Hi there! My name is Jordan,
I'm an Edinburgh based Percussionist and Educator. My main passion is Brazilian Carnival Music and group drumming. My journey into world music began in 2009 and has taken me all over the UK, Europe teaching and performing, complimented with multiple study trips to Brazil.


I mainly work with community music groups and in schools with people of a wide variety of abilities with my drive being to make music as accessible as possible for all people.

As well as my work as a musician in projects and bands, I also spend a lot of time creating content on Instagram and weekly videos for Youtube.
