Professional Actor (RSC/West End) & drama school audition panel member offering LAMDA tuition and one-to-one classes in London to help you SMASH your drama school auditions.

Methodology

DRAMA SCHOOL AUDITION PREP

I want my students to go into their drama school auditions feeling full of courage and confidence. Auditioning for drama school can be a daunting experience, but it needn't be. It is a process that can be enjoyed rather than endured.

I'll help you to find the right speeches and we'll work together using professional exercises and techniques to unlock the text until you're speaking the words from a place of authenticity and truth.

We'll play around with the speeches so that you're flexible and able to respond to re-direction.

We'll develop a vocal and physical warm up that you can use prior to and in the build up to your auditions.

We'll talk about nerves and develop individually tailored strategies on how best to combat them.

I'll share with you my inside knowledge from the drama school audition room to make you aware of the pitfalls that I see unsuccessful applicants falling into.

Above all, we will work together, in a relaxed, safe and fun environment to enhance and embolden your work as an actor - giving you the best possible chance of audition success.

LAMDA EXAMS

I can prepare children for:

LAMDA graded examinations in COMMUNICATION.

Speaking Verse and Prose
Reading For Performance
Speaking In Public

LAMDA graded examinations in PERFORMANCE.

Acting

Background

I am a professional actor with over 10 years experience in the industry. I graduated from Guildhall School of Music in Drama in July 2008 and I've worked consistently in theatre ever since.

I've worked at some of the best regional theatres in the country (Theatre Royal Bath, Chichester Festival Theatre, Leeds Playhouse, Liverpool Playhouse, Theatre By The Lake) and for the Royal Shakespeare Company in Stratford Upon Avon. I've also worked in the West End on several occasions, appearing alongside household names such as Alison Steadman, Gemma Arterton and David Haig.

I'm an Equity member and fully DBS (CRB) checked.

Alongside my acting work I have worked in a variety of different teaching and coaching roles. My work has ranged from teaching A-Level Theatre Studies in a secondary school to coaching presentation skills to medical students. Most importantly, I have 5 years experience as an audition panel member at Guildhall School of Music and Drama. I've helped to select students for their BA Acting, MA Acting and Preliminary Acting Courses. I've also worked at the school as an assistant director, helped to develop a series of adult short courses and run workshops for their widening participation department.

Please note - In the spirit of fairness and transparency I ask that ALL students of mine declare to me when they're auditioning at Guildhall School of Music and Drama so that I can ensure I am not on the panel that day. I will NEVER form part of their audition panel and will have no direct involvement in the outcome of their audition beyond the work we do together.

Peter was assistant director on a Shakespeare project I did at Guildhall School of Music and Drama in my second year. He has a great eye for enabling students to learn and do their best work. And he's a lovely guy!

Peter is an amazing acting tutor, he has taught me so much about filling the space of a theatre with my voice and portraying the truth to an audience, whilst also keeping the subtlety’s and details of the text alive. His understanding of writing, especially Shakespeare, is incredible and his guidance is kind and thoughtful. I would thoroughly recommend working with Peter if you want to improve your acting in any way.
