« Perfect! Calum managed to secure my daughter a drama scholarship for her sixth form in just a few lessons. His knowledge is current and extensive. He recommended material and knew how to get to know the characters involved. My daughter felt a bit apprehensive at first about a webcam lesson but was put at ease immediately. I think he is a natural teacher...I could not recommend hm more strongly. »

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.

Perfect! As a tutor Calum is very helpful, professional and accommodating, while as a professional in theatre he has a lot to offer and provides useful information and clear instruction.

Calum is very supportive, you feel absolutely comfortable asking him for help or advice at any time. The help doesn’t stop at the end of the lesson. He pays a lot of attention, perceives things very acutely and works his way around who you are and how you experience acting, gives you the freedom and confidence to explore. I must honestly say that I had lost a bit of the joy I used to have when I first started acting and was surprised when I started to feel it again working with him, to my greatest joy. If you don’t have fun in it, there is just no point in doing it. You have fun, you are pushed and supported. Most importantly, you trust yourself to go further and put the work in because you know you are believed in. He is, in my humble opinion, the best tutor you could ever have. I can do nothing else but recommend him a thousand times.

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!
