others and boost my skills and confidence further. Being a part of inspire club has been like being in a supportive family of fellow choir leaders, all with different strengths and challenges, all with different types of choirs, but all who understand the struggles and who are there to lend a shoulder when needed but also to cheerlead when things go well. Yes, inspire club has provided some fantastic training sessions and resources, but it is the mutual support that has made the biggest impact for me. I would never have thought I would join a group like this…but I’m so glad I did.JESSA LIVERSIDGE
