TALENT MANAGEMENT

AUDITIONS

I help to prepare children for film/TV and theatre auditions.
My students have been incredibly successful in landing many film and television roles over the years. Productions include: ‘At Water’s Edge’ (BBC), CBBC ‘The Dog Ate My Homework,’ ‘Lifebabble’ and ‘Copycats’, NI Screen short films, TV adverts and Public Information Films, the Feature Film ‘The Man Who Invented Christmas’ (2017), Game Of Thrones among many others.
These opportunities are a result of the good relationships I maintain with casting directors across the UK and Ireland.

INDUSTRY LED TUTORING

My students will also benefit from access to professionals working in the TV, Film and Theatre industry.
Recent workshops have included:

  • ‘Acting on Stage’ workshop with Martin Lynch – renowned local playwright and producer
  • ‘Speaking and Acting on Camera’ workshop with Chris Eva
  • ‘Casting’ Q&A with Hayley Russell from Carla Stronge Casting

BESPOKE APPROACH TO TEACHING

I offer a bespoke approach to teaching my students.
Not all of the children and young people that attend speech and drama classes want to be actors; but all of them do need essential communication skills to succeed in life. Perhaps they lack confidence when speaking in public, or even within the classroom on their peer group? Or maybe they want to gain qualifications outside school that will support their applications to university?
Whatever the reason, attending speech and drama classes will focus on the development of excellent interpersonal and communication skills; as well as the providing students with the ability to present themselves in a confident manner, in any given situation.

FUN IS A SERIOUS MATTER

So yes, (and most importantly) Speech and Drama is fun – but a child’s development is a serious matter.
A lot of what I do crosses over with the National Curriculum. Students often tell me that they have an enhanced understanding of literature and language as a result of taking the classes.
Children need investment in developing their self-esteem and self-actualisation. There is no surer return on investment, than that of investing in your child’s development and education.

An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest
