Chose from the options below.

WESTEND WORKSHOPS

Learn songs and dances from your favourite West End Musicals with a cast member from the show!

These workshops explore the characters, story and themes of your chosen show through dance, singing and acting with an actual cast member. Choose from Mamma Mia, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie or The Sound of Music.


Workshops begin with a fun physical warm up followed by learning dance/movement from the show. This is followed by a full vocal warm up before learning a song from the show. Depending on the length of the workshop, scene work can also be incorporated. Then have all your burning questions answered in a full Q&A to end.


Workshops are a minimum of an hour in length. Please enquire for rates.

SINGING LESSONS

Unlock your vocal potential

Whether you're a total beginner or looking for some pointers all ages and abilities are welcome. 


We will explore musical theatre and pop repertoire which will inspire, motivate and challenge you. Exercises will focus on vocal technique, breath control, musicality and performance. Technique is based on the Estill Model. We will also focus on the performance element of singing in addition to vocal skills.


For younger students I can provide parents with progress reports.

Lessons can be taken by individuals or small groups.

Please enquire for rates.

LAMDA TUITION

Acting, Musical Theatre and Verse & Prose

LAMDA (London Academy of Music and Drama) is the largest Speech and Drama awarding body in the UK. As well as being really fun these exams are useful for students wishing to collect extra UCAS points and is a great extra-curricular to have for university applications. If you are looking to improve your child's public speaking, vocabulary and creativity, I can help with clarity, breathing, projection and confidence!


Lessons begin with a fun warm up followed by games and exercises designed to improve articulation, expression, projection and imagination! Depending on your preference we then work on poems, prose, monologues or musical theatre songs. Exams are usually entered once a year.

I'm proud to have a 100% pass rate with 85% of students achieving Distinction.


Sessions are a minimum of 30 minutes in length and can be for individuals or small groups of children aged from 6+ years old.

Please enquire for rates.

PERFORMANCE COACHING

Audition Technique, Acting Through Song, Text and Character Work

These sessions can be specifically tailored to your requirements.


If you need help preparing for auditions I can help with everything from choosing the best material that will showcase you at your best to dealing with nerves and what to expect from an audition panel.


Acting through song is a vital skill for a musical theatre performer. Learn how to tell the story and engage with the lyrics as an actor as well as a singer.


Work on monologues or text by exploring a characters history, their motivation, physicality and voice. There is no one technique so we can spend time finding out what works for you. From Stanislavski through to Meisner, Uta Hagen and Laban there is a myriad of ways to unlock text and character for you.

Please enquire for rates.
