Welcome Aaron Newland-Bentley, the vocal coach of our NEW London Boot Camp


Youth Music Theatre UK has an unwavering reputation for creating the brightest new musical theatre projects and courses, led by trailblazing creative teams from West End, Fringe, Repertoire and Broadway theatre. And in the year of our 15th anniversary, this is no exception, especially in the case of our *NEW*Musical Theatre Boot Camp taking place 13 – 18 August in London.

Aaron Newland-Bentley is a highly sought after singing consultant and has taught at some of the countries top drama schools.  He’s even delivered training to clients in many West End productions such as The Book of Mormon, Motown, Hairspray and Matilda!  His expertise has prepared numerous students for professional auditions and helped aspiring performers to gain entrance into some of the countries best institutions and he can coach you too at the Musical Theatre Boot Camp!

The YMT Musical Theatre Boot Camp comprises 60 hours of intensive tuition, rehearsals and masterclasses spread over a 6-day residential retreat, aimed to equip you with the unique skillset and knowledge needed to be competitive and to excel in the theatre industry. Whilst the course is beneficial for everyone, it is particularly beneficial for those interested in auditioning for drama school or conservatoire at undergraduate or postgraduate levels, which is why we believe Aaron is the perfect vocal coach for this course!.

Aaron has a passion for Musical Theatre and a keen interest in the integration of singing and acting.  He is a strong believer in voice work as athletic training and emphasises the balance between craft and artistry.  With that being said, Aaron will test your skills and challeng you vocally during the new 6-day, intensive residential Boot Camp. During the course, participants will have the opportunity to explore different approaches to making new music theatre and cross arts developments, including styles used in physical theatre, mask and Commedia dell’arte, as well as traditional musical theatre and performance techniques.

There is still an opportunity to BOOK ON to the London Musical Theatre Boot Camp to train under Aaron and the other creatives, but be sure to book soon as spaces are limited!
