Our training exists nowhere else; here’s why…
Be prepared for audition; succeed in your chosen career
GAMTA gave me the skills, opportunities and theatre experiences necessary to become a professional in the musical theatre industry. The training I received at GAMTA not only prepared me for my first West End role in LES MISERABLES , but has also helped me on subsequent jobs, including my current role as Penny in HAIRSPRAY. Skills that I still use everyday, having left three years ago, and will continue to use.
My time at GAMTA instilled in me, a solid base in all three disciplines required to have a successful career in musical theatre. It not only gave me training for musical theatre, but also how to respect and be disciplined in what is not an easy career choice. GAMTA brings out your confidence and I met life long friends there. You are always encouraged at GAMTA to follow your dreams and that’s exactly what I have done.
The training at GAMTA is like no other, I know that without all the skills I learned during my time there I wouldn’t be able to work in the way I do now. I have no worries going into auditions for musical theatre, plays or TV/film work because I know the training I received from GAMTA will always stand me in good stead! After training at GAMTA, you are set for anything the industry can throw at you!
Studying at GAMTA laid down the foundations to succeed in a very competitive industry. It equipped me with the skills and discipline to further my training in London as well as valuable performance opportunities. The lessons I learned at GAMTA I have taken into my work in the West End.
I have to say the GAMTA showcase was one of the best showcases I have seen this year and considerably better than some recent ones by some of the more established schools. You seem to have trained some very good people indeed.
Glasgow Academy Musical Theatre Arts produces an excellent showcase featuring interesting choices, and strong performances with an emphasis on triple-threat training.
