NIDA Acting graduate, Morgan Maguire, has worked as an acting tutor for NIDA Open Program, NIDA VET School, Actors Centre Australia and the Australian National Theatre School in Melbourne. Morgan also is a graduate of the Masters in Coaching Psychology from The University of Sydney.
Morgan has privately tutored students in acting and audition techniques with a very high success rate for Drama School acceptance. Her private students have been accepted into NIDA, WAAPA, VCA, QUT, Griffith and Actors Centre Australia.
"Working with Morgan was a game-changing experience for me. Morgan opened my eyes to the craft involved in performing and the possibilities that were open to me on the stage. I came to Morgan having learned my script but not having any confidence in how I performed or moved on stage, and after a few short weeks of classes I felt confident enough to walk into my auditions for Drama Schools totally confident in my ability to be the best I could be. I wouldn’t be living my dream of studying at NIDA right now had it not been for Morgan’s knowledge, kindness, and commitment to me and my goals."

"Working with Morgan gave me the confidence to walk in to my audition feeling prepared and relaxed. The expertise and experience she shared helped me to navigate what can seem to be a daunting and unpredictable process. With Morgan I discovered new things about my pieces in every session that helped me to find the freedom in preparation!"

"Morgan was an incredible teacher and mentor when preparing for my drama school auditions. I was applying for many different courses, so her guidance kept me organised and on top of the different requirements for each course. Her methods were easy to understand and she was always clear when giving advice. She even got to know me and helped choose monologues that showed off who I was as an individual, rather than letting me use the same old monologues heard so regularly by the audition panel. With Morgan’s help I got into the competitive 2019 intake of Musical Theatre students at the Queensland Conservatorium, Griffith University."

"I absolutely loved my time working with Morgan to prepare for my audition to ACA. I had never done a proper audition before and did not know where to start. Morgan offered a complete preparation starting from finding excellent monologues, to acting tips, industry insights, confidence building as well as more specific craft work. I went into my monologue feeling prepared and confident. Morgan's support was there all the way and I felt that I could call her up at any point if I had a freak out. I didn’t need to because I had put the work in on the floor with Morgan’s passionate, creative and clear guidance. I’m now halfway through my BA in Stage and Screen and I’ll always be grateful to Morgan. Highly recommended if you are serious about getting into Drama school or just honing your craft."
