MUSICAL THEATRE WORKSHOP (Length: 2 hours, Price: £110)

This is a very popular workshop and perfect for dramatic groups who want to expand their knowledge of the genre as well as more experienced groups who want to be challenged. I will teach a musical theatre piece to the group and then stage it. Skills such as acting through song, coordination, musicality (including harmony singing) and vocal technique are all addressed in this workshop. A piano must be provided for me to play on!

AUDITION WORKSHOP FOR ACTORS AND SINGERS (Length: 2 hours, Price: £110)

Learn how to enhance your audition experience to maximise success and promote yourself in the best possible way. I will guide you through audition dos and don'ts and discuss presentation skills, material selection, performance technique and audition etiquette. The session is run in an informal and friendly way and there will be an opportunity for an open session where people can try mock auditions and then receive constructive feedback. For musical theatre auditions I will accompany on piano but a piano must be provided!

SINGING WORKSHOP (Length: 2 hours, Price: £110)

This is the must have course for all aspiring singers. I will give you a lively, interactive 2 hour class covering the fundamentals of good vocal technique, vocal health and maintenance, performing and presenting songs in performances and auditions, advice on voice type, range and song selection. The session is run in an informal and friendly way and there will be an opportunity for an open session where people can perform a song or a section of a song and then receive constructive feedback. I will accompany on piano but a piano must be provided!

CHEATS PIANO WORKSHOP (Length: 2 hours, Price: £110)

This workshop is aimed at people with little or no experience playing the piano, or for piano students who are frustrated with slow progress and want to fast track themselves to play more tunes faster. It is ideal for singers who want to grasp some piano basics in order to accompany themselves and become more musically aware. I will show you how to master chords and rhythms to achieve results fast and inspire you to develop your musical knowledge further. The workshop is fast paced but fun and interactive too! Provision of a piano is a must for this workshop!

TEAM AND CONFIDENCE BUILDING FOR BUSINESS (Length: 1 hour, Price: £75)

This one hour workshop is fast paced and fun, encouraging people to grow in confidence and work as a team through participating in various drama games and exercises. The idea is to help people shed some inhibitions and step outside their comfort zones in order to enhance presentation skills and life skills too! A willingness to have a go is a must!

VOICE AND SPEECH WORKSHOP (Length: 2 hours, Price: £110)

This workshop is useful for both dramatic groups wishing to study voice for acting purposes and also for businesses seeking to improve employee delivery and projection in a presentation or public speaking scenario. Learn how to project, colour and manipulate the voice to produce engaging, powerful performances that will captivate audiences. The workshop is friendly and informal and there will be an open session at the end where anyone who wishes to can present a piece of their choosing and receive coaching and feedback.
