Drama & Singing Classes | BEXD Create
BEXD Create runs kids’ singing and drama classes at many locations around Brisbane. Their focus is on building confidence and helping to foster creativity and self-expression.
About the classes
BEXD Create fosters a space to help kids build self-confidence, self-awareness, focus and the ability to find joy through creative expression. Their aim is that students leave their classes not just being better singers or actors, but also feeling more confident to answer questions at school, share their own ideas, explore their imagination and make new friends.
Kids’ Drama and Singing Classes
Drama – A place to play, explore and create
In these drama classes, kids explore their creativity through improvisation and role-playing games, sharing stories, creating characters, art activities and movement games.
If your child is a born performer, these classes will give them a space to hone their skills and release some of their creativity energy. If your child is shy and struggles to talk in social settings, these classes will provide a pathway for them to build confidence. It’s normal for kids to be nervous, and the teachers acknowledge and talk about that. These teachers help new students gradually feel more comfortable with nerves and that it is okay to make mistakes. Making mistakes can be scary. That’s true for all of us. For children, the fear of failure can stop them from taking chances, expressing their opinions, or making friends. By giving kids permission to be silly, take creative risks and not be afraid of judgement, these classes foster self-confidence and build skills that kids will use in every aspect of their life, not just on a stage or a film set.
Drama Class Locations: Newmarket, Sherwood and Rochedale
Singing – Helping kids find their voices
Incorporating all of the above under ‘Drama’, BEXD Create’s drama and singing classes also explore the voice. Kids learn about pitch, tone, volume, rhythm and breathing. Some kids have trouble being loud, some kids love being loud! Everyone is different. In these classes, kids are given permission to make silly, loud, quiet, high and low noises. As the age groups progress, kids look at singing in cannons and harmonies and will look at what makes a ‘good singer’ and how to sing healthily.
The voice is our most powerful tool for communication. Learning the fundamentals of singing can be hugely beneficial, even for those who don’t want to be singers. Every style and genre is welcome, although these teachers specialise in Musical Theatre and Pop music.
Drama & Singing Class Locations: Brookfield, Beachmere, North Lakes, Sherwood and Chermside
Classes are held after school during school terms.
Who can attend?
All experience levels are welcome at BEXD Create! Their teachers have experience with incredibly shy children and neurodiverse children. If you have any specific questions about whether these classes are right for your child, please get in touch with the team at BEXD Create.
Trial classes are available if you would like to try out the class before committing to the whole term.
The BEXD Create Teachers
BEXD Create’s teachers are passionate about fostering an inclusive space in their classes and helping each student develop tools for long-life learning, creativity and self-expression. Their collective experience in the arts industry has taught them that awareness and positive mental health practices are so important for actors, musicians and performers at every age. All of their teachers are experienced and qualified to work with your kids and have impressive backgrounds in the arts industry in film, stage acting and musical theatre.
My child doesn’t want to sing, can they just do drama? Yes. BEXD Create run drama-only classes in Newmarket and Rochedale.
My child loves to sing or act at home but is very shy in front of others. What can I do to help them? Reach out, ask questions and give it a go. BEXD Create have trial classes for this purpose. It’s normal to feel nervous when we express ourselves in front of others and try new things. Encouragement and validation go a long way. Often having a place outside the immediate comfort zone (at home/with family) where your child can play with being creative and sharing that creativity in a safe environment is the best thing to help them come out of their shell. It can be uncomfortable to start with and that’s okay. It may not be the right class or the right time for your child and that’s okay too, but BEXD Create encourages everyone to give it a go.
