About the class:
AMEB (NSW) has been inspiring excellence and supporting students' artistic achievements for over 100 years. AMEB (NSW) provides quality assessments in music and speech and drama, with more than 35,000 AMEB exams undertaken by students each year. AMEB is the most widely used assessment system in its fields of study in Australia and AMEB credentials are recognised professionally both in Australia and overseas. AMEB (NSW) is a constituted entity under the agency of the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA). Overall direction of AMEB activities is the responsibility of a Federal Board consisting of representatives of educational institutions that are signatories to the AMEB constitution, namely the Universities of Melbourne, Adelaide and Western Australia, the Minister for Education, New South Wales, the Minister for Education, Training and Employment, Queensland, and the Minister for Education and Training, Tasmania, through the University of Tasmania.
Syllabuses focus on a wide range of dramatic skills, as well as enabling students to extend their intellectual interpretations of different texts, historical theatre periods and build a sophisticated knowledge of the body, speech and phonetics, the language of sound. Students will refine their voice production technique, including breathing, resonance, relaxation and posture. Vocal modulation work will help students to build an awareness of pitch, pace, pause, volume and stress to build tonal colour, avoid monotony and adjust their register. Students will work on their articulation and intelligibility, which is particularly helpful for students with rapid or lazy speech or for those for whom English is a second language. Plays, prose, poetry, mime, storytelling and script writing are incorporated into colourful programs of work that encourage students to critically engage with a wide range of social concerns and build their vocabulary and love of language.
Important administrative information:
COVID- We have registered as COVID SAFE and have implemented plans to enable us to return to on site tuition. All classes are again held in the studio, unless private lesson students request online tuition, which is always available. If you are a student who is continuing classes online, some classes could be impacted by technology. However, in the instance of disruptions we have a backup plan. Our courses are the perfect blend of video conferencing and digital learning resources provided online. We draw from a range of media, pre-recorded videos, and text resources, to build on top of our video conferencing sessions. Please read about our e-learning strategies here prior to enrolling.
