In my lessons, I combine real-world experience as a guitarist and composer with a decade experience as an educator.
I teach all levels of guitar, specializing in rock, metal, and folk. I have been playing guitar for over 20 years, and I continue to hone my sound in my work with Falls of Rauros and Forêt Endormie. I love helping my students learn how to play the music they love, and teaching them the skills to learn those songs on their own.
COMPOSITION & MUSIC THEORY
I am an active composer with a Master of Music in Composition degree. My current work includes writing for my chamber group Forêt Endormie and video games (Revenot, Hidden Treasures in the Forest of Dreams).
Together, we can work on any combination of instrumental technique, sight-reading, music theory, and writing music either as a guitarist or composer.
Lessons are taught online via Zoom or in person at my studio in Portland, Maine.

What my students say
"From my first lesson with Jordan, he was able to identify and help me address knowledge gaps that were holding my playing back. I made more progress with Jordan in the first month than I had in years practicing on my own. An excellent teacher that will mentor you to reach your creative goals."
