I have two sons that have been taking lessons with Jordan for 10 months. He is teaching both my sons, one the guitar and the other piano. I have used one previous instructor from takelessons.com for piano lessons and he was good. However, Jordan does not constantly reschedule lessons and I can see more progress in how fast my son is learning and his enthusiasm to learn. I am happy I switched my son who plays the piano to Jordan, whom was already teaching my other son guitar.

Key Points:
Jordan, is good at assessing a student’s abilities and interests and adjusting his lessons accordingly

He makes the lessons fun and challenging.

He has gone out of his way to learn about my sons and their interests, so when they were introduced to guitar and piano, they were able to learn and play music that they already enjoyed listening to

He is a gifted musician but also highly skilled at teaching. He works well with families and has a flexible schedule.

He is fair but firm with students

The highlight for me was hearing my sons have a jam session together

Jordan has a wonderful ability to relate to people. He has excellent skill and enthusiasm, making my sons WANT to learn.

I would highly recommend him as a teacher.

Jordan is amazing, he can just learn a song by ear the first time he hears it, I’ve been working with him for a little over a year and I never thought I’d be able to do that, but my ear has really started to develop. He always offers positive critique, never negative and always patient!!

Jordan is a great instructor! My seven-year-old son took online lessons over the summer and learned a lot of basics in that short period of time. Jordan is very patient and really tunes in to what his student responds to and makes lessons engaging and fun. We look forward to signing up for more!

Jordan is a good dude! In two practices I have learned more than most years of lessons. Feel like on a path to not just playing guitar, but understanding it. Also, first teacher ever that I'm not watching him play his guitar the whole time. He watches, listens, and gives excercises to learn and improve.

Great teacher and very easy to talk to or ask questions. He clearly understands my needs and adjusts to meet my expectations. I'd recommend Jordan to anyone interested in learning how to play an instrument.

My boys lived their lessons. Ages 4 and 8, I was a little nervous that they would lose focus, but Jordan kept their attention the entire time. They can't wait until next week!

Jordan is an excellent teacher, he can play just about anything on the guitar and he teaches you how to teach yourself. Ive been with Jordan for 3 years and I've gone from complete beginner to being in a band myself. I used to feel so overwhelmed and didn't know which direction to go,now i know how to learn a song on my own and how to build up my technique,i can improve on my own. Jordan is a great teacher and he pushed me and i'm super lucky to have found him. p.s.... Jordan is super beast of a guitar player too, i have my own band now but i still haven't seen anyone that's better than him

Jordan is an amazing and talented teacher! He has so much experience and it shows with all his music knowledge. My son has learned so much from him. He is patient and positive all the time. Having him cone to our house makes our busy lives easier. We feel blessed that we have found him. We are looking forward to many more years of music with Jordan.

Jordan is a great teacher. I had never played guitar before and was surprised by how much of what I learned in my first lesson actually sounded like a song. I'm looking forward to my next lesson!

I have been to 4 guitar teachers over the past couple of years and Jordan is the best! His passion for music is inspiring and you can just feel that he loves sharing his wisdom and knowledge. He is PATIENT which is so important, and he really knows how to explain things in a way to make you understand.
