I've been teaching acting for 10 years and my students have gone on to enter OCSA, APPA, and Universities such as Cal State Fullerton, Chapman. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to go from your beginning goal and as time goes on you'll be able to achieve your intermediate goal. I specialize in broadway style, typically use free style and improve. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you

I wrote a 5-star review for Art after I had only one or two lessons. After having taken 3 or 4 more, I felt the need to write another one. In his profile, he said his students advance quickly, and he backs that up ten-fold. If you are serious about learning or improving your voice, and you follow his directions, you will advance quickly and you won't even realize it is happening until you are alone and you belt something out that you didn't know you could do. When you are stuck, he knows just what to do. Bottom-line, he gets fast results! As a business executive and a veteran, that is the strongest compliment I can give.

I highly recommend Art. He is very good at getting you right where you want to be, and he does it seamlessly. He will raise your game!!

I not only am seen as a teacher, but as a mentor as well. The one-on-one relationship that is built between my students and I is priority. I want my students to know that it is 100% okay to try something new and play with it, therefore, I provide a safe and encouraging environment.

It is important to me that my students get the most out of their training. I am a trained and working actor with a BFA in acting for both stage and screen. So whichever you are looking to train in, I can coach you in one or both areas.

Experience: I have directed and stage managed plays and musicals, have had previous experience teaching acting classes, and have been a camp counselor for youth acting camps.

I promise we will have a fun time while working hard!

My daughter took lessons from her a while back. She was simply wonderful. My daughter could not stop talking about how much fun she had working with Jace. She knows lots about who to go to for headshots and how to build a resume as well. I’m so grateful she was able to help my daughter pursue what she loves.
Clara
Having graduated in rigorous BFA acting for stage and screen program , and working in Los Angeles as an actor Jace has a wealth of knowledge about acting as well as the film industry. With her being a working actor she offered me so much insight about what you need to do for an audition as well as how to tweak my monologue to give it more layers. She goes with you step by step and makes you feel confident and safe. She works with you at your level and she made me feel confident going into my audition and self tapes. Seriously, she is so great!

Steven really helped my get my work to "industry-level". My callback ratio is thru the roof, and I got signed with an agency after only a few months of working with him.

While he isn't available very much, I always try to coach with Stephen for challenging projects. He always has good ideas for how to make my scenes more interesting or funny.

Stephen is the best! He was able to turn sides I had for a short four line audition for an episodic into a taped audition that booked me the job. I try to book him for every important audition I have.

I booked Hunter last-minute for help with a big audition, and I'm so glad I did. He was able to hone in on my strengths and give clarity to the script. While I didn't book the part, I did get a call-back, which was a pretty big deal for me. Totally recommend him if you want to up your game.

I love Roberta. She is so knowledgeable, professional and friendly...a wonderful combination to have in a teacher. She is patient and thorough. I would highly recommend her.
Beverly
Roberta is everything you would want in a teacher. She is exceptionally talented herself and knows how to share her knowledge with others. She is especially very kind and nurturing in an environment which could be quite intimidating for a beginner like me. You can tell she truly enjoys teaching and gets excited to see her pupil learn. I have learned so much in a short time.

"I don't know about you (yes you, the one reading this), but I've been secretly wanting to act my whole life and am a full of life personality with hidden insecurities. Even though I have never really acted professionally, I have been theatrical and playing all sorts of characters, speaking in accents and dancing to everything in front of the mirror, in comfortable social gatherings and have even put on shows for my pets and husband! Last time I acted "professionally" was in a high school play. And even then, I mostly helped make the props!

I tell you this, because, with that kind of a background, nervous and yet SO excited to JUST TRY, I chose Christian as my teacher- my professor of Acting!

I am 3 classes in and Christian is very supportive, non-judgemental and extremely easy to learn with. I am impressed with his skills, his ability to immediately decipher something I'm trying to explain, and then how easy he makes it for me to put his constructive feedback into practice. The practice is not easy... because that stuff always takes hard work, but he explains it all so easily so I can start practicing and exploring the acting world. He is honest about the acting world, the people in it and the various steps it takes to get to wherever you are trying to get! So be honest with yourself and let this be an authentic and fun experience! Plus, it's so nice to talk to someone that actually gets what it's like to be dreaming!

Thanks Christian!"
