"Enrolled in this programme a year ago and it was the most amazing summer I've ever had! It was a wonderful opportunity to meet the best working actors and actresses from the West End. You don't only get to learn the first-class skills from these professional performers but more importantly you get an in-depth knowledge/understanding of what it's like to work in the West End musical theatre industry. Not to mention one of the best part of this programme is meeting all the other people from around the world who share the same passion as you! The staff were very accommodating and fulfilled all my special requests (ie. arranging private one-to-one voice/speech lessons) which I have truly appreciated and was very helpful to me personally. This course will be a real gem for anyone who's looking to be introduced to musical theatre or is already very passionate in musical theatre and are looking at pursuing it in college. You'll get all the help and advice you need to get ready to ace an audition!"
"West end on demand was an AMAZING experience!!! Not only because you can work with professionals and learn from those who are in the industry (and believe me, you'll learn A LOT!), but also because there you can BE a performer and decide if that's what you want to do in your life! Spoiler alert: you'll have a lot of fun, friends and music. ENJOY! x"
"One more time I would like to thank you for all your help and support in the course. I think all of us had an
amazing experience!! I loved the classes and everyone (staff, teachers..) was fantastic!! I hope next year I have the opportunity to join another experience."
