I’m a better teacher than I am a musician. I discovered at a young age that I had a unique skill, grace, and passion for teaching. Beginning at the age of eight, I trained in Martial Arts for 14 years and taught extensively throughout that time to a wide range of ages. Now, with over 10 years of guitar playing and musical experience, I take great joy in helping others excel as aspiring musicians.

I base my teaching off of two words — Discipline and Discovery. As a musician, songwriter, performer, etc. it’s important to develop discipline in your craft but it’s mutually beneficial to allow the time and space to gain experience; discovering who you are as an artist with no agenda.

Everyone learns differently and that’s why it will be my objective to personally get to know your style and customize our lessons accordingly.


Singer and songwriter Jordan Marcotte blends soulful vocals and genre-defying melodies to present music centered on a message of hope. The Kansas City native taught himself piano and guitar as a teenager and quickly discovered that songwriting allowed him to articulate emotions and responses in a way that moved the hearts of others as significantly as it moved his own. Like so many, Jordan developed his craft in the church. As a worship leader, his passion to connect with people through relatable lyrics and melody was revealed. From the time that “Good Shepherd” was written, until 2014 when it was recorded and released on the Leaning EP, Jordan matured in craftsmanship. Shortly after picking up a guitar for the first time, Jordan’s gift for connecting to the hearts of people through music brought him to stages across the United States and abroad. His latest single, “Like Wine,” showcases his development as an artist and his ability to eclipse genres and still connect with listeners at the heart level.
