I'm 16 and will be 17 in May, and am currently in sixth form, in the past two years, I started to really get into musical theatre and after doing my school production and joining a theatre company, I have found myself really loving it.


Many of my other theatre friends are currently doing their musical theatre grades in my school, most of them on grade 6 working towards their diploma. However, since I have never done any grades before, I'd be afraid of having to start from the beggining and not getting very far with it for when I leave school and go to uni or theatre school in 2019.

'Starting from the beginning' with singing isn't quite the same as starting from the beginning with a new instrument, since you already know physically how to produce a singing tone, and how to vary the pitch of your voice, which means that once you get the hang of the techniques your teacher shows you, you can start to progress quite quickly. Of course, you probably won't get to the samw level as your friends by the time you leave sixth form, but you can definitely make a meaningful improvement to your technique, and sound noticeably better when you sing. If you're singing regularly with your theatre company, I would definitely recommend having at least a few lessons to make sure that you're not singing with an incorrect technique which risks damaging your vocal cords.
