Whether it's for drama lessons, working in a theatre, finding work in film, or getting onto a BA (Hons) degree in acting or performance, acting classes come with plenty of benefits. Even the very best actors regularly work on their skills.
Of course, becoming an actor isn't the easiest career path so you want to ensure that you're a consummate professional, take pride in your work, and take your drama and creative performance training seriously.
Glasgow has a great connection to the dramatic arts and there are more opportunities for actors than you might think. With the universities and the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland offering acting and drama courses at both undergraduate and postgraduate level, the city is practically churning out potential Oscar winners.
Then there are the professional actors putting on shows at the many theatres around the city. Even if you're not acting in them, it's always a good idea for students to go to the theatre to see what you're up against, especially if you're an aspiring actor looking for work in Glasgow.
Finally, there's film and television. A lot of films and TV have been shot in Glasgow and with Film City Glasgow and BBC Scotland, to name a couple, there are projects for the big and small screen regularly being filmed in Glasgow.
You're a bit spoilt for choice when it comes to learning how to act but while there are plenty of benefits, there are plenty of challenges to overcome so think carefully about how you'll approach your training as an actor.
Some actors may think they're amazing and destinated for the theatre or the silver screen but taking on feedback is the best way to improve your skills. Even a good performance can be improved. Good actors regularly study their performance and seek out information and feedback on how to get better.
Acting is a great way to get involved in the creative arts and whether you're doing your studies at university on an undergraduate or postgraduate course, being taught by a private tutor, or in a production at your local theatre, there'll be opportunities to meet other people working in the industry from around the world.
In both drama courses at school and university, you'll spend years honing your acting skills and making professional connections. It's all well and good being the best actor in the city but if nobody has heard of you or seen you act, you'll never find any work!
You've probably already heard that the life of an actor is no picnic and if you're thinking about committing to acting professionally, you run the risk of spending years improving your acting skills before you get noticed by those in the biz.
The worst thing you can do is underestimate how difficult it is to act well and not taking your development as an actor seriously. As you'll see, acting isn't necessarily easy.
You also need to have thick skin because you and your acting will regularly be criticised and you need to remember that everyone is going to have an opinion. You need to remember that if you're serious about acting and drama, then you need to take the criticism on board, especially when it's from those with experience in theatre, television, or cinema.
The aforementioned criticism isn't going to always be very clear, either. You need to learn from the feedback you get and not let it get to you. Remember that it can take years to make it as an actor so you need to be patient.
Similarly, there's a lot of luck involved. Just because you haven't been noticed yet doesn't mean that you're not talented so don't let it knock your confidence. Keep working on becoming a better actor and keep your chin up.
There's a lot to acting and if you excel in comedic acting, that doesn't necessarily mean you'll immediately be gifted in dramatic delivery so make sure you carefully study every potential avenue to become a better actor. Do your research and take your acting education seriously!
While there are plenty of acting courses around that offer a one-size-fits-all solution to acting lessons, private acting tutorials are all about you and what you want to learn. You can discuss your level with your acting tutor and they can work out what you need to work on, help you run lines for an upcoming audition, or just use their experience for valuable feedback.
Working on getting into a drama school? A private tutor can help you nail the audition or impress your potential teachers.
Looking to work on a particular aspect of your acting? You can work closely with a professional acting tutor to appraise your performance skills and see which parts you need to work on.
The main benefit of private tutorials is the freedom you get in terms of the skills you get to work on so make sure that you pick the right tutor who'll listen to you and work with you to get the most out of your acting lessons.
