About Jordan C Drum Tuition
With 10 years teaching experience, Jordan has been blessed with many opportunities to share his passion for the drums with adults, young people and children. Jordan has thrived since graduating from his music degree in 2016 and has loved being able to throw himself into the role of teacher full-time through one to one and shared lessons, percussion workshops, music well- being groups and performance/ concert opportunities. Jordan has a laid back, patient, and fun approach and believes it is important that students arrive to a comfortable atmosphere and leave inspired to learn and play even more!
Jordan is passionate about helping all students realise their creative dreams and get the most out of their drumming journey across all abilities, ages, and backgrounds. He prides himself on having taught lessons to the disadvantaged, children with SEN, adults who are intellectually disabled and persons with physical disabilities. Jordan sees it as a real honour to be able to see how music can positively impact those who may be struggling for any reason and this has increased his passion for music and for teaching.
As an experienced professional drummer, Jordan has years of experience playing for local big bands, church worship teams, a 7-piece folk band, funk, rock and pop bands, function gigs and various session and recording projects. He has played in a variety of settings including churches, clubs, auditoriums and festivals. Jordan is currently working on a jazz-fusion project with some incredible virtuoso musicians and is enjoying the challenge that it is bringing to his own drumming ability.
Jordan prides himself in getting the best sound out of his drums and enjoys experimenting with different tunings and dampening techniques as well as learning about the various materials and woods that make a drum sound. He also loves to mix samples and use triggers in his drum set up both live and when recording and enjoys the continuous hunt for interesting and rich drum samples to use with Ableton, Logic Pro, and his Roland SPDSX drum pad.
