Private Coaching with a Professional Actor / Director
Being accepted into drama school can be very difficult - most drama schools receive more than 3000 applications for around 20 places.

Audition coaching is designed to give you the ability to enter an audition room as the best version of you, enabling you to give your most engaging performance, to ultimately give you the best possible opportunity of being successfully accepted into drama school.
We will help you to:
- Select speeches that suit you and play to your strengths.
- Investigate the text and explore ways in which you can become the character, drawing on your own unique qualities.
- Go through the audition process to make it much less daunting and to allow you to feel like you can afford to be playful, so you can feel at your most confident and creative when you enter the audition room, and actually enjoy it.
