What drives me first, last and always in my work
is a dedication to providing nothing but the best quality tuition for you and / or your child.
I am passionate about adhering to the highest of standards, and have seen too many promising performers let down by teachers with inadequate knowledge and a lack of relevant qualifications to allow the same to happen with my own pupils and clients. For me, drama tuition should not be exemplified by endless 'improvisations' whilst the supervisor checks facebook, or a lazy affirmation of brilliance without tackling the 'nitty gritty' of performance.
It should explore nothing but the very best texts, match roles to the specific personal abilities of each performer, encourage a deeper visceral and intellectual connection with literature, and strengthen personal confidence and self-esteem. Properly taught, drama lessons should be life-enhancing, and in many cases, may prove life-changing.
I have taught in a range of educational spheres for twenty years, and am devoted to
revolutionising and broadening arts provision beyond traditional confines.
I believe that excellence is available to all, and whether the ambition is to become a professional performer,
to pass a public exam, or to become a more proficient communicator,
I can guarantee that your tuition will be classy, detailed, fun, and tailored to your needs.
