MARIA founded A BIG VOICE in 2006, initially offering Singing Lessons for all ages and abilities whilst continuing to perform Live Music to audiences across the UK. Already an experienced singer, with over 20 years of studio recording and live performances under her belt, Maria began coaching private students on a one-one basis as well as running community and corporate singing workshops in between her gigs. Maria is full of love for music and sharing her passion and expertise means she is able to offer something really special and tailor made for all ages!
People describe Maria as a gregarious, friendly and fun to be with character who gives 110% effort and energy to everything she does. Maria brings out the best in everyone around her and puts people of all ages quickly at ease. In between managing A BIG VOICE Singing Groups, Lessons, Workshops Children's Parties, and her Solo Gigs, Maria enjoys family life with her musician husband and son.
In 2008, due to high demand, A BIG VOICE expanded its perimeters of clients from across Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, the outskirts of north London and the South East. A Big Voice thrives on word of mouth glowing testimonials and recommendations.
If you are looking for something truly extra special whether it is a children’s party, to be part of a choir, 1-1 singing tuition, team building for your organisation, or even to have A Big Voice Maria be the Celebrant at your wedding and/or singing you down the isle before she entertains you for your evening party, you'e come to the right place.
