Amanda Grimsey

Founder and Principal


We’re proud to have such a supportive community of parents and students.

“My daughter has been having LAMDA lessons with Amanda for a little over a year and she absolutely loves them. Amanda is a fantastic teacher, she is so encouraging and supportive and really brings out the best in her students. The past year my daughter has grown in confidence and self-esteem which has also helped her immensely at school. Thank you Amanda.”

Paula Moorcroft – Parent

“Amanda has always been so supportive and I always came away from her lessons feeling confident and excited to return the next week to do even better. She helped me live my dream of performing lead roles on stage as a teenager and every job since then has involved public speaking and presenting. I can honestly say Amanda has been a big part in me being able to do that. I still can’t stay away as I now attend the Adult Choir and enjoy every minute of it!”
