If you have ever wanted to act then this video course is for you. I have taught speech and drama since 1994 and I've entered pupils for various drama exams with LAMDA, New Era Academy and Victoria College and also helped pupils who have entered Trinity College exams. Pupils have appeared in TV series and performed Shakespeare with the Brownsea Open Air Theatre. One of my pupils was awarded the Sir Roger Moore Award for the highest Honours in Grade 8 (Gold Medal) Acting exam with the New Era Academy in 2010.
This course has been designed so that you can hop from one lecture to another they are not dependent upon each other, this makes improving your acting skills much easier for you as you can concentrate on the skills you need to.
