Simon - Central Worcester - School English

Methodology

Hello, I'm Simon, and whether you are an actor or a drama student, or if you have to use your voice a lot as part of your job, I can help you develop your vocal skills so that you can use your voice effectively whilst maintaining your vocal health.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

Voice Coaching
Voice and Text
Accent and Dialect Coaching
Accent Softening
Speech and Drama including preparation for LAMDA examinations
Acting Skills and Audition Preparation
'A' level and GCSE Drama
Key Stage 3 English (in your home)

- Tell me about your qualifications.

MA (with Commendation) in Professional Voice Practice from the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire (School of Acting), Birmingham City University (2016)
PGCE Drama in Education from Birmingham Polytechnic (now BCU) (1988)
BA (Hons.) in Drama and Theatre Arts from University of Birmingham (1986)

- How much do you charge?

I charge £40 per hour for all practical subjects, and this includes the cost of studio hire. I offer a free initial consultation session with no commitment.

Book five lessons and only pay for four if payment is made in advance.

Half-hour Speech and Drama (LAMDA) lessons available for £20 per lesson.

I charge £25 for Key Stage 3 English, but I will come to you and this will be taught in your own home

- Where do you teach?

I offer classes in a spacious studio that I hire at a Performing Arts school close to my home in West Worcester, or an alternative space in the northern end of the city. Alternatively I can come to you if you are within a 30-mile radius of Worcester (apart from Key Stage 3 English, which will be taught in your own home).
.
There is an additional £10 charge if I travel 10-20 miles to come to you, and an additional £20 charge if I travel 20-30 miles to come to you.

- When are you available?

As I currently work away from Worcester Monday to Wednesday, I am generally available on Thursdays, Fridays, or else at weekends, subject to studio availability.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I will teach any age from 8 upwards.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I am able to prepare students for LAMDA Speech and Drama exams if desired.
I also have many years experience of teaching GCSE and 'A' level Drama,

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I can coach Voice via Skype in required.

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have experience of Voice and Accent teaching to both undergraduate and postgraduate Acting students at drama schools such as Rose Bruford College and the Bridge Theatre Training Company in London.

Before completing my MA, I had taught Drama and Performing Arts for 27 years. Having spent ten years as a Lecturer in Drama at Kidderminster College, I was Head of Drama at the King's School in Worcester from 1998 until 2015.

I have recently spent a year as a part-time Lecturer in Drama and Acting at New College, Swindon and I am currently working as an actor and as a supply teacher in Worcestershire schools.

I previously trained as a director at Bristol Old Vic Theatre School and have extensive experience as an actor and director.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Yes (Enhanced), and I am registered with the update service

- Where and with whom did you train?

Royal Birmingham Conservatoire (School of Acting)
Bristol Old Vic Theatre School

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

I am full member of Equity as well as the British Voice Association.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

As a voice coach I am currently working with members of Wolverhampton University's Arts Connect team as well as other private clients who wish to improve and develop their speaking voice for personal or professional reasons. At the moment I am giving audition coaching to a client auditioning for drama schools and to a graduate of an Acting degree course who wishes to receive more individually focused tuition.
