A PLACE TO FEEL COMFORTABLE
“Music bursts out of class, followed by the silence of intense concentration and the roar of laughter”
Our students come into their own between Grade Seven and Twelve. The studio is a place that feels like home, giving students room to build their skills in interpretation and storytelling in a safe environment. Classes have the feel of a ‘Glee Club’ with impromptu performances and jam sessions regularly breaking out.
SINGING AND ACTING CLASSES
Students make the transition from primary to high school and then College surrounded by friends and feeling that they have a place that feels like home, while they are dealing with the changes new grades bring. ExitLeft becomes a safe space, where they have permission to be silly and to step into mentoring and leadership roles for younger students. Their performance skills start to shine as they bridge the gap between high school and further education. Grade Seven to Twelve classes run during the school terms.
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday:
ADVANCED SINGING AND ACTING CLASS (COLLEGE/UNI)
There is a big jump from the family friendly music and drama offered in high school to what is expected when students hit College, and even more so for those who want to audition for the big performing arts Universities. To bridge that gap ExitLeft offer an advanced College/Uni class that pushes the envelope. A safe space where our students can learn how to confidently deliver music and scripts that have adult concepts, build believable characters and get advice and feedback on their College monologues and performance pieces. This class is free for students who are enrolled in a Grade 7-12 Singing and Acting Class, otherwise it is $36 pw. Students who haven’t studied with the Academy before will need to book an assessment to determine eligibility for this class.
PERSONALISED SINGING/GUITAR LESSONS
Individual lessons are a great way to focus on development of skills and performance techniques. Students take part in Eisteddfods and exams. We work with students to build a safe foundation for their voice as it changes with puberty and give them tips and tricks for performances from school musicals to bands, individual performances and music exams.

School aged students must be enrolled in a Singing and Acting Class to be eligible for individual singing lessons.
