Melanie Ash is funny, warm, insightful, honest, creative and has a wealth of acting experience and industry knowledge that is invaluable to budding actors. Her energy knows no bounds and her commitment to her students is truly awe-inspiring. The weekly lessons are varied and students are constantly engaged and challenged. The improvement I have seen in my daughter since she began at Meladrama is incredible. There are so many opportunities from workshops to performing in shows, filming, LAMDA exams and auditions for professional work. Equally important is the caring, supportive, inclusive environment that Meladrama offers to those who harbour no plans to take to the stage but attend to pure enjoyment, confidence building, self knowledge, passion and self-expression. Having had some experience of other drama schools in the region I can say wholeheartedly that Meladrama is head and shoulders above the rest.
