About Lafitte Music Center
Music is a unique and personal voyage of discovery.
At Lafitte Music Center, we believe that every individual has a unique creative potential and that each student’s musical and artistic journey will take a form that reflects their uniqueness.
More than just instructors, our teachers are mentors who will work closely with you (or your child) to help articulate your musical goals, discover how you learn most naturally and design a program that is suited to you.
Our performance space provides the perfect venue for budding musicians to showcase their skills, get comfortable playing for and with others, and to learn to express themselves freely.
We also hold regular events from painting nights to jam sessions and musical performances that provide students with exposure to a wide range of artistic expression, culture, and rich interaction with other artists and musicians.
The atmosphere at Lafitte Music Center is always relaxed, inspiring and a reminder that learning music should be fun!!

From Our Owner
Hello! I’m Jordane, owner of Lafitte Music Center (pronounced “luh-feet”), which was named after my late father Jean Lafitte, who gave me his passion for travel and music.
Growing up in a dual-culture household, I quickly became fascinated by the relationship between music education and culture: how music is felt differently from one culture to another. Is talent just a perspective? How far can we go with the concept of “hearing”? How does music heal? What exactly can we learn from other cultures?
After many years of musical studies, I earned the first prize in Music Theory and a medal for my piano performance from the International Conservatory of Music of Paris, France.
Eager to experience other lifestyles, I started to travel, learn, teach and create music in several countries for 12 years where I experimented with different teaching styles.
Lafitte Music Center was simply born out of a passion and a need that may resonate with you too, as a parent who wants your child or yourself to benefit from the most comprehensive music education available, as a creative soul wanting to network with others and as a life and community-lover looking for local eye opening events.
