Our Unique Approach to Performing Arts Education

There are lots of stage schools out there and it can be difficult to know how (or if!) they are different from each other. Here’s the scoop on and what makes us stand out.

Nurturing the Individual

We understand that each child is unique, with their own strengths, interests, and learning style. For one student speaking up in class might be a huge milestone while someone else is pushing to be on a Westend stage. We’re here to support each student in the way they need, whether they want to be more self-confident or nail the perfect singing pitch. Our approach is highly personalised, allowing us to cater to the individual needs of every student.


“It’s such a lovely environment to learn in – so creative and confidence-boosting, especially for the kids who are nervous or new to theatre”.

The Power of Fun

Learning should be fun! Our goal is always for our students to enjoy themselves first and foremost, if they’re passionate and have fun then everything else will follow. Whether it’s dancing, acting, or singing, our highly skilled teachers pair creative methods with infectious enthusiasm to ensure that every child not only learns but loves the process.

Diversity, Equality and Inclusion

We welcome everyone and work hard to create a safe supportive environment where every student feels important and included. Being a charity, the fees we collect help us fund free and reduced places for those in need. When you choose MTA you’re not just investing in your child’s future; you’re also supporting us to make a broader impact, fostering creativity and confidence in those who might not otherwise have the opportunity.

Year-Round Provision

We run a year-long programme that covers term time classes and holiday courses you so know you can always rely on us to be there.

Building a Lasting Legacy

We’ve been around a long time, since 1998 in fact and in that time we’ve grown a community. Many parents who once attended as children are sending their own kids to us, and our students often return to volunteer with us or even teach! We’re a place where children and adults alike make new friends, where you can trust in our reputation and know that we have the experience to back it up.
