Iona offers private tuition for individuals and bespoke workshops for

young people in drama, music and sensory exploration.

Audition Preparation

One to one tuition designed to secure you a place at your chosen

Drama School/College.




Iona has recently played a huge role in Sophia successfully  obtaining a place at Sylvia Young Theatre School in London. Having been only given three weeks to prepare for her face to face audition,  Iona approached each session with such enthusiasm and really built up Sophia’s confidence. Iona went out of her way to come to our home to do a one to one session with Sophia the night before the audition. I really feel Iona went above and beyond her remit for Sophia and without her encouragement and input Sophia would not have secured a place at such a prestigious stage school.  Iona is a truly gifted teacher and her passion for drama is obvious to see, she has a natural empathy with children and adults alike and I this is why I would highly recommend her.
