amta-18-of-71At AMTA we want the students to know that their passion matters. We push them to their full potential in a safe and positive environment where their unique talents will be nurtured, developed, and excelled. We make sure our classes are small enough so that we can give the students the attention they deserve, because we care about their experience as an individual. With AMTA, our people are names, not numbers. They become part of our family, and when they succeed, we succeed.

We use current West End and Broadway professionals to teach our courses which are specifically designed for students who want a performance-based career and the skills to segue from a professional training environment straight into the industry.

We provide the students with a hands-on training experience so that they are ready to hit the ground running as soon as they graduate.

Our Background
Co-founded by Kenneth Avery-Clark and Christie Miller in 2010, the academy was set up to bridge the gap between London’s West End and New York’s Broadway creative ideals. As part of the training our students travel to New York, where they are immersed in the American musical theatre culture.
Furthermore, it is our aim to provide a positive ‘no pain no gain’ learning environment, which celebrates their strengths and addresses their weaknesses.

Our Mission Statement
Our number one priority is to consistently strive to be the best provider of musical theatre training in the world.

Our Ethos
To provide full-time acting, singing and dancing training to those we believe have the potential to enter the musical theatre profession upon completion of our course. Our goal is to nurture our students’ growth and develop their talents in a positive and constructive environment. We encourage students to think for themselves so that they can develop the discipline necessary to succeed in this very competitive industry.

At AMTA we promote diversity, inclusion, and equality. Pastoral care and training solutions are available for all those who qualify for our courses.
