Jordan Christenot is a guitarist, pianist, percussionist, composer, and artist serving the greater Orlando area. Originally from Fort Walton Beach, Florida, Jordan has been passionately playing instruments since 1994. His early lessons covered piano works by Beethoven, Mozart, Bach, and Chopin. In 1995, Jordan began studying percussion in middle school and picked up the guitar in his spare time. He studied percussion both at Jacksonville State University (AL) and the University of Central Florida, where he holds a Bachelor of Arts in Music.
Jordan has extensive experience performing and teaching the percussion marching arts. He marched snare drum for Music City Mystique in 2003 and 2005 and has worked with numerous high school ensembles throughout the southeast including Choctawhatchee High School (FL), Forsyth Central High School (GA), and Olympia High School (FL) where he served full-time teaching guitar and percussion from 2015 to 2018. He also designed drill and choreography for the Chattanooga Independent Percussion Ensemble from 2011 to 2015. The group received the silver medal in their class at the WGI World Championships in three of those five years.
Jordan has played the guitar since 1998 and is still happily learning. He enjoys Spanish-style classical repertoire, blues, rock, jazz, indie, folk, and country. He is also a proud supporter of the mighty ukulele and encourages learners of all ages to add it to their skill set. Jordan loves to sing and often uses his instruments to accompany himself while he serenades his friends or occasionally gigs at various venues around Orlando.
Since 2022, Jordan has been an active member of the Central Florida Community Arts Symphony Orchestra, playing lead electric guitar in "Classical Rock" at the Steinmetz Hall, keyboard in "Beauty & the Beast", and percussion in "Symphonic Swing" and "Symphonic Disney".
