Meet the Day Violins Family

String Instrument Specialist

Jordan from a young age has been raised in a home were music was the highest priority, and was considered a treat and not a chore. From the age of three he started on the piano and voice, and after a few years, he realized that his passion was strings. At the age of about six and with the blessing of an initially reluctant mother, he started his endeavor on the violin. After playing for over nearly 17 years, and having played in many local groups and settings, he is very glad to share his knowledge and love of the violin to all of those he meets, and help them find their love and passion for music as well.

Jordan is currently working on a double major in Japanese and Electrical Engineering up at the University of Utah, in hopes of pursuing a Master’s in business in the near future.
