Drama school student from Royal Central School of Speech and Drama in London helps you prepare and nail acting (and musical theatre) auditions

Methodology

My name is Faye Weerasinghe and I am currently studying Acting (Musical theatre) at Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. I have taught young beginners before, on growing confidence,using the space and being free. I have also lectured older members on how to succeed at auditions and prepare for them perfectly. Depending on their age I will take them through how to gain confidence, sight read scripts, how to choose a perfect monologue and what songs to stay clear of for auditions. This also works perfectly for someone who just needs help in public speaking ( A level in English lit). I am willing to tutor all ages for someone who is passionate about acting and the industry. I will give you my honest opinion of drama school and if you are fortunate to get in, I will explain some of the possible struggles you might face.

Background

-I taught at Stagecoach early stages
- Did workshops for teenagers looking to auditions
- I have seen many get into drama school, do well in productions and nail audition technique workshops.


I have also been through it all myself so I can sympathise with many who are going through the process.
