About Charlie Bannocks MA Singing & Acting

FULL CLEAN DBS on update system Hello! I'm Charlie, I'm an actor, singer and musician. I've worked in TV/ film and theatre starting at just 7. As well as performing, I am a dedicated peripatetic teacher (freelance) with over 10 years of classroom experience.  I teach Drama, LAMDA exams , and singing Clients include: THEATRE TRAIN, RAZZMATAZZ, MAKE BELIEVE, STAR PROJECT, PERFORM, PLAY PHONICS, DRAMA VISION and many schools. I started working with Oxford World theatre in 2013, “Oxford World Theatre is an English language-learning theatre project. We work with people of all ages and backgrounds around the world, bringing them onto the stage performing tailor-made plays to an audience, in English.” Charlie has visited Russia many times with some visits lasting up to four months delivering theatre projects in schools. Charlie writes her own plays and music, and directs them over two weeks with non-english speakers. She has also worked with students of many nationalities visiting oxford. I have recently joined the Artis panel of specialists and was invited to join the Warts and All Theatre in Northampton pool of Practitioners. I am interested in holistic pedagogy and offer a variety of sessions. If you would like to book a singing or drama lesson, please get in touch. I usually charge £25 an hour for primary aged, and £30 for 11+ but this can be negotiated depending on your circumstances, so please do get in touch even if you can not afford these rates.

Questions & answers

What should customers know about your pricing? (E.g. estimates, discounts, fees, package pricing)
My pricing reflects my wealth of experience, included in the price of your lesson is preparation and resources. However, I believe everybody should have the opportunity to express themselves, and I know lessons can be expensive, so please do get in touch even if you cannot afford my rates as we may be able to negotiate something.
What process do you go through when starting with a new customer?
This is tailored to the needs of each client, but we'll start with some basic questions such as is the student an adult or child? If the student is a child asking what age they are and how much experience they have had. Additionally we will discuss what it is you want to achieve from these lessons
What education or training is most relevant to your work?
I teach LAMDA, with a specialism in the Shakespeare syllabus (Although Shakespeare appears on other syllabus's too! I am a professional singer, and can teach a variety of styles.
Do you have tips or advice for someone hiring a pro in your line of work?
Think about what it is you would like to get out of the lessons. If you are very serious about a career in performing arts you may need to consider paying a little bit more for your specialist tutor. However if you are just looking to build some skills and have some fun it's about finding a tutor you can connect with! I aim to be both a specialist and lots of fun too!
What questions should customers have ready before speaking to pros about their project?
Does this tutor to specialise in the style that you're interested in? There is no point in trying to learn rap from a opera tutor (hehe)! Lots of tutors will have various skills in various styles, but make sure that the tutor has skills in your area of interest.
What are some good examples of past customers?
I've been very lucky that all my customers have been fantastic! For me a good customer is someone who pays promptly (remember this is our job and it puts food on the table ), a good customer is someone who is polite, I also discuss terms and conditions with my clients: Such as what to do if you need to cancel a lesson, as much notice as possible is always appreciated.
Describe a recent project that went well. Scope? How long did it take?
I work really hard with my LAMDA students - and my students have an excellent track record of achieving merit/distinction on their exams!
How did you first get into this line of work?
As a professional performer, I ended up with lots of TIE (Theatre in education) work, Which then led me to work for an international Theatre project that mostly worked with under 19’s, And I realised I loved teaching as much as I loved performing! I am really passionate about good teaching and education.
