Drama and Theatre Arts subjects are a fantastic way to help improve your overall confidence and improve your creative abilities. All of my students have passed their LAMDA exams with either a Merit or a Distinction Award. While I do encourage my students to take exams in Acting,Public Speaking and Verse and Prose,it is not essential to do. I also help students prepare for interviews to Secondary Schools and Colleges.
