As we stand of the brink of our first LAMDA examinations of the 2023/24 academic year, I’m reflecting on what the children have learnt and the benefits of our lessons.
It’s true that every child gains from the experience of going onstage and performing to an audience, or in this case, an Examiner. Some thrive under the glare of the theatre lights, and others find it utterly nerve-wracking. But the more practice they get, the easier it becomes to manage those nerves: being well prepared helps you to be confident! And what parent/guardian doesn’t want a confident child?
LAMDA lessons offer pupils the opportunity to develop communication skills in a fun way. We offer a range of syllabi, from Acting to Musical Theatre, Verse and Prose to Speaking in Public, Reading for Performance to Shakespeare. There really is something for everyone!
Whichever the pupils’ preference, they develop performance skills. Pupils learn how to project their voices, breathe properly, modulate their tone, speak with clear diction, explore a range of emotions, use body language to demonstrate character, when to give and when to take focus. Learning to express themselves creatively is a wonderful experience!
