Speech and Drama lessons

7 - 18 years

Speech and Drama lessons help your child to learn to improve their listening, discussion and communication skills, improve their speech, build confidence, extend social skills and develop their talent, creativity, resourcefulness and perception. My lessons follow both the Trinity College London and NZ Speech Board syllabi, with exams available for those who wish to pursue them.

Lessons cover a variety of topics and skills including: 
* Exercises to improve voice control, resonance, tone, articulation, pace, pause, volume and inflection
* Drama - both plays and excerpts from plays
* Poetry recitation
* Prose recitation
* Sight reading - a valuable life-skill
* Talks - including picking the subject, designing the talk and presentation
* Mime
* Improvisation
* Role-playing
