Personal Tuition

Students are often asked to take drama exams in schools to focus on building their confidence in performance and personal presentation. LAMDA offer exams in many aspects of drama and public speaking and we can offer one-on-one sessions with your child to really help them fine-tune their skills and prepare for the demands of the examination.

We also help children prepare for GCSE and A level Dance and/or Drama as well as ISTD, IDTA, LAMDA, ESB and Guildhall Trinity examinations. If your child is thinking of entering a Dance or Drama festival or has an audition approaching we can also help with their preparation.

If your child finds examinations very stressful (and who doesn’t) sometimes drama can help to boost their confidence by taking them through the situation prior to the event. Please feel free to contact us and discuss your child’s requirements to see if we can help.

Please note that TrapDoor Performing Arts School can only give references for currently enrolled students.
