Take Your Acting To The

Next Level

With Our

World Class 


It was great to work with a professional director who was very down to earth and shared my curiosities about text and interpretation. 

- Z.K. (2021)

It's the best way to prepare and become the character ... hands down.

I just did a performance via Zoom and they thought someone took over my body.

I nailed it.

- G.R. (2021)

I feel I have grown in acting technique and developed a deeper appreciation of performances as an audience member.

 - Darlene (2020)

Jordan is an awesome vocal instructor! As a semi-accomplished vocalist, I learned valuable techniques that have taken my vocal capabilities to new heights. I strongly recommend to anyone looking to polish their voice to take his class.
