What is LAMDA?
LAMDA (founded 1861) is the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art. It is one of the oldest drama schools
in the United Kingdom and has a global reputation for excellence. You can find out more about LAMDA at www.lamda.org.uk
LAMDA began offering speech examinations to the public in the 1880s. These examinations have been refined and developed over the years. They now form a comprehensive system of performance evaluation.
LAMDA’s mission is to improve standards in communication through the spoken word, foster an appreciation of literature and support creative, intellectual and social development.
What is a LAMDA exam?
A LAMDA Exam is the speech and drama equivalent of a music grade. Like our music grades, LAMDA Exams culminate at
LAMDA Exams cover a range of disciplines:
- Devising Drama
- Speaking Verse and Prose
- Reading for Performance
- Using Spoken English
- Speaking in Public
Exams can be taken at four levels:
- Entry Level
- Level 1 – Grades 1, 2, 3
- Level 2 – Grades 4 and 5
- Level 3 – Grades 6, 7 and 8 (Bronze Medal, Silver Medal, Gold Medal)
There are also Introductory Examinations for young performers (4-7 years) who are taking the first steps in memorising, reciting, and communicating.
Why Tutorial Ltd are introducing LAMDA Exams?
LAMDA Exams offer an ongoing measurement of progress in speech and drama. The gradual progression through the LAMDA grades
provides benchmarks for every stage of a student’s development. The LAMDA grades provide a useful skill for Tutorial Ltd
students and help us to support a steady improvement in self-confidence, vocal and physical technique, and language awareness.
LAMDA Exams are well tailored to the abilities of students of different ages. For a four-year-old, reciting an eight-line poem is an achievement to be celebrated, and for a sixteen-year-old, delivering a Shakespeare soliloquy or giving a speech on a pressing moral or ethical issue is equally praiseworthy. LAMDA Exams recognise these achievements, provide a context within which they can be assessed, and reward them with nationally recognised qualifications.
