Showbie is our online platform for Voice for Life training materials, focused on materials for the Bronze, Silver, and Gold Awards. On Showbie you’ll find pages to help you perform your pieces well, as well as all the technical, musical and Choir in Context materials you’ll be tested on in the exam. There is no fixed timetable for completing the various sections, and you can choose the order in which you’d like to tackle each area. You can also come back into each section as many times as you’d like during the course of your preparations.

If you are creating a new account, please create a student account.

Please ask your Awards Representative for the current class codes. 

Instructions for accessing Showbie and joining classes can be found below. The class codes will add you into the classes offered: Bronze, Silver, and Gold. You can either add these when you join Showbie or at a later date. If you are under 18, make sure you have a parent or guardian’s permission to join the classes!
