Jordy’s love of music began when he got his drum kit at 13 years old. Not long after, he began playing with some neighborhood friends, forming their first band in his freshman year of high school.
Jordy started at School of Rock as a drum instructor in early 2021 at the Buckhead location. With his love for music and helping children get introduced to performing rock shows, he was soon promoted to Studio Coordinator. After some expert advice and mentorship by his general manager at the time, Jordy was then offered the general manager position at School of Rock Snellville.
“Working at School of Rock is more than just a job. Being a part of the community, you actually see your students grow up and find their own voice. You feel like you are a part of something bigger than yourself. You are making a difference.”
