Drama

Private Lessons (Solo)

Students aged between 8-80 can learn Drama. Drama increases self confidence and public speaking skills. Weekly 20, 30 or 45 minute lessons are offered. Students may be working towards Eisteddfod goals, Trinity or AMEB certificate outcomes, or HSC guidelines for performance. A weekly lesson would involve voice warm ups, performing poetry, monologues or impromptu speaking tasks. Preparing for upcoming audition and overcoming and understanding performance anxiety are often the goals of an individual student.

 

Private Lessons (Duo)

A pair of students meet each week to practise scripted work for performance. Period drama, Shakespearian duologues and Improvisational comedic work are all part of the fun of working with another actor. Musical theatre is another enjoyable way of singing and performing with another actor. The cost of a weekly lesson can be shared with 2 people. Minimum lesson duration 30 minutes.
