TESTIMONIALS

I found working with Tristan to be a great benefit. We worked on monologues, script analysis, voice work and singing and I learnt a wealth of techniques and insights within a short period of time that I hadn’t learnt from other teachers. As a beginner at the time I found Tristan to be a very encouraging and freeing teacher, as well as flexible to my needs. I would recommend highly.
— Tom McDonnell
My sessions with Tristan were brilliant. As a Chilean business owner, he really helped me feel more at ease with my English for when I am taking to potential clients.
— Catalina Newton (Bocados Foods)
I needed help getting into drama school and was not sure which monologues to use.
I was given a large variety of options and offered very useful advice. Tristan used different approaches to the speeches which I had never done before which were very useful.
I also appreciated being taught by someone who has been to drama school and done the auditions process first hand.
— Natasha Brown
I went to Tristan for one to one Acting Lessons to help prepare for Drama School auditions. Tristan was an excellent teacher, he offered intellectual advice and was able to give excellent tips towards the audition process. Not only did Tristan help me to develop character within my monologues, he also taught me a number of useful tips to help project and articulate my speeches in a better manner. I would highly recommend him.
— Siobhan Mannion
Tristan was a great source of inspiration when I took up the challenge of acting for the first time. We approached each session with new ideas and vigour always building on the last and discovering a unique perspective. Whilst working together he really tapped into my hidden talents and it was so much fun working with him.
— Alex Coyle
I am a lot more comfortable with my monologues now, the different exercises were great.

He explained Shakespeare very well.

Helped me look at my monologues from a different angle

Really enjoyable, he knows his stuff.
