BIGLITTLE Theatre School offers private, one to one vocal coaching to students from age 5 upwards.
At Mini and Junior level we offer a choice of exam syllabus with students either able to follow the Associated Board of The Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) or LAMDA musical theatre route.
At Intermediate and Senior level students are able to continue following the LAMDA musical theatre exam syllabus, and also train and prepare for prospective drama school entry post year 13 or GAP.
Lessons cost £15.50 per half hour, but are bookable only on a termly basis of either 5 or 10 lessons per term with payment made in advance.
Due to the popularity of these lessons and constant demand priority is given, particularly at Intermediate and Senior level to those students who are members of one of our Youth Theatre companies.
Please contact the office to check availability and book.

Lessons are taught by Musical Director and Vocal Coach Ian Carter.
The lessons focus on technique and repertoire and include practice, learning and optional entry into singing examinations. We offer the choice of the ABRSM or the LAMDA Musical Theatre Syllabus.
ABRSM is the exam board of the Royal Schools of Music offering world-renowned qualifications which are recognised internationally. Following the syllabus builds the foundations of success and provides the building blocks of musical development.
The exams motivate students of all levels and ages, giving them a series of realistic goals and tangible rewards for their achievements. Students are able to progress through the grades with the option to take examinations.
LAMDA is the UK’s largest statutory speech and drama awarding body, and has a reputation for excellence across the globe. The exams are designed to assess a learner’s ability to use the voice both as a tool and to assist in the delivery of a strong and believable performance.
Learners who prepare themselves appropriately will develop: Increased self-confidence, developed knowledge of the genre and an understanding of how music conveys mood or feeling.

INTERMEDIATE & SENIOR
AGES : 11+
Singing lessons for students aged 11 and upwards are given by our music supervisor Colin Billing.
Colin has a vast experience of coaching in the world of professional musical theatre including many London drama schools. He uses methods borrowed from the Bel Canto school of singing and has over the years enhanced and developed these ideas to teach voice production and singing to young musical theatre students.
In 1-1 lessons students will learn techniques behind breathing and support, vowel placement, diction and vocal health as well as covering a wide variety of age and ability appropriate repertoire. The sessions also cover performance and acting through song techniques, and overall provide a thorough technical grounding in singing for the aspiring young performer.
Whilst these lessons are available only to students aged 11+ they are open to all abilities, and it is not uncommon for absolute beginners, and those with little or no formal training to see huge development and improvement through these lessons. Alongside the lessons students can also opt to take LAMDA musical theatre solo performance graded examinations.
