LAMDA exams are much like musical or dance grades but for acting, speaking and musical theatre. The added bonus is that because they are speech and drama based they are recognized by Schools, Colleges, Universities and employers. (With higher grades counting towards UCAS points).
LAMDA training can help build confidence, improve acting and communication skills and is an obvious choice for any child/teen gifted in drama. Both the Acting and Verse & Prose exams require the students to learn and perform two pieces from memory and answer questions on those pieces.
One to one tuition includes:
- Voice and Speech techniques
- Script work using duologues, monologues, poems and LAMDA pieces
- Acting Techniques
All students will have the option to be entered for a LAMDA exam appropriate to their age/ability in either Spring/Summer and or Winter when ready to do so. I complete all admin and will also be there on the day of the exam for support and last minute prep if requested.
Private tuition costs £30 per hour. £15 for half an hour or £10 for 20 minutes.
Payment is due in advance at start of each half term.

What is LAMDA?
LAMDA examinations are run by a London Drama School (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art) throughout the country and are designed to equip candidates with a range of skills that will serve them throughout life. They are the equivalent of musical grades or ballet grades but for speech and drama but have more weight as the higher levels count towards UCAS.
