So you like to watch the latest drama on telly or the new blockbuster in the cinema.... but do you know who cast it? Do you have a favourite actor? Whats your favourite play and who wrote it? These questions may sound simple and actually they are regarding our industry, but you'd be surprised...
The great theatre practitioner Stanislavsky said, "Create your own method. Don't depend slavishly on mine. Make up something that will work for you! But keep breaking traditions, I beg you." I tell my students that acting is reacting, being in tune with the world around you and being in tune...
I have always considered myself to be a creative person and believe that there is creative potential in all people (Guildford 1987 p.36). This is also supported by Michael Rosen, who states that we are all born as ‘reflective and interactive beings’ (Rosen, pg 10) and all have creative...
All the well-known classical violinists have their own personal, identifiable tone. There are people that sound similar because of how they were trained, but everyone has different techniques, fingers, hands, arms, and brains - even if they played on the exact same instrument and with the same...
Playing the piano involves using the fingers - even children soon realise that fists (or, occasionally, the feet) are not the most efficient way of depressing piano keys to make music. Fingers sit on the two hands in a particular order, and each finger behaves differently, for example, the thumb...
“Ces nymphes, je les veux perpetuer” “These nymphs, I wish to perpetuate them” It is an interesting way start to a poem, given that it is not really a start at all. “These nymphs”? Which nymphs is he talking about? There is evidently something that has been happening, but it has only...

In the very beginning of trying to explore our vocal potential, it is essential to completely exclude the movement of shoulders whilst we are breathing. The majority of vocal teachers of the past emphasised the importance of involving the lower part of the lungs in the process of breathing for...
I remember as a seven year old, asking my parents if I could learn the violin. A peripatetic teacher had performed in our school assembly and about 8 pupils from my class...
We all know that learning to play the piano helps to develop discipline, co-ordination, patience, and our cultural lives. However, not many of us know when it is the best time...
