What we offer
Helping Children's Development
Speaking clearly so that you can be heard and understood is a skill that we must all learn. Elocution as it used to be called, is the skill of expressive speech, with distinct pronunciation and articulation. Some people have a natural tendency to pronounce and clearly distinguish their words, but others need to practice it over and over again, in different simulations, in order to master it. It plays a vital role in personality development in kids, along with effective communication skills, as it enables them to clearly voice themselves with good sentence structure, a defined thought process, and enunciation.
At PlayAct our students that enable children to learn how to pronounce, express, modulate their speech, and exhibit appropriate body language for the varying situations and scenarios they may find themselves in.

Leinster School of Music and Drama Examination
Leinster School of Music and Drama is an educational centre for music and drama. LSMD prides itself on the success of its students and, as such, is dedicated to its students. LSMD is a national centre for graded music and drama examinations. Why are examinations important? To begin with, it’s a great way to test your students’ skills and ensure that their drama and music instruction is paying off. Second, a graded examination bestows your student with a credential that can give them the upper hand in searching for (and gaining) roles in competitive audition settings. Finally, graded examinations provide valuable feedback for the student, allowing them to pinpoint where their strengths as well as their weaknesses lie. These examinations can be prepared for by taking a guided course syllabus study. LSMD also provides an exciting opportunity for students taking the graded exams: the LSMD Excellence Award in either music or drama. If your student earns an LSMD Excellence Award, it will be a great addition to their music or drama résumé and is sure to get them recognized at future castings and auditions for parts.
