Jordan Proffer

Drum/Guitar/Piano Teacher


Based out of Dallas, Texas, Jordan Proffer is an accomplished multi-instrumentalist with a history in both performing and teaching a variety of musical genres. In 2022, Jordan was chosen as the 2022 Yamaha Young Performing Artist Drumset Winner as well as one of ten finalists for the 2022 PASIC Drumset Competition. He has toured with Nick Finzer and German-based guitarist Peter Autschbach. During his time at the University of North Texas, Jordan was a member of the Grammy award winning One O’ Clock Lab Band, and deeply studied the jazz tradition with Quincy Davis, as well as Brazilian and Afro-Cuban drumming with Jose Aponte, and Indian drumming with Poovalur Sriji. 

Although music may be his job, Jordan plays out of his love for music and his craft. He believes in playing music to unite people from all around the world and to inspire others to create. His first single, Keep Pushing(featuring Shaun Martin of Snarky Puppy and Kirk Franklin), illustrates his love for his first instruments, piano and guitar. After serving as a guitarist at The Hills Church for 6 years, he has been the primary drummer for the past 4 years. Jordan leads his own jazz fusion/R&B group, The Proffs, who had a weekly residency at the Free Man Cajun Cafe in 2023. He also leads a jazz group that performs at various venues as well as private events. Weekly, Jordan performs at weddings with various DFW-based party bands.

As an avid composer, Jordan primarily composes jazz, R&B, and gospel influenced music for his own groups. He also produces film scores, 80’s rock/pop, hip-hop, and electronic music.

Jordan is an experienced clinician for drumlines and various percussion groups, having led multiple drumline and All-State camps at Birdville High School and Ranchview High School.
