1-2-1 Consultations

Video: Rebecca Kenyon, Mote of Dust Films

Paul L Martin provides insight, advice and support, slanted towards honing the artistic content of an act/routine.

Sessions take place in South London in a safe, calm space in which to help focus your mind on furthering your career. 1-2-1 consultations are tailor-made to suit the needs of the individual with a sliding scale of prices depending on how many sessions you book (see chart below).

Paul has been in the variety business as a performer, producer, promoter and agent for 25+ years and still performs as a host & singer as well as sharing his knowledge with others.

Paul has been instrumental in campaigning for cabaret sections in Time Out, Lastminute.com, and Edinburgh Festival; runs workshops and lectures on the art of cabaret; has written articles on the genre and created the London Cabaret Awards.

Paul has the ability, rare in coaches yet most necessary in my opinion, to see the individual, not the “student”. He listens, is very astute and doesn’t pull any punches. Emily Davis, Cabaret Singer

A big YES. Invaluable advice and support.  Jo Marsh AKA Jo-Jo Bellini, Cabaret Singer

I recommend Paul wholeheartedly. I have learnt so much from him over the last year and I am sure there is still much more to learn. Sarah Tullamore, Cabaret Singer
