I’m Maartje Monné and founder of Voice Care & Coaching.
Do you remember Disney’s ‘The Little Mermaid’ & ‘The Sound of Music’? Well, that’s where it all began!
When I was little, I was a very shy girl. I loved to sing, but it took me finally 16 years before I had the guts to get on stage at highschool, and I loved it!
Without getting into detail, I decided to study Speech Language Therapy and to specialize myself in voice, and voice related, disorders & techniques after that. I also studied Musical Theater to develop my singing, dancing, acting and stage skills, which where some of the best years of my life!
After this I opened my own voice practice in the Netherlands, which was a great success!
But then, in 2010, I made the decision to move to the south of France and live with the love of my life. I had to start everything from the beginning. I didn’t even speak French at that time and the culture was a lot different from mine, so I began to work at Airbus Helicopters in order to build up my new life in France (yes, it takes a lot of time to immigrate, I can tell you that).
And than there was that moment, in 2019, where I felt very ready to start my own company again; Voice Care & Coaching. This time voice work feels more than a passion to me; I will go WAY deeper!
So let's start to make magic with your own voice; your superpower!
