About Brett Jones
Get to know Brett Jones
Hey y’all, it’s Brett! I’m a guitarist, songwriter, and teacher. I love exploring the endless possibilities of music. Whether listening, studying, composing, improvising, recording, or teaching, there is always something fresh and exciting to discover. I enjoy sharing this enthusiasm and curiosity with my students.
I was born and raised here in Richmond, and I always enjoyed messing around on guitar, piano, and drums growing up. After studying biology at UVA and working in a lab for a couple years, I began to perform and teach music full-time. Since then I’ve lived and played music in Charlottesville, New York, Sao Paulo, and Richmond. I’ve played on a bunch of record and toured throughout the US and Europe. These days I play bass in the band Gold Connections, write songs and play guitar in my project Goodnight Daniel, and work as a freelance guitarist.
