As an accomplished Actor, Producer, Director, and Acting Coach, Jason James has garnered himself a voice for the theatrical community. With multiple acting acknowledgements under his belt and a groundbreaking achievement during his tenure at the Sturges Center for the Fine Arts as Producing Artistic Director, Mr. James is a true creative force to be studied. And for very good reason, with more than twenty years of experience, Mr. James understands the importance of integrating solid fundamental acting techniques with the key principle of understanding "why" into the developing repertoire of an actor.
Mr. Jason James has brought this same mindset and mastery into his current creative endeavor, The Actor’s Establishment, affectionately known as TAE. TAE doesn't just teach actors technique. An open space is created so the actor can establish who he or she is as an artist. Mr. James incorporates his past teaching and lecturing credits and unique perspective to meet each artist where they are, while giving them a safe atmosphere to guide and equip them along their acting journey.
Jason James is both L.A.’s best-kept secret and a growing force to be reckoned with in teaching actors about their ever-growing industry. He holds a BFA in Musical Theatre from AMDA, College and Conservatory of the Performing Arts and is completing his MFA in Performance Pedagogy from Loyola Marymount University.
“I teach because of the passion I have for instilling quality fundamentals in the technique of acting.”
