Drama can enable us to make sense of the world in a way we cannot of ourselves. Through it we learn to empathise, communicate and walk in worlds that are not our own. - Anonymous
Our drama classes are aimed at children aged 5 to 18 years. These weekly lessons introduce children to the dramatic foundations, with particular focus on vocal development, improvisation and movement, mood and characterisation, as well as spacial awareness and silent negotiation.
All classes allow children to learn through fun and games which build key skills and develop performance confidence.
“My daughter loves guitar and is very eager every week to go to lessons. She has fun learning and it’s really bringing on her confidence.” (Instrumental lessons)

“My 5 year old has started a pre-instrumental music class with Expand. She loves to sing and comes home every Thursday with new songs and rhymes. The class is teaching her so many important components of music but most of all it’s so much fun! My daughter can’t wait to attend every week and I’ll definitely be signing her up again next term.” (Parent)

“I really appreciate what Expand School of Music has done for my son. I would recommend it for every child to learn an instrument as it has built my son’s confidence and given him an interest and something to do which is brilliant.” (Parent)
