Jordan Playing Lead for the Temptations

Professional Endorsements:

“Jordan Hoffman has developed a tremendous range, endurance, and flexibility. He did his own research on how to acquire it. This gives him the ability to teach and work with individuals to meet their own goals of becoming a lead trumpet player or an efficient all around trumpeter.”
– Lee Adams | Owner – Callet Custom Trumpets

“I have had the pleasure of dealing with Jordan for a number of years now. If you have seen his online posts, you already know that he can play, and man, does he ever! Not only is he a tremendous musician and trumpeter, he is also a fantastic teacher. Jordan has the unique ability to assess a player’s technical facility and help that player with any difficulties that he or she may be dealing with…all in a super – positive way that makes playing and learning the trumpet fun.We never stop learning how to play this instrument. I highly endorse Jordan, his methods, and any material, whether online or in print, that he may have to offer any trumpet player who is interested in improving on the instrument.”
– Brian Scriver | GR Mouthpieces Customer Service

“Jordan Hoffman and I “met” online for collaborative projects and a podcast and we participate in FB groups discussing all things trumpet. I am familiar with his playing and he contributes a great deal to the world trumpet community. I have been watching his videos online for some time now and find that I am very much in agreement with the techniques he teaches. His book addresses the use of “squeaks” and developing them into notes. I have been doing this for some time and applaud him for thinking of this on his own. He has very thoroughly thought this through, and spelled it out clearly in his book. His ideas are not found in so called traditional trumpet method books and his ideas are going to help any player bound by the limitations of older methods. I highly recommend The Power Player Trumpet Course by Jordan Hoffman.”
– Nicholas Drozdoff | Maynard Ferguson Orchestra alumni

“Jordan is a joy to work with. He has a comprehensive plan to help you reach your goals. He fills in the missing pieces that seem lost in most traditional pedagogies. With Jordan’s help, you can connect the entire register of the horn, giving you a large playable register full of sound and color. Thanks to Jordan’s help, I am now playing music I had only dreamed of attempting.”
– T.L. Williams | Director of Bands Brooke Middle School WV

“Jordan was invited to the GR shop to be the Trumpet Test Guinea Pig for a mouthpiece consultant certification in 2018. We spent two solid days of training and understanding how the trumpet system and process works. Jordan was the test piglet, and a fine one. We talk in depth at times. Jordan has energy to say the least, is very motivated, teaches and plays the trumpet with passion and has a vision, as well as a gift with the technical side of things. His personality is great with teaching, awesome with kids, so good I gave the daughter of a close friend of mine 12 weeks of beginning online lessons with Jordan as a gift. The young girl and her parents loved Jordan’s work, she was just a beginner and able to play Christmas songs with the 8th graders after only three months; her comment, “Jordan was fun.” Jordan knows learning trumpet is a process and it is never ending. Jordan loves to learn and will drive himself to understand things using a systematic approach to solving issues that enable him to get better and better. Jordan is one to watch over his lifetime. There are some people that surprise you, there are some people you forget, I can tell you that you will never forget Jordan and he will surprise you.”
