Based on shared experiences, DEREK BECKVOLD and ROBERT JORDON co-founded TEACH TO LEARN in January 2017 to address a fundamental need in American and international music education.
Both are global performers, educators, and consultants for institutional development and the advancement of arts education. With over twenty years of cumulative experience, they deliver quality music instruction and teacher training while also focusing on administrative efficacy, curriculum development, and project management. Graduates of the New England Conservatory, they are committed to individual artistry and share a deep connection to jazz and western classical music. Both are former studio directors at the Afghanistan National Institute of Music, where they began to fully understand the impact that an arts education can have in circumstances of poverty and violence. Their unique background working in developing countries has allowed them to problem solve and adapt to fit the needs of many different organizations.
