Student Experience: Maisie

2013 Graduate, Advanced Course

I came to MGA to help me learn about the professional industry and to build my list of contacts. I had already studied on a full-time performing arts course but had not received the level of training required to secure employment. I didn’t understand the process of marketing myself in the industry and needed to improve on my audition technique.

I secured my first professional contract within a few months of graduating and was on a flight to Miami, USA to begin rehearsals before I knew what was happening!

Do I recommend The MGA Academy of Performing Arts? Wholeheartedly!
