About Jesse

I started to fall in love with music when I saw the Beatles Anthology on TV; got my first guitar when I was 15 and have been hooked ever since. I started playing in Rock Bands in high school and started teaching lessons my senior year of high school in Dale City Virginia; then I got real serious about music and decided to go to Music School.

I received my Bachelor Degree in Music Performance from VCU in 2006 and have been teaching lessons in the Richmond area ever since. I play many instruments around Richmond and Central Virginia, and you can most notably see me playing mandolin with bands such as, The River City Band and A Good Natured Riot.

Connor T. Richmond, VA

My experience covers all styles of music, with special expertise in rock, jazz, blues, and metal. I also have an additional expertise in improvisation in these styles. Also experience with pop, country, bluegrass, funk, and basic classical guitar.

About Connor

I first fell in love with music at the age of 7 after hearing Led Zeppelin's "¬úBlack Dog". I soon after received my first guitar and started learning all of my favorite classic rock songs. Over time my tastes began to branch out to include all kinds of music from country to jazz. Knowing that I wanted to pursue a long-term career in music, I decided to choose a college with a strong music program, and received a bachelor's degree in music performance and jazz studies from Virginia Commonwealth University in May 2010.

As a jazz guitarist, I perform regularly in a variety of settings with various ensembles. For the last several years I have played at various venues in the Richmond area, such as Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens, Tobacco Company restaurant, Havana ...
