Myles Jordan

Cellist Myles Jordan arrived in the US from Canada in 1981. While attending graduate school inPhiladelphia he founded the DaPonte String Quartet and taught cello and chamber music at
Temple University, Wilkes University, then afterwards at the University of North Texas. Holding
a doctorate and with almost four decades of professional experience, Jordan has recorded for
RCA Red Seal, CBC, Cadenza and Centaur records, written for Strad Magazine and
collaborated in chamber music concerts and broadcasts with many of the world’s greatest
performing artists.
A firm believer in the inestimable value of art music, Myles strives to give students a sense that
the highest possible standards are both their calling and their responsibility. Learning constantly
from resources that are partly documentary, partly technical, partly traditional and partly
spiritual, to lay open as clearly as possible composers’ original intentions, is the central ideal to
which he has dedicated his working life.
