Amy studied at the University of South Wales for her degree in Theatre and Drama and was recently awarded a Masters in Arts Management through The Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. Amy is also currently studying a PGCE at Cardiff Metropolitan University.
Amy has a wealth of experience in teaching Drama to people of all ages having taught at Dancekatz Academy of Theatre Arts and the Helen O'Grady Drama Academy. She has over ten years experience in writing and directing theatre productions for Caldicot Musical Theatre Society.
Her interest in Performing Arts started when she was 6 years old and took part in her first ever production with Llanyrafon Drama Group and subsequently CMTS. Since then, she has taken on a variety of roles both on and offstage in many productions with different groups.
Gareth studied Music and Composition at the London College of Music and has been playing the piano for many years after starting lessons with his Gran at the age of just 6!
He works with several theatre companies as Musical Director. His piano skills have also led him to studio recording work. He worked in America for a time as a Drama Coach and has accompanied various West End performers in the past.
He performs as Joliet Jake in a Blues Brothers Tribute Band and is also the frontman of The Piano Man Band so he's no stranger to performing himself!
Gareth has always had a passion for encouraging others to pursue an interest in music.
