AMDA Reviews – Breaking Down My Time At The American College of Drama

I finished my time with AMDA last year after the most incredible experience of my life, and I wanted to share that with everyone. I have already contributed to the AMDA reviews on Google, but I wanted to elaborate a little more on what life is like there, and how people can get the most out of their education when studying the performing arts. If you are interested in studying this at college, be it AMDA or others, here is what you can expect and how you can make the most of it. 


First I wanted to talk a little about the AMDA College and Conservatory of the Performing Arts, a wonderful learning institution which offers the very highest level of teaching that you are  likely to find. Here is where the cream of the crop study and the level of performance is so high, you will have to work incredibly hard to secure your place here. The campus has some of the finest facilities in the country and no matter what area of the performing arts you are looking to work in, you are going to have the best place and tutelage here to be the very best that you want to be. 

Studying the Performing Arts 

The three words which come to mind when asked what studying the performing arts is like, are competitive, tiring and amazing. The competition is very tough and this is vital because not only does competition make you better, it is also about preparing you for the real world, and within the arts there is so much competition which you have to struggle through. Tiring because I have never worked so hard in my life. In fact I have friends who studied things like law and geography who had more free time than I did during our college experience, that is how hard I worked! And finally amazing, for anyone who truly loves the performing arts this is a course which is going too help you learn and improve your craft, which will reward you with friendships and creative inspiration and which will simply be the best experience you have ever had. 

Getting the Most Out Of It 

There are some things which you can do to make sure that you get the most out of this experience. The first thing I’d say would be toughen up, you are going to get some brutal feedback at times and you have to take it on the chin and learn from it. Secondly make sure that you try everything, even if you have attended college to become an actor, take the chance to try your hand at set design or singing, you never know what you might unlock. And finally my advice would be to savor every day, don’t waste time on partying, that can come later, you should be head down and tail up, hustling every day to squeeze every last drop out of this experience.
