What I would highlight: I thought I could sing but after meeting Leo I discovered I was wrong. I started on the inaugural 4 month intensive musical theatre course where I was given singing lessons, improvisation, dance, method acting, as well as masterclasses with industry professionals. After finishing the course, I got more work. Simple as that. Associated Studios is the best!
