Speech and drama are expressive forms of communication that use language, voice, and body language to convey meaning and engage the audience. In a Speech & Drama course, learners will learn to master the art of effective oral communication which encompasses skills such as articulation, intonation, inflection, pitch, pacing and pausing. Not only that, the students will gain emotional intelligence and have improved critical thinking skills.
In Blubricks Melaka, we abide by the curriculum from Trinity College London Examinations.
What do learners learn in this course?
Learners will be introduced to the world of acting, miming, storytelling and poetry recitation. Younger learners will learn the basics of presentation which are clarity and the 5Ps (Pitch, Pace, Pause, Power and Projection) through various class activities such as games and warm-ups.
Older learners will progress to learning to analyse a plethora of literature pieces from poetry to monologues to stories. Analysing different literature pieces allow learners to understand the message and emotion that is portrayed by the author/writer. Learners will gain better emotional intelligence and improve their critical thinking skills.
Learners can showcase their performance in the Trinity Exams. Learners are given the opportunity to display their skills through our mini showcases, small and large-scale productions as well as international competition such as Singapore Performing Arts Festival (SPAF).
Learners aged 5 years and above.
