If you are trying to find the best drama classes in Melbourne for your child, then you can not go past us of course (our details are here)! But if you don’t live near our Melbourne venues, here are 3 important points every parent should consider.
1. Are the teachers accredited, qualified and skilled at teaching speech and drama? Are they experienced in teaching large groups of children? To help your selection process, you may like to ask question such as: “Are your teachers members of the Speech and Drama Teachers Association of Victoria (SDTAV)?” or “Are your teachers registerd with the Victorian Institute of Teaching?” or “Are your teachers accredited Trinity Guildhall or AMEB Speech & Drama teachers?”. The more “yes” answers you get the better!
2. Are the classes well structured? A programme with a strong long term structure is more likely to deliver in more areas over time for your child. For example, if a drama programme suggests they include public speaking skills, it is best to ask specifically how these skills are planned and structured. You may also like to check how the programmes align to Victorian Essential Learning Standards (VELS) or the Australian Curriculum.
3. What best suits your child’s needs? Different drama classes in Melbourne focus on different areas. Is your child a budding young actor or performer? Do they need to explore and fine tune their stage and theatrical skills (such as acting, singing or dancing)? Or are you more interested in helping your child develop practical life and communication skills through drama and speech? Different programmes focus on different areas and have different expertise. Both types of programmes can offer great benefits to different children. Whilst there may be several great options for drama classes in Melbourne, you are likely to find certain ones will “best” suit your child’s needs.
