Data Barring Services (DBS) now available to singing teachers

DBS certification – is it mandatory?

Although a DBS (formally a CRB) is not a legal requirement we would strongly suggest that all of our vocal coaches have an up to date Police check with ourselves. This can save face when asked if you have proof of safety when working with minors.

From 1 October 2013 My Singing Lessons has an arrangement for members in England and Wales with Atlantic Data to process DBS checks for self-employed members. Please note that a fee is charged for this service.

To apply for a DBS check please contact us at and a pack will then be sent to you with full instructions on how to complete the forms.
