Private Lessons

Personalised private lessons - learn to sing and act

Our private lessons offer students one-on-one learning with a professional.  Private lessons are great for those students who want to progress quickly by way of personalised coaching that is specific to their needs. Fantastic for students wishing to develop further as ‘all rounders’, prepare for auditions or for those who just wish to gain confidence and have fun.

Private Singing Lessons


Singing students perform in two major events each year – the Cabaret Night in June (when every singing student performs a solo song as well as group songs) and the end of year production. Students need to attend one or two extra rehearsals leading up to these performances.

Private singing coaching is organised by appointment only.

Private Acting Lessons

Private acting coaching can prove to be beneficial if preparing an audition for a play, private school scholarship or university course. Our teachers can assist in selecting a suitable audition piece, giving direction and motivating students.

Private acting coaching is organised by appointment only.

Private Dancing Lessons


During private dancing lessons, students can learn at their own pace with specialised training to suit their requirements. We offer a wide variety of styles of dance, with professional teachers to help guide students to perform at their best.

Why people love Theatre Bugs


of Mind

The safety and well being of your child is as important to us as it is to you. Our teachers genuinely CARE about your children. All teachers hold First Aid certificates, Police Clearances and receive ongoing training, mentoring and support.


For Life

Children learn to trust their own ideas, develop perseverance, empathy, teamwork, to feel confident in their own ability and develop the confidence they need to tackle the challenging situations they are confronted with in life.

No competititve@2x-K

Non-competitive Environment

We strive to make children feel proud of their personal achievements. Children are supported to develop at their own pace without the pressure of exams and competitions.


Unforgettable Experiences

Students participate in at least 2 performances each year which often involve sets, lights and costumes. Students are often invited to participate in events such as TV work, charity concerts, Fringe events, Christmas pageants and more!


We Understand

We know you are busy so we don't expect you to sew costumes. We know you need to budget, so we don’t charge for regular ‘in house’ performances. We know that family is really important so we invite all of family to attend performances.
