My teaching method comes down to the requirements of my students. If you need help with a monologue for an audition, want to work on a scene from a play, improve your screen acting, or if you're interested in exploring improvisation and learning more about theatre practitioners such as Stanislavski or Meisner - I can tailor my class to you.
The best thing to do is message me about what you're interested in and I can send you a suggestion of how we can work on it!
I am a professional actor with 7 years in the Theatre and TV industry. I have performed in lead roles at several leading theatres including: Hampstead Theatre, Chichester Festival Theatre and Sheffield Crucible.
I have also been teaching for the last 5 years at a number of respected establishments including: Emil Dale Academy and Kingdom Drama School. I sit on the audition panel at Emil Dale and so can give excellent inside advice on getting into drama school to study acting or musical theatre.
I am offering great rates for online classes and will now be travelling to people's homes.
My rate for individual online classes is £35 per hour.
And for group classes the rate increases by just £15.00 per person - which is negotiable depending on the number of students in a class.
Cancellation is free up to 24 hours in advance. Students will be required to pay the full amount if they cancel within 24 hours of the class.

Perfect! My daughter Maria has been taking Drama lessons with Adam this year. His profesionalism and passion is evident in every lesson as my daughter always enjoys her time and the learnings in Drama through Adam's teachings. Being a proffesional actor helps him to understand the journey of a student and identify the best methodology to use with the student. His proffesionalism, always flexible and ready to help with needed are quite strong. However, I put the biggest emphasis in his strong skills to share the knowledge of Drama into the child and help her (in this case my daughter) to gain confidence in herself as a potential drama professional.
Maria is a wonderful student. Very talented and full of enthusiasm. A joy to work with.
Perfect! Adam is very knowledgeable, personable and helpful. He knows all the steps you need to take to achieve your acting goal.
Sharon organised weekly classes for her son Jake. Sharon is great to deal with, she gave me a good understanding of Jake's needs and set the classes and payments up really efficiently. She clearly cares a lot about Jake's progress as an actor but also gives him space to grow.
Perfect! Adam is an amazing teacher.
His is able to tailor our season to what will personally be of most benefit. His patience and wealth of knowledge made me feel comfortable immediately. Really looking forward to our next lesson!
Aisha is great to work with. She is a brilliant listener, is very astute and really throws herself into exercises. Aisha picks up ideas and practices quickly and also draws on her own experience when working creatively. Excellent student!
Adam is an excellent teacher. He creates a fun atmosphere in his classes and achieves great results. I would absolutely recommend him!
Work with Adam! He has an engaging, creative, methodical and fun approach to acting and his students get so much from his classes. Can’t recommend him highly enough.
Adam is an excellent tutor and extremely trustworthy. He is always on time and well prepared. He will change and adapt his lesson plan to suit the needs of each and every student. He’s also very presentable and has great manners.
