I'm a teacher, director and all-around guide for actors who want to go out and audition for roles. I provide guidance to seasoned actors by helping them fine-tune both their audition technique and the monologues they choose perform. I lend that critical "outside eye" to help them become aware of what they're actually doing in their piece(s) (details of which they may be unaware); to guide them towards their strengths as an actor (which could be very different than how they think they should be approaching/performing a piece); and to aid them in shaping the monologue into a complete, engaging, performance piece.

For beginners, I introduce them to the basics of good audition/acting technique; help guide them towards monologues that are not only appropriate, but strong choices for them individually; and as with my veteran students, help them shape their pieces into strong, entertaining, 1-2 minute works of theater that underscore the strengths they bring to the table as an actor.

I'm really pleased with the work that Madeline is doing with my daughter.

Madeline is a really kind and enthusiastic instructor. She helped me feel comfortable with my voice and validated my singing, granted I'm not the best singer. I think that's a really great start to singing. I was starting to see some growth in my singing because Madeline helped me become more aware of my body and singing, but I had to discontinue lessons because of certain life circumstances. Would totally recommend.

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’m also a BFA Musical Theatre Major where I have continued to train in all areas of dance. I’m also a dance teacher at a company called Show on the Road.
