BeXD Create runs kids’ singing and drama classes at many locations around Brisbane. Their classes are designed to help kids develop their technique, confidence and social skills while having fun with music and acting. Their aim is that students leave their classes not just being better singers, musicians or actors, but also feeling more confident to answer questions at school, share their own ideas, explore their imagination and make new friends.
Singing and Drama Classes
In these classes, students will explore the fundamentals of singing and drama through a variety of engaging activities. They will 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. Along with basic technique, they will learn how to create characters and enhance their storytelling abilities through song. Students will also have the opportunity to explore their imagination through drama improvisation games and movement exercises to aid their emotional expression. The instructors are passionate about fostering a safe and inclusive environment for all students and helping each individual develop tools for lifelong learning, creativity, and self-expression. Whether your child is a beginner or has previous experience in singing and drama, BeXD Create’s classes welcome all skill levels and backgrounds.

“Katie and her husband Will are both the most beautiful and passionate souls to learn from. A lot of people may teach music, but few genuinely want to see people shine. I would HIGHLY recommend them to absolutely anyone and everyone.” – Varshi, student
“My child has started with BeXD weekly drama classes in term 2 and has absolutely loved them! It has been a great and safe space for him to express his inner actor. The teachers are fantastic. He also joined in for the school holiday musical workshop and performed in his first on stage production – High School Musical. Not only did he enjoy the week of workshop but LOVED performing for all the families and friends at the end of the week. It was also a great show for the parents to enjoy. Highly recommend BeXD Create!!!” – Renee, parent
“I have had both group and private classes for singing with Will. He is one of the kindest and most patient people I’ve ever met. His positive attitude and in depth knowledge make him a a great teacher. He has a brilliant ear and techniques that create improvement you can see instantly. I have seen him teach every level, and he treats everyone with the same care and respect. In terms of songwriting I have seen a musical he co-wrote, so I have no doubt of his skills in that field also.” – Kristy, student

Can I trial a group class before I pay for the whole term? Yes! Paid trial classes are offered before you commit to the whole term. These can be booked via their website www.bexdcreate.com
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 goes 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.
My child has special needs, are these classes suitable? Neurodiverse children are very welcome in these classes. BEXD Create have assistant teachers to offer extra support to any children who need it. These classes are suitable for most physical disabilities, just send an email to double check at email@example.com
Do I stay with my child during class? Nope! You just drop them off and the teachers take it from there. If you wish to stay with your child, the BeXD Create instructors are likely to ask you to participate, as they have found it lead to a much more positive experience for the students and if parents are sitting and watching it can be distracting or scary.
Are there any holiday workshops available? BEXD Create run holiday workshops during most school holiday periods. Follow them on Facebook or join their newsletter to stay up to date with upcoming workshops.
