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!

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.
Bob N.
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!!

Regina
I’m a very shy and timid person when I first meet people and it’s something I’ve always struggled with. From the moment Tristan became my teacher though his warm and friendly demeanor helped me get past this struggle almost immediately. He was always willing to teach at a pace that best suited me but also made sure to push me when I needed it. While the lessons with him only lasted for a short period, the experience was worth it. He helped me tune my singing practice to a higher standard and helped me better express the emotions that were being portrayed in each song. Beyond that, he also found moments of fun where we could goof off and relax, even for just a moment, to help calm my anxieties and get me out of my head when I started getting too frustrated or upset with myself for messing up. Despite being on the younger side, Tristan helped me with not only my singing and acting, but helped me better break out of my shell and have more confidence in myself.
Jonathan Stinson, DMA
Tristan was my voice student for 5 years. He has a extensive knowledge of voice technique. He has a very healthy approach to his own singing and he demands the same of his students!
Kim Marie Lesso
Tristan was employed by my Academy as an Assistant Summer Camp Director. His position required him to teach both acting and singing to our students. He also stepped up and took the Director's position staging and choreographing the skits/extrapolations from Musicals the students performed their last day before an audience.

Tristan has a real great intuition as the to style of learner he works with. He is very quick to taylor his lessons to the needs, performance level and learning style of the student.

I highly recommend Tristan Lesso for your Acting or Vocal lesson needs! He just finished Suma Cum Laude with a Master's Degree in Vocal Performance in Musical Theatre at the Number 1 University for his degree...NYU Steinhardt.

Acting is being! Easy to say, but trust me it's very hard to do. The way you are is the way you act. My class is dedicated to helping students understand who you are which is the basic skills required in order to develop the art of being through monologues or scenes from plays or movies. A lot of acting exercises will help develop your acting skills as well as help you find the motivation for every action you take, even breathing.
