A BIT ABOUT US...
The four of us are professionally trained Actors & Singers. We met at Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts in 2013, graduating in 2016; all with a BA(HONS) in Musical Theatre.
Upon graduating, we all went on to pursue performing careers in and around London, as well as overseas. We have all worked in some of the West Ends most well known and beloved theatres in a variety of different shows, cabarets and solo gigs.
Each of us have been coaching singing and speech, respectively, since graduating in various different capacities and settings; whether it be conducting workshops or one-on-one sessions.
We aim to provide a fully professional, but personal and friendly experience; ensuring that you reach your goals, whatever they may be. We really hope you enjoy working with us!

SELF-TAPE COACHING (30 MINS): £15
COACHING & EDIT: £20

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
"My daughter had a fantastic first lesson with Samuel and we have already booked the next one. We highly recommend this tutor for his professionalism, approach and teaching standards."
SINGING Clients Mother- taught by Samuel Thomas
"I absolutely love my singing lessons with Sam! From the first 10 minutes I instantly knew that I had chosen the right teacher to help me reach my goal of a successful singing career. He is super friendly and comfortable to work with. He encourages me to take my time to learn everything, whilst at the same time pushing me out of my comfort zone. He is the kind of singing teacher that I wanted because he not only knows what he’s talking about, but is also encouraging & motivating at every step of my journey. I absolutely enjoy each lesson and I’m so grateful to have found him. I can’t wait to see where I will be a year from now"
SINGING CLIENT- TAUGHT BY SAMUEL THOMAS
"Absolutely fantastic. It's well known amongst my friends that I can't sing, but Sam has taken me on and we're making progress. He is endearingly patient, professional and determined; making the lessons fun and hugely worthwhile. I'd recommend it to anyone."
SINGING CLIENT- TAUGHT BY SAMUEL THOMAS
"I have been having singing lessons with Ben over lockdown and he has been brilliant! Overlock down we have worked on a number of things such as technique and building up a new rep as I didn’t like mine! I feel like over this time my strength and stamina in singing has improved massively and this has been noticed by other people as well as myself. Things that I used to find hard when belting or using my mix have become much easier since using the techniques that Ben showed me. Ben is wonderful, supportive and easy to speak to about any concerns or worries that I may have. 10/10 would recommend to a friend!"
