English Coaching
for Arts Professionals


Speak English without Compromising Your Message

Gigs & Jams

Art careers are made by people clicking with each other in one context and reaching out in another.

It all feels informal, but within such gigs and jams are opportunities to impress,  promote yourself and propel your career forward.

Gigs & Jams is English coaching that is NOT about telling you who to be or what to say, but helping you to the tools to be YOURSELF in English.

Don’t compromise your message.

Own your English.

Why Do Creatives Need Specialist English Training?

English for Creative Careers is not (as many people think), just art and design vocabulary wrapped in general English.

English for creatives rehearses all the language skills YOU need to make, promote and present creative work as an L2 English user across international art & design professions.

Creatives: choose a skilled, experienced English teacher/coach with a professional background in the arts. 

Their experience is the bridge between the language you need and being art career-ready.
