Student Experience: Cameron

2013 Graduate, Musical Theatre

I graduated last year. I still can’t believe how much I have learnt or the range of new skills I now have to draw upon.

You get to work with some of the best in the business and the training is incredible.

I am so grateful to have been a part of MGA but even more than that, I’m amazed that even after graduating they continue to support and push you to achieve your dreams through the MGA Management & Casting agency. I had professional work opportunities throughout my training and a full-time job lined up even before my graduation.

Where else in Scotland can you get trained by people who are still working in the performing arts industry and who can personally introduce you to casting directors, choreographers, directors and producers to ensure that you are always ‘in the right place at the right time’? I honestly don’t think there is anywhere else quite like MGA.

Merry Christmas from MGA

MGA would like to wish you all a very merry Christmas, and a magical New Year!

We had a wonderful night on Monday at the Usher Hall, with over 200 students from both Full-time and Junior Schools bringing in enough Christmas cheer to keep us going through the holidays.

Professional standard performance opportunities are what The MGA Academy of Performing Arts is all about. Treating our students like professional performers means that by the time they graduate they are ready for anything.» Read more
