*** Lesson Details ***
I encourage my students to pursue all types of music. I like to use “method books” to help with reading and music theory no matter which instrument they choose. I always use supplemental materials that follow the student’s interests and level. I often use technology in lessons to motivate and help students grow. For example, I use many apps for theory, note reading, and rhythm training.
A cancellation 24hrs in advance is always appreciated.

*Recorded on national tv ads including Coca-Cola, Dreyer's, KFC.
*Over 7,000 private lessons taught to over 300 students.
*More than five years of classr
*Students have included: ages 4-96, beginners with no experience, undergraduate music majors, scholarship award winners, members of the San Diego Youth Symphony program, many locals in San Diego, and online students from around the world.
My mission is to provide a positive musical experience for all students. For some this includes rigorous preparation for an audition of some kind, for others it may be an introduction to music fundamentals to foster better listening skills and greater artistic appreciation. All students will be challenged to improve their listening, timing, and technique. All students will learn to play songs that they love.
Students get a minimum of one lesson per week. I am not able to schedule lessons every other week.
Recommendations for best results:
1. Make a three-month commitment to weekly lessons.
2. Practice at least three times a week, for a minimum of 15 minutes each time.
This formula virtually guarantees results. Bring your instrument, music books, and a binder with sheet protectors ☺
No Cancellations. If the student is unable to attend a lesson as scheduled I will use the time to email a video lesson to the student. Other alternatives: online lesson, reschedule, add time to next lesson (based on availability). Students may put lessons on hold up to once per quarter with at least one week notice.
To continue weekly lessons, students must maintain at least 90% attendance or the time slot may be forfeited.
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 soloist with the Imperial Valley College Jazz Orchestra, under the direction of former Basie trumpeter Jimmy Cannon. 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. 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. In 2013, 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.
You can expect a laid back, yet focused environment. Most of all, you can look forward to progress! Hope to see you soon.

Would you like to learn how to play the drums? Maybe you already play but have a song that you are struggling with or you would just like to learn how to read music. Well look no further. Born and raised to play music I spent my middle and highschool years learning how to play the drums in all styles. I'm classically trained on just about any percussion instrument you can name (timpanis, cabasa, glockenspiel, snare, bass drum, toms, bells, marimba, xylaphone,ect.), jazz trained on the drum set and I was the drumline captain at Royal Highschool in Simi Valley California if you want to learn marching techniques as well. If you are willing to put in the practice then I can guide you into becoming the drummer you have always wanted to be.
When I got out of highschool I didn't persue a career in music like I should have. I curently play drums for fairview baptist church in Portsmouth Virginia. Drumming is my lost passion and I would like to teach other people the gift of music.

I have been teaching privately for over 9 years and playing since the age of 6. My studies have taken me through music performance programs at William Paterson University, Manhattan School of Music, and The Drummers Collective. I've performed at venues throughout the country in a wide variety of musical settings (jazz, rock, theater, marching band, etc). Lessons are focused on each individual student's musical interests and a strong foundation on the instrument. From beginners to professionals, lessons will be tailored to fit the student's needs and goals.
Although my formal education is focused on jazz, I perform and teach many styles of music. I am as comfortable playing/teaching rock and metal as I am with jazz and world music. Beginners to advanced players are all welcome,
The lessons are flexible based on each student's specific needs and interests. I want the student to have a relationship with music and the instru
I am by no means a perfect drummer, but I have 6 years of experience in playing. I have played all types of percussion. I would be delighted to help you build a solid foundation for your future in being a drummer.
