Hi, I'm Jordan! I am from the NYC area, currently living in Rochester, New York. I am a young, energetic, high level instrumentalist with a special interest in teaching music. I love teaching all kinds of music, especially to beginners. I use a student-centered approach and encourage people from all backgrounds and skill levels! My favorite topics to teach are piano, saxophone, music theory, composition, and jazz improvisation.

I believe that studying music is a privilege and is vital to becoming a well-rounded person. Music is hard, but it is very rewarding. I studied classical piano for 10 years when I was a child, before becoming interested in jazz music and improvisation. Studying music at the Eastman School of Music and at Lincoln Center has taught me to work hard and appreciate art. Because of my love for music and dedication to my instruments, I have been fortunate enough to play in bands such as the: Berklee Jazz Ensemble, U.S. All-Eastern Jazz Ensemble, the U.S. All-National Jazz Band, and the Eastman Jazz Ensemble. Recently, I have been studying Psychology at the University of Rochester. Learning about human mind from such great teachers has allowed me to understand and refine my own teaching strategies.

Please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions or to schedule a lesson. I look forward to teaching you music and helping you achieve your goals!

Best,

Piano

Piano

I studied at the Eastman School of Music, Lincoln Center, and the Berklee College of Music. I spent the years 2006 to 2015 studying privately under the great Paner Ying. She taught me to work hard, play in time, and play with 100% heart and focus. I have been trained in songwriting and composition at the Eastman School of Music. I want my students to develop an understanding of the piano by playing songs and scales. It is for me to establish a practice routine with my students, but also make sure they are having fun!

Knowledgeable, fun and patient.

I bring music to him from school and he helps. He is also showing me other ways of doing things. He makes the lesson fun. I recommend him for beginners and advanced.

Kind person who teaches music well

My daughter needs to learn basic music theory quickly and she said that she was afraid it would be boring, but with Jordan, she loves it and feels motivated to learn.

Kaia, 4 lessons with Jordan

I love Jordan!

Jordan has super high passion in music composition, it’s a good approach to learn music theory by writing and editing song! I recommend him to anyone, especially beginner like me.

Owens, 21 lessons with Jordan

My kid is learning loads!

We’ve had a handful of sax lessons with Jordan now, and my kid is really enjoying it. This is a really new instrument for us, and Jordan was so attentive and observant that he was able to instruct Max even though Zoom on how to modify his techniques. His teaching style is also refreshing, challenging Max to do improvs, even at this very early stage. I’m sure his style contributes to my kid’s enthusiasm, which all parents relish.

We love Jordan!

My son was feeling very “blah” about saxophone until he met Jordan! He is now engaged and excited to learn more. He looks forward to lessons and practices without prompting. It has been an incredible experience. Thanks Jordan!
