We find that private tuition is very beneficial if children have specific diction problems or lack of clarity in their speech. This will often support the recommendations of a Speech Therapist. A few private sessions can have a transforming effect and give a child enough confidence to join one of our drama groups. When speech exercises are done in the context of drama and drama games children usually find them fun.
The sessions take place in Dartington and can last for half an hour or one hour, depending on the young person’s age. The cost per hour is £45.00.

Parent – Harbertonford
“Our daughter has been taught by Gerald and Lucia from Year 5 to Year 10. She has recently achieved Grade 6 Acting but the benefits extend beyond the grades. Drama lessons have enhanced her confidence at all levels. I would recommend LAMDA drama lessons to all.”
