They deliver video making workshops that give participants an opportunity to learn new skills, gain a sense of achievement and increase self-confidence through creating their own video.

Singing:

Mary-Jane de Havas offers Voice coaching and workshops for professional voice users such as teachers.  I work one to one or in groups. Workshops cover all the essentials of how to help prevent OVD (Occupational Voice Disorders),  how the voice works, practical exercises and “takeaways”, breathing, projection, state of being and attitude, pitch range, loudness, tone and articulation, pitch home and power source of your voice. I also demonstrate common ways of speaking that will cause problems.

 “ Mary Jane’s practical workshop helped us to get in touch with one of our most valuable assets and offered guidance and support to look after it.  This is a must for supporting staff well-being and showing them we value their contribution to our school.  Thank you for inspiring and uplifting us Mary Jane!”  (Amrit Bal-Richards, Headteacher, Chater Infant School)
