In the fall of 2011, Mr. Dodson was one of two students selected to inaugurate the Curtis Institute of Music’s classical guitar studio bringing to the school not only a new instrument, but also new repertoire and new possibilities for music making. Curtis Dean John Mangan said Dodson fulfilled the school’s need for “ambassadors for the instrument and its repertoire who could create interest among their peers, alongwith a desire to collaborate.”
Originally from Columbus, Ohio, Jordan Dodson started playing music at a young age. He holds degrees from the Curtis Institute of Music, the Manhattan School of Music, and the Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music, and his teachers have included Clare Callahan, David Starobin, and Jason Vieaux.
