She's also a kind, sincere, and dedicated young woman of whom we're very proud. She's graduating from high school this month and has plans to go to JCCC and then to Wichita State to study music or psychology.
Here's Jordan performing a cover tune on her youtube channel.
And here's what Jordan had to say when we interviewed her last week.
What instruments do you play?
I'm a singer and a guitarist and I also play the ukulele.
How long have you been studying music?
For about four years or so.
What are your plans for after graduating high school? If you're going to college, do you know what you'll be studying?
I'm going to JCCC, but I plan to go to Wichita State after that. I'm going to major in either music or psychology.
What is a moment at Music House that you'll never forget?
Once, while I was performing with my band at a Music House concert, kick drum broke. While they were fixing and testing the kick drum, the bassist turned it into a musical moment by playing 7 Nation Army in time with the kick drum!
What advice do you have for Music House students who are just starting to learn to play?
Learn from your fellow students!
What will you miss most about Music House?
Since I'll be close by, I plan on continuing my lessons at Music House after graduation.
What's the best piece of musical advice you've received?
Use a metronome!
What do you hope to remember most about your best performance at Music House?
When my band played "She" by Green Day. We played it so well!
