What people say . . . 

"I've been having lessons (group/private) with Bekki since I was in primary school and I'm now in 6th form. When I started with Bekki I had a huge lack of confidence (in myself and performing) but over these years she has really helped me and I have just achieved a distinction in my grade 6 LAMDA exam. The lessons are something I look forward in the week and not only do I feel prepared on the acting part but I feel very equipped in theory too. Bekki makes sure you really know your piece and your character."

"I would recommend having private lessons with Bekki as she is very experienced and puts a lot of preparation into her lessons and lets you experiment a lot with your pieces."

"Bekki has taught my son for the last 4 years. We aren't local to Bekki, but are happy to travel to her because she's one of the best."

"She is highly knowledgeable and experienced. She takes the time to get to know her students individually and works with them in a way that suits their learning style. She is extremely supportive and encouraging and loves nothing more than celebrating her students successes, of which there has been many."

"I had been looking for a private drama teacher for a while and did not hesitate to contact Bekki when she started to offer online lessons. It was the best decision we have made and although my son has attended drama lessons for years, he has learnt so much more in the last few weeks."

Having trained professionally at The Arts Educational school, Tring Park and Bush Davies School of Theatre Arts, I have performed in, choreographed and directed theatrical shows and performances for over 40 years.

I truly identified my passion for working with others in 1989 when I was awarded the LAMDA diploma in acting and have spent over 25 years coaching, and teaching drama to the highest possible standards.

I am the founder of NYA Young Actors which I set-up to provide my unique teaching to all.

Welcome to NYA Young Actors.


"Bekki is a lovely lady and a fantastic teacher who genuinely cares for her students and wants them to do well. She has already arranged some fantastic opportunities and I would thoroughly recommend her." 

"Bekki is an excellent teacher. She brings the best out of her students and makes them realise their true potential."

"Bekki is hands down the best acting teacher I have had. Her teaching style allows for one on one conversations about characters and technique which has really helped develop my understanding of characters and acting in general. Not only are her lessons extremely beneficial but she will go out of her way to help you. I highly recommend NYA!!."

"Bekki is committed and enthusiastic to providing lessons. My daughter has come such a long way both with acting and her general confidence/wellbeing since starting out, less than a year ago. In addition to the lessons, Bekki has been a valuable support to me as a parent, helping to access opportunities. Always approachable, definitely 5 stars."
