BA Hons Acting and Community Theatre from East 15 Acting School
Instruments: Singing
Genre/Style(s): Singing- musical theatre, pop, soul.
Ability Levels: Beginners only


In a typical first lesson we would first discuss what kind of thing you/ your children would like to get out of the lessons- be it just enjoying singing/ drama and wanting to learn some more, developing further with the view of auditioning or just gaining more confidence. Or any other reasons you might choose! We'll then have a chat about the kind of things you would like to cover, what kind of music- pop, musical theatre, soul, jazz? Or any specific plays or emotions you would like to look at through drama. Also, whether you would like to work towards something like exams or a small performance.
Both singing and drama sessions will start with some warm ups- this is really important for both singing and drama as it prepares not just your body and mouth but also your mind for the work ahead. Warm ups would typically last about 10 or 15 minutes. We'd then more on to the main body of the work, working on pieces or specifically preparing something, for example a speech that you might have to make at work and need some coaching for.
Lessons would last for 45 minutes and would take place in your home (or mine, in Lightwater) depending on whether you have a place to work at home without too many distractions. The cost for a 45 minute session is £15. I choose to work for 45 minutes initially as often people don't realise how tiring this kind of thing can be on your voice and for initial sessions it's preferable to not push to a whole hour.
About me; I'm a trained actress and singer and in the past have worked on various plays (particularly improvised theatre and comedy) and various films and TV shows (Harry Potter, Eastenders, Outcasts, The Bill to name a few). I trained for 3 years at East 15 Acting School which is one of the top drama schools in the UK and the only school which specialises in method acting. I haven't been acting now for a year as I wanted to focus on teaching and in that time set up Sense Theatre, which specialises in building children's confidence through the performing arts.
