TESTIMONIALS-Clients & Parents
*BUCKS COUNTY COUNCIL-
Melanie Chilvers (Communications and Projects Officer-Children & Young People) says:
"A Big Voice provided a super interactive 'Tunes for Toddlers and Tiddlers' stage session as part of a varied programme of demonstrations in the Buckinghamshire County Council marquee at the Bucks County Show on 1 September 2011. The parents and children obviously enjoyed the opportunity to join in with some well known songs and all soon got the hang of the actions. We would like to thank Maria for coming and bringing her enthusiastic approach to singing to the show. Just wanted to say thank you very much for joining us. It was a great success and I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did! Best regards".

Robyn Roberts (Little Breaks Coordinator).
"Dear Maria, Thank you for coming and singing with us at 'Little summer breaks'. Both staff and children really enjoyed the sessions.
As a service which caters exclusively for children with Additional Needs and disabilities it can be difficult to find entertainers who are inclusive and meet the needs of our children, but having talked to the staff they felt that your session was very inclusive and the children really engaged with the content. Thank you for following our under the sea theme, it really enhanced our session.
I am happy to recommend you to parents and other professionals in the future.
*June 2011 Sally says:
FANTASTIC group. You really do get so much more for your money, rather than some of the other music groups which just play music. Maria is so enthusiastic all the children love her and are engaged throughout the entire session. My daughter has loved going since she was born. She is now over 2 and loves joining in with the now-familiar songs and dancing away! Educational as well as fun - highly recommend this group to any mums in the area.
