Only for those who are serious about reaching their full potential.
You're a standing ovation just waiting to happen.
We're here to help you every step of the way
Sometimes we all struggle a little with self-doubt. Imposter syndrome kicks in and as we look over our shoulder to see if anyone has caught us out yet, we think to ourself, I have no idea what I'm doing here. Somehow though, you surprise yourself by being pretty awesome.
This is a very normal thought process for theatre students. There isn't a right or a wrong way to do things, which means that you have everything it takes to become a professional performer. At times you might think that:
- You’re not good enough.
- You’re not sure if you can compete against all of the other ridiculously talented people out there.
- You're just not sure you can do this.
I’m here to tell you that you can. You can compete, you are good enough. In fact, I can pretty much guarantee that you’ve hardly explored your full potential. You have so much to give but you’ve been holding it back for way too long, it’s time to let it all out. It’s time to show the world how good you really are.
That all sounds ridiculously exciting but a little terrifying at the same time. You might not feel like you’re ready yet but that’s exactly why I created ‘The Academy’.
- For people like you who are super passionate about performing
- Who desperately want to be successful but you’d like a little bit of help and guidance to make sure you’re focussing on the right things.

"Being from a predominantly dance background I always felt less confident when it came to singing as I started out quite late. Not only did Karl help me with the technical side of things, but he also helped me to build my confidence to pursue this further than just a hobby."
Now training at 'Bird College'
“Working with Karl was a fundamental part of my progression in singing and performance. His thorough knowledge and expertise allowed my technique to accelerate, in particular the quality of my belt. Not only this, but my confidence grew massively and I feel that I received a strong foundation for my professional training”
Now training at 'Italia Conti'
“I 100% recommended getting lessons with Karl! I started lessons when I was 15 and I came to him because I needed help with my audition song for musical theatre colleges. I wasn’t a very confident singer and needed work on my belt, within the first lesson I saw a massive improvement as he was very positive and encouraging and helped me work on my belting technique. Thanks to him I gained places to all the musical theatre schools I auditioned for and scholarships to most. He is an amazing teacher and I enjoyed all my lessons with him.”
Recently graduated from 'Urdang'
"I absolutely loved working with Karl. I came to Karl with no confidence as a performer or singer. Over 3 years with Karl and not only did my singing improve massively but I so much more confidence.
Karl is someone who made me feel comfortable to make mistakes and always encouraged me to succeed."
