Speech and Drama

Speech and Drama training is our core programme as is available through private lessons and group lessons. 

  • Voice training is key with all the fundamentals of the craft including posture, breathing, relaxation, projection and articulation.
  • Techniques of interpretation include how to use the voice most effectively through variations in pitch, inflection, tone, pace, volume and pause.
  • Voice training is through good literature with students given a wide variety of texts to stretch their imaginations
  • Verse-speaking is fundamental as students learn to convey mood, meaning and feeling.
  • Storytelling is another fundamental and students are exposed to storytelling in all genres and from around the world
  • Mime and movement - “Free the body, free the voice”
  • Public speaking: students are taken through the steps: brainstorming a topic, writing a speech, performing a speech, creating a slide deck and integrating it into the performance
  • Debate preparation and procedure
  • Acting styles including improvisation
  • History of theatre and periods of literature
