About Songbird Creative

//

Welcome to Songbird Creative! My name is Jordan Paige, and I am a small-business owner and amateur philanthropist who dedicates her life to inspiring creativity in others. I strive to be an active member of our community and love being involved in the endeavors of local non-profits and organizations that support the arts and humanitarian causes. My best friend and partner-in-creativity is my chihuahua, Jackson, who comes with me to my downtown studio, the radio station, bicycling, camping, and just about anywhere in the world that he can tag along. This website is home to my music teaching studio, as well as a host of other creative pursuits and I hope you enjoy having a look around!

Education & Musical Background

As the daughter of elementary school and college teachers, I was lucky to have parents who valued my music education. I began studying classical music at age 5 on the piano, and started studying the harp at age 8. As an avid vocalist, I participated in Honors Choir and the Florida Vocal Associations’s All-State Choir at secondary school. I have many years teaching experience, and have been a private instructor at Old Boise Music Studios for 6 years. I am presently double majoring an AA in Business and Liberal Arts at CWI, and a BA in Music Business and Performance with a Minor in Marketing at BSU. I am also a student of the International Harp Therapy Academy in pursuit of a Music Therapy Certification. I actively seek to further my professional development as a teacher through collegiate study and by attending music teacher association events.

I am also an apprentice yoga instructor RYT 200 with Deepen Your Yoga Practice, located in Boise, ID.
