Andy has directed his own workshops and Masterclasses throughout the UK for many years, but it was his involvement as director with The Creative Masterclass ‘Les Miserables’ at Pineapple Studios in London where Andy’s teaching and motivational skills were displayed to a wider audience.
As a Resident Director for Les Miserables, Andy’s knowledge and insight into the production gives valuable tuition to anyone wishing to explore below the surface of this classic musical.
He delivers an enthralling three day course which places professional demands on those in attendance. The classes give an insight into the preparation required to maintain performance level during an 8 show a week run. The chosen material is looked at in great depth, which allows the actors to explore their own techniques, and how to enhance that technique.
The Masterclass is a very enjoyable, positive and rewarding experience. There are many people working in the ‘amateur’ world who are more than capable of sustaining a career in theatre, but for one reason or another they chose not to. A weekend Masterclass allows everyone to taste the intensity of working towards a polished professional product over the space of a few days. Andy delivers Masterclasses using material from many top West End productions including Les Miserables, Miss Saigon, Jesus Christ Superstar and Blood Brothers.
A presentation is normally given during the final session. Friends and family are invited to come and see the results.
The classes normally run from Fri evening through to 6pm on Sunday. The number of participants can range from 18 – 40 people, and the event is suitable for 18 to 80 years! The average cost per person is normally around £55 which includes all Masterclass material, and covers tuition sessions on Friday evening, Saturday morning, Saturday afternoon, Sunday morning and Sunday afternoon (including the optional performance). Additional costs to cover hall hire etc are at the discretion of the organisation or society booking the Masterclass.
The Masterclass can also be booked for one day.
Andy also looks at audition techniques for spoken and vocal work when required.
