Teaching Drama is one of the great privileges in my life.
After gaining a BA from Theatre Nepean and then a Grad Dip Ed in Secondary Teaching (Drama/English) in 2000, I found myself performing and teaching in the UK. Early acting credits before moving to the UK included work with Company B Belvoir, Q Theatre and Bell Shakespeare. Later, performance and directorial credits included Yellow Earth, Company:Collisons with National Theatre UK, Leicester Haymarket, Oval House Theatre, BBC Radio, Wimbledon Ambassador’s Studio, and Polka Theatre.
Although I’ve taught drama since 2000, last year I offered the Beecroft Drama Workshop for the first time. I loved every second there, meeting and working with the participants. It’s my little haven, a studio dedicated to creative performance for young people. In 2017, I’ll be able to provide additional workshops for younger students. It’s going to be a lot of fun! Have a look at the Workshops page if you would like to join.
There’s also the option of private lessons at my home in West Pennant Hills. I enjoyed coaching junior and senior students during my last three years at PLC Sydney and Loreto Kirribilli, preparing them for Speech examinations, eisteddfods, and inter-school competitions. For those who thrive on challenges, working towards ASCA or AMEB examinations can provide a great scaffold for learning. For further details contact me.
