Programmes Tailor Made for All Needs
We have always been so proud of all the musicians who have come through Kilshanna's doors. They have won awards, prizes and applause all over the world. Friendships have been created through their group classes as they learn to create their own music. We are indeed in a privileged position to experience their development. Our classes cater for the very beginner to diploma and professional performers.
In Kilshanna we not only teach singing but we teach the correct breathing techniques and help our vocalists develop their voices at a natural pace so they will not experience vocal strain. Our students are encouraged to sing all genres to experience the entire vocal world that is open to them. Kilshanna junior and senior students are always among the top awards winners each year and develop a confident stage presence when they perform.
Speech & Drama -YouthTheatre
If you are a stage diva who longs to thread the boards as a Shakespearean actor or a budding screen star our classes encourage and develop all forms of stage craft from behind the scenes through to staging a entire production. Our speech improves confidence with public speaking whilst our class games help students improvise and develop their imagination.
