At its highest levels of accomplishment acting involves the employment of technique and/or an imaginative identification with the character on the part of the actor/actress. In this way the full emotional weight of situations needs to be communicated to the audience. The actor/ actress must be a sharp observer of life and thoroughly trained in voice projection, enunciation and in body movement.

There are many practitioners within the Performing Arts world with separate ideas on technique and conventions of Acting / Vocal training. Each one has their place in the world and in my personal opinion we should all learn to encompass elements from as many as possible. We should not limit ourselves to one set of conventions and rules when we can easily utilise elements from many experienced practitioners and continually enhance our personal skills.

SPECIALIST AREAS OF TUITION
Performing Arts as a career is one of the hardest professions. You have to deal with Rejection, Criticism, Nerves and Stiff Competition on a regular basis. For some the business is easy and lucky, for most it’s a constant struggle.
I work with students mainly between the age of 14-20 with the aim to prepare them for top Drama school auditions across the country. It is one of my goals as a tutor to help my students evolve creatively. I want to give them the utensils, understanding and skills to ensure they continuously work hard to achieve their limitless potential.
