The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA) is one of the oldest drama schools in the United Kingdom.
LAMDA examinations are designed to equip candidates, whatever their age or aspirations, with a range of skills that will serve them throughout life. The range of exam options supports progression and allows the candidate to extend personal and vocational skills whilst realising their potential.
LAMDA examinations are for those students who wish to take their Dynamix training a little further in either Acting or Musical Theatre. LAMDA exams are highly regarded at all levels and higher level LAMDA examinations can be used to obtain UCAS points for university entry.
Musical Theatre For The Actor/Singer
This exam focuses primarily on the performance of a song in its context. It teaches good singing technique and allows the student to develop as a performer whilst learning popular songs from the musicals. I have found these to be highly enjoyable exams as the teacher and student are free to choose their own material and enter into a discussion on their character, the mood of the piece and its context.
LAMDA examinations in Acting are designed to develop the skills necessary to communicate dramatic text to an audience. These exams are for children of 9 years and upwards. They perform monologues taken from children’s drama. The exams teach good acting and performance technique and are great for building confidence and knowledge of the performance process.
Classes take part on a Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evening, times to suit everyone.
Exams are held in Swansea or Llechryd Village Hall, all exams have a fee.
