About Me

*** Specialties ***
I was taught piano following the Alfred method and books, but when I started teaching piano, I found children are better with the Bastien books. It takes things slower, give more examples for concepts and allows for more interaction. For young pianists, it lays everything down on the line for them.
For the clarinet (and bass clarinet), I was taught, and teach, with the Rubank books. These books are very clear with different techniques, as well as theory, and gives many opportunities for teachers to expand with their own teachings.
I also teach/tutor music theory and literature. I have a passion for both of these, and pass this on to my students.

About Me

Do you want a teacher who keeps you motivated and focused, who can show you all the skills of a well-rounded musician in a relaxed, friendly environment? I am the teacher for you! With a solid foundation in classical technique and experience as a jazz performer, we will tailor a plan for you to achieve your dreams in any style.

Jordan was born and raised in the El Centro, California where he began playing the alto sax in the elementary band program. At the age of 12, he began his study of guitar and drums, performing in several rock and ska bands around his home town and San Diego. At age 14, is where he found his love for brass instruments when he took up the trombone. While in high school he became a featured soloist with the Imperial Valley College Jazz Orchestra, under the direction of the legendary trumpeter Jimmy Cannon. It was this that lead Jordan to accept the Constance Weldon Music Scholarship to attend the University of Miami in Coral Gables, FL.

While performing in South Florida Jordan appeared with major acts including 10,000 Maniacs, and appeared on the Spanish television show "Calle Ocho." He also gained invaluable experience teaching in Miami public schools. His first teaching assignment was at Hialeah-Miami Lakes Senior High School where he directed 3 beginning bands, Concert Band, Wind Ensemble, and their highly decorated Jazz Band. Later Jordan moved into the elementary setting, teaching vocal and instrumental music for grades K-5 at Cypress Elementary.

In 2007, Jordan returned to California to pursue a music career in San Diego. He can be seen performing all over San Diego, Orange, and LA Counties in styles ranging from rock, jazz, funk, blues, hip-hop, Latin, and more. He performs primarily on trombone, piano, and guitar, but is known to pick up percussion, harmonica, and other wind instruments as well. Jordan, along with the rest of the aggressively funky cover band SuperMagnetic, were the grand prize winner of the 2010 Viejas Ultimate Music Challenge 4. In 2011, Tori Roze & The Hot Mess were nominated for a San Diego Music Award in the category of "Best Blues Artist" after the release of their first album "From The Hip." They released their second album "Turbulence" last December, and are heard regularly on local San Diego radio. This album has also been nominated for Best Pop album for the 2013 San Diego Music Awards. This spring, Jordan completed his Master of Music degree in Jazz Studies from San Diego State University.

On stage, Jordan is a talented and versatile performer. He is known for his trombone sound and improvisational ability, as well as his positive relationship with his fellow musicians. In lessons, Jordan is energetic and creative.

*** Lesson Details ***
I enjoy teaching kids and adults of all ages. When I arrive for our first lesson, we'll start by getting to know your musical tastes and aspirations. Then we make a plan. Then we play!

Everybody's path is different, but we must start with a strong foundation in the fundamentals. After we start to establish some technique on your instrument we will explore music that suits you from a practical stand point in your development, and very importantly, stylistically. Together we will plan a curriculum that keeps you motivated toward your goals and that fits your life style.

You can expect a laid back, yet focused environment. Most of all, you can look forward to progress! Hope to see you soon.

Arianne W. San Diego, CA

Subjects Taught

Clarinet, Music Performance, Oboe, Piano

About Me

I have been an instrumental performer for 20 years. As a child, I began my classical training on the piano. At age 10, I began studying the oboe. Throughout my musical career, I have always performed with the highest level ensembles and have received high marks and rewards over the years. Because of my dedication to and passion for music, I chose a career as a music educator. I followed that path and graduated from the University of Tennessee School of Music in 2008 with a B.A. in Music Education.

I now have been teaching music for 6 years. During my junior year of college, I started teaching privately as an oboe instructor for middle and high school students. Upon graduating in 2008, I moved to Tampa, Florida where I taught elementary music full time and continued to teach oboe and woodwind lessons privately. I also taught elementary music and private lessons in Dallas, Texas before moving to California. During my career, I have helped hundreds of students prepare for and have success in dozens of performances. I am excited for you to be another student for me to guide on a musical journey!

*** Lesson Details ***
It is important to me that all students have a strong background in the basic building blocks of music. I will work with you during each lesson to strengthen these technical skills. It is equally important to me that students be creative when performing on their instrument. Together, we will choose music that fits your interests and sparks your creativity and imagination.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will provide recordings for students to listen to and solo sheet music. I expect students to have a music stand, instrument, basic methods books, a tuner (where applicable) and a metronome.

*** Specialties ***
As a classically trained oboist and pianist, this is typically the style that I specialize in. However, in addition to teaching technique and what is "on the page", I try to help students realize their full creative potential in making their "voice" heard as they play their instruments. I also like students to always be working on a solo performance piece and scales.

I received my Associate of Arts degree at Grossmont, College with an emphasis on music education. I am now attending San Diego State University to finish my Bachelor's degree in Music.

My lessons consist of exercises that emphasize proper techniques for each instrument. I would like my students to fully understand the entire musical process, including theory. I tailor my lessons according to the needs of each individual person.

My students have told me that they enjoy my lessons, made more enjoyable because of a good sense of humor, while at the same time being very serious about the lesson content. I include parents/guardians by informing them of lesson requirements, and am available to answer their questions.

My goal is to share the joy that music brings to each life. I'm looking forward to meeting you.
