« My daughter, age 15, had drama lessons with Kirsty for a year to prepare her for auditions. Kirsty rehearsed modern monologues and Shakespeare in fun and innovative ways. Grace loved her lessons and always came away from the classes excited about what she had done and looking forward to the next lesson. Grace’s confidence grew dramatically as a result of these lessons and we found Kirsty to be an honest and trustworthy teacher. We would have no hesitation in recommending Kirsty or starting lessons with her again if she was back in the UK. F Carroll, London »

Methodology

I taylor specific workshops or lessons for individuals or groups, specialising in Shakespeare/ Improvisation/ Ensemble Theatre/ Audition Prep/ English Dialect Coaching/ Voice and Text/ Acting - depending on the goals and aims of my students. I have worked extensively as an actress and coach and love helping people to improve their skill set and build up their confidence.

Background

I have been working as a professional actress in England over ten years, performing at theatres which include National Theatre, the Royal Shakespeare Company and Shakespeare's Globe. In New York I have performed at St Ann's Warehouse and The Lincoln Center. I have also performed in television shows for BBC and ITV. I am an associate teaching artist for the National Youth Theatre of Great Britain, where I run intake auditions for the company and masterclasses on audition technique/ ensemble theatre/ acting. I also coach students who are auditioning for drama school, working on their audition pieces with them.

My daughter, age 15, had drama lessons with Kirsty for a year to prepare her for auditions.

Kirsty rehearsed modern monologues and Shakespeare in fun and innovative ways. Grace loved her lessons and always came away from the classes excited about what she had done and looking forward to the next lesson.

Grace’s confidence grew dramatically as a result of these lessons and we found Kirsty to be an honest and trustworthy teacher.

We would have no hesitation in recommending Kirsty or starting lessons with her again if she was back in the UK.

Kirsty is amazing teacher and is very reliable with her work. Kirsty is very friendly and has a real passion for her students to achieve their best. Kirsty teaching methods and planning are great. She was my drama tutor and I managed to pass in college because of her enthusiasm and variety in her teaching.

Anja

Kirsty has a wonderful teaching manner. She taught our son English. He felt motivated to do better, studied more under her expert guidance and moved up a set in class.

Kirsty also provided improvisation theatre and acting classes to us as a family of four. I cannot recommend this highly enough to any family who wants to explore creativity and expression together - none of us did any acting otherwise but Kirsty had a real knack at making as all feel comfortable and be creative together. We had so much fun! We all miss Kirsty and her lessons!
