In my opinion, teaching in the arts is most effective when personalised. The problem with solely learning drama at school or college is the sheer number of other students. This makes it virtually impossible for a tutor to spot specific details in each performers technique that need refinement and improvement.
In an industry where the chances of success are so weighed against you, specialist and personalised advice could and often is the difference between success and failure. I believe that I can offer you up to date, industry tested, professional and affordable tuition.
Whether its an audition or an exam, I will offer you the best advice and tuition possible to help you achieve your goals.
I have been acting and performing since the age of six and am quite a familiar face in the Hampshire theatre scene. Whilst I was studying at Sixth Form College I decided that I would try and go for my dream of becoming a professional actor and started auditioning for Drama Schools. I was delighted to be unconditionally offered degree courses from two Drama UK Accredited Drama Schools, East 15 and The Academy of Live and Recorded Arts, (ALRA). I was also humbled to be offered a bursary from The Mayflower Theatre, Southampton to cover some of the costs of training. I graduated from ALRA in 2017 with a BA (Hons) Acting.
Professional credits include: Detective M (Britain’s Most Evil Killers) – Sky Crime Channel, Mr Banks in Blue Stockings (Mill at the Pier Theatre, Manchester), Luke in Wish List (Hippodrome Theatre, London), Local Ensemble in An Inspector Calls (The Mayflower Theatre), Ginger in Jerusalem (Mill at the Pier Theatre, Manchester), Dame Widow Twanky in Aladdin (UK Tour), Prowdy in Destination Success (UK Tour), The Man in DaDa House (Cabaret Voltaire, Zurich), Aidan in O&C (UK Tour) and Theo in There is a War (Hope Mill Theatre, Manchester). For full credits please look at my Spotlight CV: 6(concealed information)79.
In 2016, I had the privilege of working with the multiple Olivier Award winning RSC director, David Thacker on his production of ‘An Enemy of the People’ at Bolton Octagon Theatre. I have also had the privilege to work with renowned playwrights such as Jim Cartwright and John Godber. I am a former member of the British Academy of Dramatic Combat (BADC) and still hold a Level 1 Award in Stage Combat.
As a side-line to my acting work, I currently teach acting, drama and audition technique privately in the UK and abroad. I also sit on audition panels for theatre companies and some drama schools on a freelance basis. I started teaching privately in 2016 after numerous people approached me for lessons on all aspects of drama from LAMDA Exam preparation to Drama School audition preparation. I have taught for institutions such as KZU, Switzerland / PQA, Southport / Fluid Motion Theatre, Basingstoke / KES, Southampton / Big Mouth Theatre, Hedge End. I am also the Head of Acting for TheatreTrain in Southampton and the onset acting coach for ADBV Media, Preston.
I have full Public Liability Insurance and hold multiple current DBS Certificates. I am also a full member of Equity UK (P(concealed information)/2969838) and you can view my CV and check my credits on my Spotlight CV: 6(concealed information)79. Please do not contact my agent and instead contact me directly for any work in relation to tuition.
I look forward to meeting you soon and get started with helping you achieve your goals in drama.
