LAMDA Musical Theatre Classes

Singing teacher Georgia Gray and Performance and English teacher Harriet Phillimore join forces to bring you Musical Theatre Classes in English. This is a quality children’s programme teaching an English-immersion Musical Theatre class. The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA) exam curriculum is part of the programme.

Students learn singing and acting techniques, with the aim to:

  • improving their performance skills,
  • build self-confidence, and
  • learn communication skills that will stick with them for life.

There is also be an optional opportunity to prepare for and sit the LAMDA Musical Theatre exams in Paris. These take place in December and June.

Quality Children’s Programme

Harriet and Georgia both believe strongly in providing a quality education for their students. Therefore, classes are small, with a maximum number of 10 children each. Each week’s class is clearly structured, building on the previous weeks’ work. We select songs and texts to work on that are appropriate for each class, while fun games and activities teach the more abstract technical skills of singing and acting.

Harriet and Georgia are both native English speakers, so classes are taught in full English immersion. As a result, the class is an excellent opportunity for your child to improve and become more confident in their English skills.

What is LAMDA?

The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts is a highly respected educational institution. It is likewise known for its widely acclaimed examinations.

“LAMDA exams are about achievement – recognising and rewarding the endeavours of each individual – but they are also about empowerment. Our ultimate aim is to provide all people with the opportunity to develop the life skills they need to be a success: attributes such as self-confidence and the ability to communicate clearly and present ideas…Across the globe, our examinations unite learners of all ages, abilities, backgrounds and cultures in enthusiasm for the English language and a desire to develop skills for life.” (Text from: www.lamda.ac.uk)

Students in our classes will have the option of sitting these exams if they wish to.
