London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts
LAMDA is one of the country’s foremost Drama schools, based in London. The Examination side of it began a very long time ago focusing on clear speech, an understanding of what you are saying, and an awareness of the situation.
In every exam there is a questioning section. As time has moved on, so LAMDA has spread to many countries Worldwide. I was lucky enough to be invited on to the board over 30 years ago and to travel worldwide meeting so many lovely people and of course children and young adults. I need to add – many candidates sit these exams much later on in life.
The subjects which are now offered are:
- Verse & Prose
- Spoken English / Public Speaking
- Reading for Performance
- Devised Performance
- Musical Theatre
