‘I studied with the Associated Studios London in their 4 month part-time professional program in 2014. The wealth of knowledge gained, personal growth achieved and lifelong relationships developed throughout the time was remarkable. I recommend the studio and it’s teaching to anyone out there starting out in the field or looking to finesse their craft. As an Aussie who flew to London for this training, I am thrilled at the news of its opening in Melbourne and can’t wait for the future generation of Australian Musical Theatre artists to have the opportunity to thrive like I did.’ – Rachael Ward (Evita, Singin’ in the Rain & The Wizard of Oz)

‘Associated Studios opened up many doors for me.  This course is unique and fresh. Constantly working with industry professionals keeps you ready and seen.
