Professional Actor (RSC/National Theatre/West End) gives one-to-one classes for Drama School Auditions!

Methodology

I'm a gentle and relaxed tutor who tailors classes to the individual requirements of students. I've been preparing students for Drama School Entrance auditions for 5 years - previous pupils have accepted places at RADA and LAMDA!

DRAMA SCHOOL AUDITIONS.
- Practical working of speeches.
- Verse speaking technique.
- Voice work (inc. breath support, articulation, range, resonance etc)
- Suggested pre-audition vocal warm-ups.
- Advice on speech choice.
- Guidance on audition procedure.

I have also experience preparing younger students for NYT and Sylvia Young auditions.
_______________________________________________________________________________________

All classes are available 1 hour, 1.5 and 2 hour sessions.

During the week I prefer to teach at my home in Finchley - at the weekend am happy to travel if it's preferable (Finchley, Archway, Highgate, Camden, Angel, South Kensington, Sloane Square, Chelsea, Westminister etc).

Background

I graduated LAMDA in July 2012 and have been preparing students for the Drama School audition circuit ever since. Some of my previous students have accepted places at RADA, LAMDA etc.

I continue to work as a professional actor; last year I was in the West End/BBC production of HAMLET (with Andrew Scott) and MARY STUART (with Juliet Stevenson). I've also performed with the RSC, National Theatre, NTScotland, Bath Theatre Royal, Birmingham REP, Manchester Royal Exchange and around the world in China and Russia. In 2016 I took the title role in a $12M IMAX movie that filmed in the Amazon Rainforest - it's currently being shown in IMAX cinemas all over the USA.

Felicity

Calum has a naturally calming personality that cannot be taught. I was extremely nervous before auditioning for drama school but with calum's impressive knowledge and constructive teaching I flew through all my auditions, getting many recalls and eventually a place at a top drama school. I Would highly recommended him to anyone seeking acting help. He will go that extra mile for you and genuinely wants to extract your best potential.

I have known Calum Finlay for over ten years. He is extremely trustworthy and fantastic to collaborate with. I have witnessed him being a very patient and tutor. We have worked on several theatrical projects together, and he has always worked diligently to ensure the project success.

I have seen him teach 1:1 and also in a group and Calum's technique is very adaptable to who he is working with.

His impressive work ethic and passion is the reason I would recommend him to anyone!

Emma

I've worked with Calum as a actor, writer, director and workshop facilitator and he is a wonderful person to work with. He is committed and encouraging, putting the emphasis on whatever it is you are working on, whether that be a piece of text, an improvisation or an idea, developing your skills as a performer rather than fixing your flaws.

Because he has worked with such a interesting and varied group of theatre companies and directors (RSC, Told By An Idiot, Robert Icke), he has an immense amount of knowledge to give to a pupil who is starting to delve into their own interests in plays and theatre or if you just want to build your confidence. He is very industry savy and can help with your professional development.

I would also reccomend working with Calum because he is kind, patient and fun.
