The benefits of group exams

 

 

For generations LAMDA was renowned for its individual Acting examinations however the group exams have a multitude of benefits that cannot and should not be overlooked. They allow every child to shine, every child to play to their strengths and use their individual vocal and dramatic talents within the group piece. They are marked as a group. This is fundamental……..the success of any project is always a team effort and not individual performances. The Olympic cyclists and rowers and athletes pull together as a team and medals are won for Great Britain as a whole. Yes individual performances stand out but it is how the team works together that counts. It is the same on the West End stage. A review is written about the entire cast, the group together, this is theatre! TRUE Theatre. There will be individual star performances but it is a group, team, effort that attracts success. That involves not just the performers but the entire technical team and production teams too!

If you are going to follow a career on the stage you very rarely work ALONE – in fact you don’t. Even a one woman show makes demands that you work with others in the theatre; the director, the stage manager, the crew! Sometimes things go wrong and it is how the team works together that enables the show to go on. 

At Little Voices we are committed to building fundamental life skills in children and young people. Techniques and behaviours that will set children up for life…….of course this is inbuilt into singing and drama lessons in the most fun and highly structured way possible! However all of these skills are easily transferred into life in general and a career path into the arts!

We all have to work as part of a team within our job roles in later life and learning to work as part of a cast in a piece of Musical Theatre for a group examination really does teach the fundamental life skills of teamwork and playing to your strengths, being reliable and supporting each other.

Individual exams have their very important place but when weighing up the benefits the group exams have all the elements of solo exams and for children aged up to 13 years they provide a fantastic examination foundation in musical theatre or acting.

How can lessons help my very shy child?

 

Read on to find out how we can help…

An under confident child just needs nurturing. Our lessons have the perfect ingredients in order to bring the best out of any child.

  • Small class sizes – Our children are put into groups of no more than 8 children. The small number of children allows us to know each child individually. What are the benefits of small class sizes? Well, no child will ‘get lost’ within the class, we know each child individually, the children are getting lots of care and individual attention as well as gaining group skills.
  • We work towards LAMDA exams – the first stages of the LAMDA exams that we teach our mini voices children are made to specifically build communication skills. Exams are treated as EXCITING and NOT scary. Giving children the confidence to speak out, and also to be prepared in later life for other exams and speaking in front of other people.
  • Make friends – in our nurturing environment our pupils make friends outside of their school environment. Building and making friendships is a huge part of our lessons.
  • Highly qualified tutors – our tutors are so highly qualified that they know their subject very well, and they know just how to get the best out of a child! Perfect!

The list could go on and on… It’s just that we understand what environment a child needs to be in to be nurtured. And we ensure that every single centre and lesson does just that!

What to tell your friends about Little Voices

 

Little Voices builds confidence and nurtures talent through inspirational education in music and drama for children aged 4-18. Our trained singing and drama tutors follow a LAMDA syllabus and teach in small class sizes of 8 children. We are passionate about helping all of our pupils reach their full potential and we take great care to get to know every child. It’s a wonderful caring environment where everyone gets a part and your child can make new friends and grow in confidence and develop so many important life skills such as posture, eye contact, good communication skills, handing nerves and most importantly, confidence.  

 

Our tutors make learning fun…

At Little Voices we totally understand that if a pupil is enjoying their lesson, then they are much more likely to learn. We learn lots through games, and every single game has a reason and a purpose behind it. The more the children enjoy what they are doing the more they will learn.

Once children come to our centres they will be warmly welcomed into a small group of similar age/ability children. They may feel a little apprehensive but how they leave the teaching room will be different to when they first arrived. They will feel safe, they will have fun and they will experience an inspiring lesson with our tutors. Our tutors want the very best for your child; they want to get to know them, to make them feel included in the group dynamic as soon as possible and because our groups are so small our tutors know every child individually by name and what they are capable of. Our tutors are very passionate, highly motivated and genuinely care. They have a love and experience of the performing arts, they have high expectations and help your child to be the best that they can be. Often tutors have performed themselves as well has having teaching experience and this helps to inspire children, give them ideas and suggestions on how to access characters, their voice and reach their full potential.

 

No one forgets a great teacher…

When you went to school do you have a couple of teachers who stick out in your mind for being great teachers? If so, what made them so great? Was it the fact that they made every lesson boring and the same? Or was it the fact that the lessons were full of fun and inspiration? I’m going to guess the second one. 

A good teacher is a teacher who uses lots of different resources and techniques to get the best out of their pupils. Someone who has the ability to inspire, listen to and encourage its pupils. 

We only recruit great teachers. Our lessons are lessons of distinction, and in order to ensure that, we need to recruit tutors of distinction. 

Who inspired you at school? And why? Why not ask your children the same, the answers really are priceless. 

Would love to hear your answers! 

We are enrolling NOW for our LAMDA Semester!

Would you like your child to build in confidence?

Anna loves Little Voices, and comes out bouncing every week. The teachers are fantastic, very professional, and really connect with the children, I have huge respect for what they do, and Anna’s confidence has grown enormously. The focus on skills and improvement is very high, but the main thing is that it’s really good fun. The small group size means the children build strong relationships with their teacher and each other.
Mrs MarkhamParent
My daughter has attended ‘Little Voices’ for four years now. She originally attended a workshop over the school holidays, and she enjoyed it so much that she asked to attend the weekly after school classes! My daughter came to ‘Little voices’ with confidence, but lacking in patience, together they over came this hurdle. She has come along in Leaps and Bounds, especially with her singing. She has learnt that there are many different ways to convey a message, though words, expression, actions and tone. The lessons are perfectly are structured working L.A.M.D.A exams. The principal, Ashlea, is brilliant, she is fantastic with the children, incredibly organised, and has a lot of good feedback for everyone. I believe its money well spent, my daughter absolutely loves going and I would definitely recommend ‘Little Voices’!

 How can we ensure that our children have confidence?

 

6 tips in ensuring our children have confidence… 

  1. Give praise where praise is due. 
  2. Lots of positive talking with a growth mindset
  3. Put them in different situations where they have to speak to lots of different people of all ages. 
  4. Let them make their own decisions – guiding them as necessary. 
  5. Nurture their special interests. 
  6. And of course send them to Little Voices so that we can get to know them and nurture their special talents

Why is confidence so important?

 

What does confidence even mean?

Confidence is the feeling or belief in an ability to do something, according to google!

Children have so much to acquire and achieve. There’s so much for them to handle from such an early age especially once the school journey begins. There are many transitions along the way too; high school, friends, getting a part time job, handling the wider world and social media.

I once heard that a confident child is a happy one, and I couldn’t agree more. I don’t necessarily mean the children who are born to be on the stage, but the children who have the confidence to know their own mind, and be able to go through life with self belief. The children who have the confidence to speak to other children and adults, create friendships, not be too nervous about performing in the school nativity, who are happy to make friends on holiday, who are happy to join new clubs out of school, who are happy to put their hands up in class. And as these children get older, children who have the confidence when they join high school to just go for it, the children who know how to handle themselves in job interviews, or interviews for college and university. 

Some children are just born to be confident, others have a little more trouble. Some children need that little bit of extra help to believe in themselves to be able to do something. And that’s where lessons like Little Voices can help. Specifically tailored to building confidence – helping conversational and social skills whilst getting all the important performing arts techniques, examination experience and brand new friends – all these things not only help children who want a life on the stage, but parents who want well rounded children. 

So confidence is important for a child’s general happiness and to help create a well rounded individual. They don’t need to be the next big star, but confidence will certainly help them conquer lots of things that little people need to conquer!
