Jordan is a lover of brass instruments, baroque and jazz standards. From the cornet, through B and C trumpet to piccolo trumpet and flugelhorn, he also expanded his curiosity to the French horn.

He formed his education beginning at the music school in his native Kumanovo, through the SMBC Ilija Nikolovski Luj and the Faculty of Music in Skopje. He also specialised in contemporary music at the Conservatoire de Montpellier in France and completed his Master’s studies at the Conservatoire Superior in Lyon.

He has attended many workshops and lectures held by Alan Siebert, Richard Illman, Stephen Jones and Greg Goode in the USA. In 2018 he graduated from the French horn department at the Faculty of Music in Skopje. He is a permanent member of the Macedonian Philharmonic as Third Trumpet since 2013, after a long-standing engagement as a part-time member of the orchestra.

Jordan is a great lover of baroque music and dedicates great attention to the different baroque ornaments. He also brings the same dedication when working on other styles of music, especially contemporary music. He has performed numerous times as a soloist with the chamber orchestra Skopje Ladies. Jordan is a member of the contemporary music ensemble Contempora and is a permanent member of the orchestra F.A.M.E.’s since 2009. He started playing jazz as a part of the Dance Orchestra of the Macedonian Radio and Television in 1995. In the past decade, he is active on the jazz scene with Josephine’s Suspenders, Jazz Friends Duo and the Orchestra of the Association of Jazz Musicians.

His friends admire his responsibility and precision, qualities which he also appreciates in others. He starts his days very early, with a cup of coffee and French daily newspapers. He spends his free time with his family in nature or on his second work engagement as a toy maker under the leadership of his son.
