LAMDA (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art) tuition gives you the opportunity to receive tuition on a ‘one to one’ basis – your Tutor will have more time to focus on your individual development and progress, as opposed to a show option where the director is working with lots of you! If the thought of ‘going it alone’ is not for you yet, then working in groups or duos would be a good idea. LAMDA will open up a whole new variety of pieces and scenes that you can learn from whilst developing your acting skills, theatrical knowledge and most importantly, building your confidence. LAMDA, essentially, is about you; it’s your time, your development and your exam. It’s a great way to to learn in an informative and invigorating way. You’d be surprised how much LAMDA exams can help with schoolwork and general knowledge.LAMDA is seriously recommended to anyone thinking about applying for Drama School. Tutors can guide you through areas for improvement and help you to build a repertoire of diverse pieces.

For those of you applying to university, LAMDA is an equally valuable experience. More and more universities are looking for well-rounded individuals with enthusiasm and lots to talk about. LAMDA can spark conversations about writers, favourite plays, context and research in interviews.

All levels of LAMDA exams are accredited as recognisable equivalents to standard qualifications: Level 1 exams (Grades 1-3) are the equivalent of low grades at GCSE, Level 2 (Grades 4 and 5) high grade GCSE and Level 3 (Grades 6,7 and 8) have the equivalent UCAS points of AS and A-Levels.

Rec  is committed to offering as many benefits to its members as possible. Both Rec and LAMDA promote and provide a network of support for young people, as shown by LAMDA’s new focus on both the career benefits and enrichment opportunities that their exams can provide.
