About this pro

I am a film composer for Netflix, Vice, HBO as well as films. I also make music for ads like Apple, l’oreal, MasterCard and more! For teaching I focus on the student’s needs and strengths and don’t force them to learn anything they are not interested in. My students are here to learn to love music as we hope for longevity in their music making/playing.

    Jordan is an awesome composer. He has taught me so many things from correct finger placement to scales and chords. He’s has great energy to vibe off of and is always open to trying different things to help with the way you learn. I love taking lessons from Jordan ! A definite must !

  • Tim Vuchas

    As a kid, I used to take stale lessons and learn classical songs and it kept my love for playing piano at bay. Until Jordan started working with me and inspiring me to play every day. I’ve been taking piano lessons from him for about 3 years and my skill/passion for playing has increased 10 fold! I recommend Jordan for all levels of piano and guitar lessons. He is a true artists and a fantastic teacher who relates to all of his students.

    Jordan worked with my son from age 5-6 and was fantastic! The rate at which my son progressed on guitar was astonishing and they even started writing their own songs together. Now my son is 7 and is playing live shows in a band around LA!
