Daine is a diverse and award-winning pianist, composer, and producer. Trained from a young age on classical piano, Daine has since ventured into nearly all avenues of music. He began to play professionally starting at age 16. Daine has composed for and performed with nearly every type of ensemble, from jazz and classical ensembles to big band, choir, and orchestra.

After studying for many years with fantastic teachers privately and in college, he earned his a music degree and earned certificates for studying music production and recording from Berklee’s online music program. He now operates his own business of playing and privately teaching jazz, pop, and classical piano, as well composing and improvising in those styles.

He also loves to create music videos in his spare time, from wild piano improvisations with accompanying music theory analysis to intricate acapella covers. You can check them out on Instagram and Youtube @dainejordanmusic.

Daine also has a unique connection to Jonny May and pianowithjonny.com. As a teenager, he was a big fan of Jonny’s music videos on Youtube. Later, he reached out and had the opportunity to study directly with Jonny for several years and get intimately familiar with his musical style and teaching. Daine now works a Quick Tip writer and instructor for PWJ and has the privilege of sharing that insight with its students.
