Hi, I’m Jane Maudsley, and I’m the proud founder of Little Voices.
Doesn’t time fly! In 2007, when my daughter was just 3 months old, Little Voices was born. I’ve been on an incredible journey since then, and lots has happened – but in many ways, it feels like just yesterday.
Rewinding even further, I read Music at the University of Sheffield, trained at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and taught singing within a music department setting for many years.
I was also a peripatetic teacher, travelling from school to school, as well as teaching from home in the evenings.
But try as I might, I couldn’t see myself at the piano stool aged 85, still teaching singing from home.
As much as I loved the voice and hearing them develop, something was missing for me. My dream was to work with young people to enhance both their vocal skills and life skills within a unique framework.
And so Little Voices was the natural next step.
Little Voices has been, and always will be, about excellence and caring for each and every child.
A child’s development, and the individual attention that they receive through our unique drama and singing lessons, is of paramount importance. It is fundamental to all of us at Little Voices that we help build each child’s confidence and nurture their talent, because this is what will set them up with skills they can use throughout their life!
Our culture, values and beliefs enable us to deliver outstanding education in drama and singing within a safe, fun and creative environment.
And we have a system and support network that enables teachers, musicians, actors and entrepreneurs to build a successful future for themselves through Little Voices, too.
My motto in life, as well as business, sums it all up perfectly: ‘Take pride in how far you have come and have faith in how far you can go!’”
