What is LAMDA and why do we teach it?

A LAMDA exam is a performing arts qualification which begins at basic levels and goes all the way up to Grade 8, similar to a music grade. LAMDA exams are accredited by the government and the higher grades also go towards UCAS point for university- especially great for our older pupils! Performing Arts qualifications are a fantastic achievement and award for our pupils and also look great on your CV too.

We come across so many exam like situations in our lives, such as interviews and presentations- when we have to speak confidently in front of an individual or to a group. LAMDA exams allow our pupils to put their skills and confidence to the test and also prepares them for the future.

But do not worry- the exams are nothing to worry about! Our tutors guide and support our pupils until they are ready to take the leap.

About our Lessons

MINI VOICES (Ages 4 – 7)

Our “Mini Voices” lessons are for children aged 4 – 7 years. Children are introduced to performing arts through energetic, fun and inspiring lessons in drama and singing. We explore the voice and body and encourage pupils to explore their creativity and imaginations through fun exercises and games. We also aim to develop key skills such as confidence building, communication and team work- skills to use in our every day lives!

Our ‘Minis’ also work towards a LAMDA communication qualification in which they have to recite a poem and talk about their favourite toy / book.

 

LITTLE VOICES (Ages 7 – 12)

Our ‘Little Voices’ lessons are for children aged 8 – 12.  Our lesson groups are split accordingly and we always aim to find the best class for every child.

Our fun and professional tutors take our ‘Littles’ on a journey through acting and singing development. With a particular emphasis on musical theatre. We explore the voice, characterisation, script work, improvisations, devised pieces and pay close attention to breath control and vocal techniques. Pupils work towards LAMDA qualifications in either musical theatre, acting or verse and prose. In which they can do as a group, duo or solo.

My son thoroughly enjoyed it at Clitheroe
5.0
My son, 6, has been attending Little Voices in Clitheroe for one year now, and has also taken part in theatre week this summer. He had no previous experience in singing or drama. He has thoroughly enjoyed it! His favourite part was learning songs from musicals like Jungle Book, The Lion Kind and Mary Poppins. The instructors have all been great – engaging, fun, and genuinely concerned about the children’s development and welfare. They make sure that every single child in the group is included in the activities and feels good about what they have accomplished during the week. At the same time they reward special achievements with their coveted ‘Star of the Week’ stickers! My son even took part in the exam, where he recited a poem he had memorized, and spoke about his teddy, in front of a complete stranger – this is definitely something I could not have done at his age!! As a parent, I can highly recommend Little Voices Clitheroe for any child who already enjoys singing and performing, but especially for children who are a bit shy and need that extra boost of confidence in a familiar and fun environment.

My child has participated in three theatre weeks now with Little Voices Flagship. She absolutely loves them! Her favourite was “Shrek the Musical” which they did in February half term this year. I love watching the shows come together and it is great that the children get the chance to perform on the stage.
