She now works in private practice, teaching all aspects of speech, drama and communication skills, including presentation skills, public speaking, interview skills and voice coaching (including specialist voice awareness training for professional voice users such as teachers, lecturers and broadcast journalists), as well as the speaking of verse and prose and acting skills, including mime and improvisation.

Group Classes

Maggie Hall's School of Speech and Drama

Saturday morning class for children aged 8-16 (classes for older age groups will be started if enough interest)every Saturday during term time. The age groups may be split into two one hour classes, depending on how many children there are in each age group.

Children can come just for fun if they wish, but if interested they will be encouraged to enter for the graded Speech and Drama examinations of the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA). They also have the opportunity to take part in the Worthing Festival next February.

We learn about improvisation, mime, acting, how to speak poetry and prose and general communication skills. Students will be expected to work hard and practise between classes, learning poems, pieces of prose and scenes and monologues for their acting exams or festival entries.

This is a school, not a theatre group, so we don't do any musical theatre or stage a big show at the end of the year, although we may put on small presentations for families and friends.
