Musical Bio

Jordan started learning to play the classical guitar and violin at the age of 7.

A year on, he joined the Isle of Wight Music Centre (comprised of orchestras of varying standard), and was invited to its flagship orchestra, the Isle of Wight Youth Orchestra, at the age of 12. In 2012, he took up the position of leader whilst self-tutoring the viola and subsequently stepped down to take up the position of lead viola. He returns to the orchestra once a term as a guest performer. Early in 2013 he was invited to join the Isle of Wight Symphony Orchestra as a 1st Violin, which he was a member of briefly before leaving for university later in 2014. Currently he takes part in the Oxford Millennium Orchestra, the Spectra Ensemble and various chamber orchestras.

Having studied guitar under John Nash of Ventnor for 11 years, Jordan has been involved in various solo recitals and competitions, winning 6 classes and a main competition at county level. He often composes on the guitar, with recent works exploring novel tunings and unexplored harmonic soundscapes.

Alongside his guitar works, Jordan has also composed a symphony, a number of symphonic poems and a set of piano studies.

Jordan is the current Nettleship Instrumental Exhibitioner at Balliol College, University of Oxford, as well as the Concert Secretary of the Balliol College Music Society.
