Want to become a better actor? Or want to dramatically improve social interactions? The key is listening.
During an interview Clint Eastwood was asked; “What’s the most important thing an actor needs to have?” To which Eastwood immediately replied: “The ability to listen.”
The better you listen the more truthful your reactions to the stimuli.
It’s been a fun and productive first term in the new studio space. We were pleased when our established students gave the new studio a big thumbs up when classes commenced this term.
The new students who commenced classes this term have worked hard, enjoyed themselves, learned some valuable lessons and turned in some good work.
The advanced teen and adult students on many occasions pulled off some outstanding performances.
Keep up the good work. You make me proud to be your tutor.
Term 2 classes complete week ending Saturday 30 June.
Term 3 classes return from Tuesday 17 July to Saturday 21 July.
It would be greatly appreciated if all students returning for Term 3 post a $50.00 fee deposit as we are still recovering financially from the short notice move to the new Level 2 studios.

Born in Scotland Simon trained at Cambridge University and when he moved to Australia he graduated with an MFA in Voice from NIDA.
Simon is known for his good humour, specificity and rigour in teaching voice and dialects to actors and business people alike.
