Drama skills: acting, storytelling, public speaking, text analysis, writing
Studying for an audition and want some help working on monologues or duologues? Wanting to induce a more dramatic performance in to your song? Interested in how drama skills can help your public speaking/presentation and communication skills? Or just generally curious about anything drama or acting related - whether it's about analysing a text, writing your own script or delving more into any of the many methods you can use to develop your skills as an actor an performer? Then I might be able to help you! I'm a professional actor, trained at Cygnet Theatre in Exeter, now living in London. I have extensive experience performing in immersive theatre - communicating, catching and holding the attention of a wide variety of people. I also have experience in storytelling, working with and teaching children of all ages, as well as writing and producing theatre. Starting drama classes as a teenager was one of the most important things I ever did. It help me build confidence, develop empathy and ground me as the person I am today. I love performing and creating experiences for my audience - watching their faces as they're surprised, entertained or disgusted by the stories I tell. But just as important as that is the opportunity to share some of the tools I learned from drama school with other people - tools that can be used every day in communication, emotional regulation and play. I am more than happy to tailor classes to your specific needs, so if you think I can help you out, get in touch and we will talk!

Have you always wanted to learn how to dance but didn't know where to start? Do you have some dancing experience but need to work on your confidence or boost your skills / technique? Come and dance with me! My classes are for adults of any age and ability who want to learn to dance, or for anyone who already has dance experience but wants to explore themselves more as a soloist. I aim to develop your confidence with movement and body awareness throughout our sessions, and also work on your freestyling, skills picking up choreography, or even help you choreograph something of your own if you wish! My personal approach to dance is bringing fun to it! If you don't enjoy yourself, you won't continue to learn. Having fun is key to progressing, and we will get to improve technique and confidence along the way! My sessions are an hour long but 15 mins of those minutes are dedicated to warming up, cooling down and also discussing your day / week and your mental state before we start. This is so we can use the thoughts and feelings of the day as tools for our session to help release tension and boost your energy! The meaty part of the session will focus on some techniques, movement and music exploration and short choreographed combinations. Dance with me, let's set some goals together and find the joy of movement!

Laura
Pedal and Lever harp lessons, in person in SE London or online
I always make sure all pupils enjoy their lessons giving a friendly and fun approach to them. Regardless of age and skill level I want my students to be able to enjoy their time practicing and playing. I can prepare students for all grades of the ABRSM or other boards exams and I complement the lessons with music theory and aural skills training when needed. I can also offer music theory lessons that being to complement music education, prepare for the ABRSM music theory exams or just to expand the knowledge in that area. The approach for in-person and online tuition are quite similar. I effectively teach using both methods with great results in both. When online, I make sure they are of exceptional quality and the pupil gets the same results they would get in person. They are ideal if traveling is a limitation for the student or just want to take them from the comfort of their home using their own instrument. If preferred, I can also give the lesson in Spanish.
