- Tell me about some of your current students.
I have a 10 year old student who is taking her Musical Theatre exam in January. We picked her pieces together and we have worked weekly one to one on her voice and note learning, the choreogrpahy, the presentation and her confidence. She will pass with flying colours I am sure just like her previous exams!
I have a 24 year old student who wanted to audtion for drama school. With my knowledge of dramas schools and what they offer I was able to advise him on where to apply to begin with. After many one to one sessions including picking the appropiate speeches for him, he audtioned for a handful of leading drama schools with the confidence and knowledge that I had taught him what to expect and he went in with great confidence in the work he had done on his audition pieces. I am happy to announce that he has just been accepted onto the MA acting course at Londons East 15!
