ABOUT MARIA RIVINGTON - MMus, BA (Hons)
-Soprano Soloist, Vocal & Presentation Skills Coach

MARIA's passion and interest in the Human Voice and its potential started early. Cathedral Choir & school from the age of 10, and following further vocal training in her teens, she made a name as a classical soloist, fronting rock- and pop bands and as a session singer. 

Pursuing her interest in both singing and languages, she graduated in 1990 from the University of Gothenburg, Sweden with a BA(Hons) in English Linguistics and an MMus (performance) from the Academy of Music and Drama.

She then joined Sony Music and an extensive career in UK’s music industry and HR followed, working for HMV,Kingfisher and Virgin, mixing in solo work, session singing, and teaching whenever possible.

  •  Maria has been working with many of our executive clients, both in the UK and around the world, since 2007. She is one of our most valued and highly skilled interview coaches, consistently achieving excellent results and positive client feedback. I am delighted to recommend her work to anyone interested in high quality coaching in this field...

  •  Maria is magic. Through her guidance, teaching and unique intuition, the quality and stamina of my voice have improved enormously. I have had singing teachers before, but Maria is not just a teacher. What she offers is so much more and the freedom that I have now achieved within my vocal range is something that I will always be truly grateful to her for.

  •  It is always a joy to hear Maria sing beautiful solos. Preforming not just on Sundays but at weddings and funerals, people often comment on the quality of her vocal range and singing. Maria always gives 150% and we are profoundly grateful for her gifts and the grace with which she uses them for the enjoyment of many.

  •  Maria has had a tremendous effect on me personally and professionaly; enabling a sense of strength clarity & freedom in my voice I've never achieved before.

    “I am 100% passionate about The Human Voice in all its forms:
    singing, speaking, and the verbal interaction between individuals. My life has been about performing, learning about, listening and enjoying the amazing things The Human Voice can do.

    I have the pleasure of learning from great musicians and singers, and the music industry has taught me how large organisations operate, manage and develop their people.

    My aim for Rivington Voice is to offer the best training, performance and coaching services possible to anyone interested in improving their communication- & performance skills or voice - all skills that can transform lives!”
