Ben has been working with my daughter on her A Level Drama practical acting skills and supporting her in preparing for auditions. He has introduced her to new techniques such as actioning to help develop clear objectives within characters. Ben is friendly and encouraging. I would definitely recommend him.

Ben Ashton has been teaching me since I was 12 and I am now 18 and am continuing to use Ben in one to one sessions for Drama school auditions.

Ben has helped me achieve distinction in all my LAMDA exams up to and including grade 8.

Ben is very reliable and is always happy to help at any time and is very good at uncovering the best way to work with the student depending on how they work as an individual.

Ben has taught LAMDA to my son for several years. He is a calm, patient and kind teacher who really seeks to understand his pupils and the types of pieces that would suit them. He really helps students develop their own ideas but guides them as to what will help then to achieve good marks.
I would highly recommend him as a drama teacher

Ben has tutored my daughter for many years through her LAMDA exams. He is a superb tutor and completely trustworthy. I can recommend Ben highly.

I had Acting lessons with Ben last year as I prepared for my Drama School auditions and I couldn’t recommend him highly enough. He taught me so many helpful techniques that I will carry with me throughout my acting career and he explained things incredibly well. Also, Ben is a very caring person who truly wants you to do your best and progress as a performer.

Ben is an excellent teacher who has an enthusiasm that rubs off on his students. He encourages his students to do their best and teaches them to reflect on their work positively.

I know Ben through his provision of coaching to my daughter for her drama school auditions. As a result of his guidance, patience and expertise she develop her confidence to analyse, choose audition pieces and connect with the emotional stories behind her chosen characters. The end result being 2 offers from 2 drama schools with a wait-listed position from a third! She is now happily enrolled on her BA Acting course - and as a family I know that we will stay connected with Ben always. I would highly recommend him, and do, as a wonderful teacher and coach for anyone thinking of pursuing a future in the performing arts.

I studied public speaking for two years from grades 6 to 8. When I started, I was very shy and extremely nervous, but then Ben helped me out of my shell and taught me all the right techniques to writing a strong speech, performing the speech with confidence and understanding technical terms. I really recommend Ben as a tutor; he’s been such a great help and I’ve learned a lot from him.

Ben is an exceptionally good teacher, he fills you with the confidence you need to be the best actor you can. He’s very detailed and spends a lot of time thoroughly going through every detail on your lesson carefully so you get the absolute best understanding of your character, motives and the play. He goes above and beyond to be the most supportive teacher he can, he played a vital role in getting me into Italia Conti! Such a genuine, lovely, lovely man. Highly recommend.
