The course leader is Principal and West End vocal coach Leontine Hass.
Who should apply:
“Having worked professionally as an actor and a singer/musician for over ten years I have had the opportunity to study with some remarkable mentors. None have unleashed the passion, joy, focus and clarity of sound that Leontine Hass has, by virtue of her extraordinary breadth of knowledge, vast experience and her ability to immediately assess and tap into an individual’s vocal potential.”
Doug Hansell – recently starred in ‘Titanic’ at the Charing Cross Theatre.
“Since doing the first Associated Studios course I went from strength to strength – I secured a great new agent who I’ve been with for many years now and who I count as a friend and a rock… and have now wracked up two West End contracts, an Arena tour around America and I know there’s still great things ahead. Leontine Hass and the directors, MD’s and choreographers from Associated Studios have remained in my life as friends, mentors and as fellow professionals. When you’re ‘resting’ these people will be the ones who drive you forward.”
David O’Mahoney – starred in ‘The Bodyguard’ with Beverley Knight. Currently plays Swing in the London West End production of ‘Beautiful’.
“Having completed the part time Musical Theatre course at Associated Studios and also had individual coaching with Leo my confidence has improved massively and I would not hesitate to recommend them both.”
Alice Stokoe – recently starred as Sophie in London’s West End production of ‘Mamma Mia’ and ‘American Idiot’
