Jordan was an awesome piano teacher, really focusing on what I was interested in and structuring a lesson around that. He also gave me materials to use at home and helped me create a practice structure that would be beneficial to my growth. Great teacher!

"“You can play a shoestring if you're sincere." - John W. Coltrane

About Adrián

Adrián Terrazas-G.: Born on October 17, 1975, and raised in Chihuahua, Chihuahua, México, Adrian Terrazas-G. grew up surrounded by the traditional music of Central America from Danzón, Boleros and Rumba, to Son and Mambo. Terrazas-G. began developing his musical ability starting at the age of eleven. He was inclined to play the tenor saxophone and the flute with an understanding of classical music and a distinct attraction to jazz, and five years later chose to take on the clarinet. His grandmother, a "Danzón Nut" according to Terrazas-G., urged her grandson in that direction, but the young player was adamant towards a newfound paragon for himself: John W. Coltrane.

2001 was a year that would have a profound impact on Terrazas-G.’s music. ...

Adrian is an absolutely amazing teacher, what we accomplished in just a few hours was more than I've learned with other instructors in years of studying. On top of being as studied as they come in my opinion, Adrian was so personable it was easy to communicate right off the bat. If you are looking for a music teacher, who will show you the proper way to do things musically and is as hip as they come, Adrian is your guy!

I have been listening Adrian's music for the last ten years or so.
I had the chance to met him and it was a good experience.
He has been playing with Mexicans and Americans musicians at a high level doing concerts and recording around the world.
I was surprised when I met him. Because even though he has been touring, recording and writing music with the best musician in California and Mexico. He is a simple and humble man. By the way, he also won a Grammy by his work with The Mars Volta. And of course he is a great teaching, aware and worried about your music life and your daily life as well.

He escuchado la música de Adrián por los últimos diez años o más.
Tuve la oportunidad de conocerlo y fue una buena experiencia.
Ha participado con músicos estodaunidenses y mexicanos a un nivel muy alto, haciendo conciertos y haciendo grabaciones en estudio importantes, en todo el mundo.
Quedé sorprendido el día que lo conocí. Porque incluso tocando, grabando y haciendo música con los mejores músicos de California y México. Él es simple, humilde y sencillo. Por cierto, Adrián fue ganador de un Grammy debido a su trabajo con The Mars Volta. Y por supues es un gran maestro e instructor, conciente y preocupado por tu vida musical y tu vida diaria.
