Live performance is at the heart of LJMA and we believe strongly that quality education in the classroom can only take you so far. The real education comes from the stage. Our students are offered more than 35 live performance opportunities per year where they learn to handle the audience, make them laugh, create a story, and build emotion in their performances all while perfecting their performance. Performing may seem daunting for the new performer, but the more you do, the easier it becomes, which is why we offer so many.  This is incredible for character building and even the shyest of students find their voice. 


Performance opportunities are offered to students based on their current ability level. The more advanced you become the more professional the setting until eventually, you are performing like a real artist.
