One of the UK’s oldest and most respected awarding bodies. LAMDA exams are about achievement – recognising and rewarding the endeavours of each individual. The LAMDA performance examinations in both Acting and Musical Theatre use drama to develop self confidence, physical presence and a strong speaking voice. For those with a passion for drama, the examinations provide the opportunity to nurture natural abilities and encourage students to develop their skills and talent grade by grade, whilst having fun.
The examinations take place in Belfast 3 times a year, November, February and May.
The exams involve performing two contrasting monologues from memory, demonstrating an understanding of the material, vocal skills and use of the performance space. Students will also be asked questions about their pieces (characters/location etc) which we will work on in class. As you work up the Grades, a little more is required.
Students are awarded an official LAMDA certificate as well as constructive feedback in a written report to help them advance to the next level. LAMDA Grade 6 and above are further recognised within the UCAS tariff system for those wishing to move on to further education.
Kat Reagan looks forward to meeting new students who will work towards examinations by the London College of Music
Musical Theatre grades offer students the opportunity to develop their performance skills on a one to one basis. The material covered is chosen, by the teacher, to specifically suit each individual child and their strengths and weaknesses. Each grade asses the performance of a given number of songs and marks are distributed for acting, vocal technique, movement and overall performance. Exams take place in winter, spring or summer and UCAS points are awarded from grade 6 upwards.
Classes will be 30 mins.
