RSM Academy of Performing Arts offer a One Year Musical Theatre Diploma, providing an intensive, gratifying fast-track into the industry. This course is suitable for those who demonstrate willingness to work hard, determination to succeed, passion for performance and the mindset to absorb the masses of experience and knowledge held by our skilled team.

Our course is designed in such a way that it will provide a ‘true to life’ portrayal and an honest perception will be gained of the rigorous nature of the performance industry. The course has been purpose-structured to ensure each student completes the course fully prepared to continue on their ‘performance journey’ and with a broad knowledge of the industry’s demands.

As a team, we realise that a three-year course is not always best suited to every student due to an array of reasons. It is evident that our concentrated, yet highly in-depth one-year course, combined with the opportunities we provide and the commitment, passion and professionalism we carry as staff and also instil in our students, grants them the best possible stepping stone into the performance industry.

RSM Academy of Performing Arts deliver training over three terms, each approximately 12 weeks in length leading to a Vocational Diploma in Musical Theatre and ATCL Performing (Musical Theatre) from Trinity College London. Training can be continued to achieve Trinity College London LTCL Performing (Musical Theatre) Diploma which also allows students the opportunity to progress into teaching.

The Academy accepts an exclusive number of entrants each year for the course, allowing all students to receive specifically tailored training, one to one guidance and close assessment which supports the maximisation of their potential in all areas. We take a more personal approach to the training we deliver and appreciate the individuality of each entrant.

Due to the nature of the performance industry, the fast pace at which standards increase and the high expectations of clients; we encourage and support all students in becoming proficient in all three of the key disciplines. Our course has been structured to provide training of equal demand to that of the professional industry, training includes: Singing, Dancing, Acting, Industry Education, Audition Technique, Performance, Professional Advice and Seminars, Showcases and Musical Productions.

One of the highlights of our course structure are our ‘themed weeks’ and Guest Teacher days. Each week will have a focal point, per discipline, providing students with a structure to their development. Guest Teacher Day will see a professional practitioner visit the Academy to teach classes, seminars or workshops for all students. RSM Academy of Performing Arts have strong relationships with a wide range of professionals, expert in their disciplines, who can share their experiences in the industry, working in West End, Broadway, Film, TV and the Music Industry.
