I was looking for one-to-one singing lessons for my 11-year-old daughter Kathryn, who is considering a career in musical theatre, as I wanted her to have a good singing technique and learn how to properly look after her voice. After trying out a few different teachers, we chose Maia as we found her lessons to be the perfect balance of fun but a solid learning experience and most importantly, Kathryn felt the most comfortable with her. Kathryn’s singing voice has undoubtedly improved after just a few months of lessons. I really appreciate that Maia provides consistent feedback and I feel she has really understood how to get the best from Kathryn. I am very confident that Kathryn will learn a lot more from Maia moving forwards. If you are considering singing lessons for your child, then I wholeheartedly recommend trying a tester lesson with Maia
When the band I had been in for over 10 years split up, I wanted to carry on with some form of musical performance but, being no Eric Clapton on guitar, I realised that I really need to be able to sing to some extent. So I came to Maia to find out whether I had any potential singing ability and, if so, to build enough confidence to stand up in front of an audience.
I don’t think I’m naturally a very outgoing person and the idea of singing on my own in public scared me because it really feels like you’re putting yourself ‘out there’. I did feel nervous going to my first lesson but Maia very quickly put me at ease and I have found her very easy and fun to work with from the start. Because I had some ideas about the songs I was interested in, I have found Maia very open to tailoring lessons around these. I really value the positive encouragement and honest feedback I get from Maia – I have been surprised at how much there is to learn and think about even when singing a ‘simple’ rock song. Perhaps more importantly, I have been amazed by how much singing really lifts your mood and makes you feel better about life in general!
If you feel any inclination at all to try singing then I strongly recommend you book a taster session – you’ll have a lot of fun and you might just surprise yourself!
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 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!
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 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!
