Caroline Laver
 

Principal/Vocal teacher

Caroline has had a passion for singing from an early age and is a regular performer. Her passion is to create music, teaching individuals, groups, and choirs. She has performed across the country and in Europe in bands, choirs, and as a soloist. She started teaching in 2007 after a career move from magazine publishing - although theatre was never far away, as one of the main client's Caroline worked for was Andrew Lloyd Webber's Really Useful Theatre Company. Caroline loves to see people of all ages discover their potential, gain confidence, and grow as performers.

HISTORY
 

In 2018 Caroline Laver took on the reigns of NJT performing arts school (previously The Academy) based in Coggeshall. After a renaming and rebranding, Laver's Academy was born. The reputation of this theatrical arts school has gone from strength to strength.  A safe place for students to hone their skills as actors, dancers and singers with teachers who all have a passion for teaching and provide lessons which give every student the tools they need to reach their potential. We are proud to watch our students gain confidence and also build long standing friendships. Many of our students have gone on to performing arts colleges after their GCSEs and A levels. As well as gaining work as actors. 

 

As with many businesses, the COVID 19 pandemic of 2020 meant we had to close our doors, and had the heartbreaking decision to cancel our performance of Oliver. 

When restrictions allowed, we came back in 2021 with drama only sessions, and a few of our students were finally able to enter their LAMDA examinations. Pleased to say they all received Distinctions, which is fantastic since most of their learning was done online.

As time goes on, more services and exciting workshops will be added to our services.
