I started working with Maia earlier this year; I'd been thinking about having singing lessons for a while and Maia's details popped up on my Facebook feed, so I decided to go along for an introductory session. Straight away, I felt confident Maia understood what I needed and how she could help me to improve and achieve my goals. Her explanations and strategies work so well for me, and after just a few sessions I felt I had a real breakthrough in terms of being much happier with how my voice sounded. Along with improvements in my tone and vocal range, I have also seen vast improvements in my confidence and how I feel about my voice. I so look forward to my weekly lessons; Maia is warm and welcoming, and pushes me both to challenge myself and enjoy myself. I would definitely recommend MHVS to vocalists; I have worked with a few singing teachers in the past, and my experience with MHVS has been by far the best, both in terms of the progress I've made and the fun I have during lessons!

I was looking for a professional vocal coach to help develop technique and gain confidence in my own ability to perform, so I could meet and share with other musicians. Since working with Maia, I’ve increased my vocal range; learned techniques I can practice on my own; performed and recorded in front of a live audience (courtesy of the MHVS Summer Showcase!); learned how to sing with a microphone and am building confidence all the time. In lessons. I’ve sung to backing tracks, my own guitar or Maia playing piano – she’s very open to how you want to work. She has great patience with the bits I am struggling with and helps me believe I can achieve more than I limit myself to. And we have a laugh whilst enjoying the music! I always look forward to lessons with Maia. I’m gradually performing more often, knowing I have the encouragement of a professional behind me who’s helped me focus on the right bits. Thank you!

I found Maia after too many years of not singing in public and fearful that recent aggressive cancer treatment would have irreparably damaged my voice. With Maia’s skill and gentle encouragement I have been able to slowly rediscover my instrument and work with the changes. I know that I am in the hands of a professional who keeps up with the latest research and also has the uncanny knack of finding just the right songs to inspire me to continue the journey. It is also a pleasure to spend time in her warm and engaging company.

My daughter was keen to pursue a future in musical theatre, but had previously had no formal singing training. I heard, from a friend at my daughter’s dance school how well her child had progressed under Maia’s tuition. After a half hour taster session, Lucy, my daughter was bubbling with enthusiasm, she felt she’d learnt more about her voice and how to use it than every before! She found Maia relaxed and friendly and in turn felt that she could sing in a relaxed environment, which I’m sure has been conducive to her progress. Lucy has been successful at seven drama school auditions since having singing lessons with MHVS. Maia prepared her in a way that her song was technically strong and was an all round performance. She had also learnt from Maia, how to prepare her voice before audition – knowing exactly how to warm up and which specific vocal exercises would be good for her in particular. Every week Lucy explores new songs and is adding to her repertoire and in doing so she is expanding her vocal range, learning how to support her voice properly and in general developing her vocal muscle. Perhaps more importantly, Lucy is really enjoying her sessions and has recently increased to half hour session to an hour. I’m over the moon with Lucy’s progress and even happier to see my child come out of each lesson excited and wanting more.

Maia is a fantastic teacher who has really helped to raise my confidence when singing in front of other people. Additionally, I have started to trust and believe in my vocal abilities which is due to Maia’s encouraging and welcoming nature. I would highly recommend Maia as a vocal coach to anyone and everyone as she is a joy to be around and her energy is infectious.

"I have always been a very nervous singer but as an actress I feel its an important skill to master. I came to Maia's first lesson a bag of nerves but was welcomed by a lovely, witty person with a big smile on her face. From here on my confidence has grown in abundance and it is thanks to the nature in which Maia teaches. We work towards goals, honing in on my specific strengths and weaknesses which has helped me discover my voice. Every lesson is a challenge and tailored to me and my requirements; very much a orientated around what I hope to achieve and what I am after as a singing student. I would highly recommend Maia to all genders and ages, no matter what your voice, Maia's your gal!"

"I (after being a student of Maia's vocal coaching) asked Maia to sing me down the aisle on my wedding day in February 2014. I think this in itself speaks volumes about how Maia is as a teacher, singer and person. As a teacher, Maia's approach was always tailored to my individual​ needs. I got to sing songs I was comfortable with, whilst always focusing on pushing me forward and developing strong technique. As a performer, Maia is a consummate professional and took time to ensure that her performance was exactly what we wanted for our celebration. All the feedback we received after the wedding was incredibly positive - Maia's singing was out of this world and we would recommend her to anyone!"

"I contacted Maia as I was keen to be able to add a voice to occasional get togethers with some old band mates which previously didn't include a singer. Maia has shown a real ability to understand what I wanted to get from lessons and we have worked on really relevant material as a result.The results have been much increased confidence in my singing and whilst the lessons have certainly challenged me, I have had a great deal of fun along the way."

"Having not sung for 2 years, I wished to rekindle my love of singing and so I looked on the net and chose Maia. I can honestly say that she has rekindled my enthusiasm for singing and my technique and confidence have improved immeasurably. We have worked on a joint programme of songs to learn and I feel confident in now singing some difficult numbers. I look forward to the weekly lessons!"
