Having lived in Ghana for fourteen years, prize-winning guitarist Jordan Taylor has developed a distinct taste for music of all cultures. He began his guitar studies with internationally acclaimed guitarist Valerie Hartzell, under whose tutelage guided Jordan onto the international stage within a year.

He has performed in master classes or had private lessons with such luminaries as David Russell, Eliot Fisk, Jason Vieaux, Adam Holzman, Ana Vidovic and the legendary Pepe Romero among others. Jordan is a ten-time prize winner in competitions across the United States including: The Music Academy of North Carolina Guitar Festival and Competition, the McCauley Chamber Music Competition, the University of Southern Mississippi Guitar Competition, Southern Guitar Festival International Competition, and the Classical Minds International Guitar Competition. In 2016 Jordan was invited as finalist in the prestigious Kate Neal Kinley Fellowship at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.

Jordan received his Bachelor's of Music Performance with a minor in Audio Technology from Columbus State University, Schwob School of Music under the tutelage of Dr. Andrew Zohn and Dr. Matthew McCabe respectively. He received his Master's in Music from the University of Louisville where he held a full teaching assistant and received the Graduate Dean's Citation for Outstanding Professional Achievement under the direction of Dr. Stephen Mattingly. Jordan currently holds a full teaching assistantship at the Shenandoah Conservatory of Music where he is pursuing his Doctorate with world renown pedagogue, Julian Gray.

In 2014 Jordan self-released his debut album “Sketches”. Recorded in the beautiful Legacy Hall, this album includes works by Weiss, Bach, Bennett, Legnani, and the title composition “Sketches of a Memory” for guitar and electronics by Jordan.

Along with an active performance schedule Jordan is actively involved in the recording industry. He was tracking engineer of the CSU trombone ensemble recording “A Beautiful Noise” released in 2014 through Summit Records. This album was a three-year project that featured guest soloists such as Charlie Vernon, James Markey, and Joseph Alessi among others. Most recently Jordan was the mixing engineer for the new album “Angeline” by international Sony Artist Justin Miller.

Jordan has recently created the Ghana National Music Festival in Ghana's capital city of Accra. The GNMF is not only Ghana's first classical music festival but also the first ever long-term collaboration in classical music between Ghana and the United States. With a purpose of both promoting the arts within Ghana's youth population and promoting international collaboration, the GNMF is the first of what could be a music trend in the contemporary music culture.

Jordan has performed in beautiful halls across the US, Europe and Africa. He has performed live on Louisville's WUOL Classical Music Station, Ghana's SKYY FM, and Columbus State University's NPACE TV. The current season has taken Jordan through the Southeast U.S.A, Ghana, and England.
