Here are a few tips to help you learn your lines for a play, poem, or script off-by-heart!
- Read your lines out loud! By saying your lines aloud it will help you remember them.
- Ask mum or dad to help you! Having your parents practice with you will mean someone else can prompt or cue you if you miss a line.
- Morning and night! Make a routine of practicing your lines once every morning, as the first thing you do when you was up, and once every night just before you go to sleep.
- Record yourself! Record, or even film yourself saying you lines then watch or listen to this over and over saying your lines while it plays.
- Practice in the shower! Print a copy of your lines and laminate it to take in the shower with you!
- Learn your cues! Learn the lines just before your’s so you know when your line is coming into the script, this will help you feel more confident about delivering your lines.
- Practise, practise, practise! The best way to learn lines off-by-heart is to practice at every chance you get… in the car, in the shower, after dinner, all the time!
