What is Actor-Musicianship?

Actor-musicianship encourages a creative harmony between theatre and music. It can heighten and inform the action, plays well to comedy and all the live instruments can be very visually exciting! 

We are ever eager to spread the word of actor-musicianship. We think that it can be a vital tool towards unlocking students' creativity - whether it be working towards devised projects, looking to implement music into scripted works or exploring chorus and ensemble work which we feel is a key to effective theatre.

We believe that musical talent and expression can be explored on a wide spectrum. Children that find it hard to read music for example can find freedom in the lack of boundaries that actor-musicianship offers. No grades or musical qualifications are required, we are about encouraging a team rhythm, sound and therefore the creation of a world. 

We can offer introductory workshops into the genre or can schedule more regular visits to your school if you were interested in implementing actor-musicianship more solidly into your curriculum. 

Our workshop leaders are all DBS checked and experts in the field of actor-musicianship.

 
 

We also deliver workshops introducing the integration of BSL (British Sign Language) into theatre.
