LAMDA Graded Examinations

London Academy of Dramatic Art

 

As a London Academy of Dramatic Art (LAMDA) registered tutor Angela offers examinations in communication, performance, Shakespeare, musical theatre as well as introductory level examinations.  I work on a peripatetic basis in local schools as well as privately with individuals, pairs or groups.  If you are a parent, individual or school interested in LAMDA examinations please contact me on the email below.

 

Rates:  £15 per half hour to work one to one, £20 per 45 mins for a pair (£10 each) and £7.50 per hour each for groups of 4, larger groups please contact to discuss.  On average students will require a full term of sessions to prepare for an exam.

 

The exams focus on developing communication, speech, confident body language and self-confidence and can be taken in groups or individually.   The introductory exams start from age 5 and begin to introduce learners to basic communication skills and carry on up to grade 8 in some cases.  For example - Stage One is to perform one poem from memory, and to maintain a short conversation with the examiner about a favourite toy or object. Communicating the sense of the poem, speaking clearly and displaying concentration and an appropriate level of conversation.
