Connor Terrones is a guitarist, composer, arranger and private instructor currently residing in Denver, Colorado.

At the age of 17, Terrones attended the Colorado Springs Conservatory to study jazz, classical and musical theatre.

At the age of 18, Connor began studying with Steve Kovalcheck at the University of Northern Colorado (UNC) to obtain his Bachelor of Music Performance Degree in Jazz Studies with an emphasis in guitar. During his time at UNC, Connor played guitar in the school’s flagship vocal jazz group, Vocal Lab, which earned the 2015 DownBeat Award for Best College Vocal Jazz Ensemble at the Graduate Level. Terrones earned a second DownBeat Award in 2016 for singing in UNC's Vocal Lab. The ensemble that year was given an Outstanding Performance award at the Graduate Level. In the summer of 2016, immediately after he graduated from college, Connor toured China for two weeks with UNC's DownBeat Award Winning Jazz Lab Band I playing guitar. While on tour, the group performed in world-class concert halls in Beijing (Forbidden City Concert Hall), Wuhan, Tianjin, and Changsha.

​Connor has also had the privilege of playing with some of the biggest names in jazz today, such as: New York Voices, Brian Lynch, Swingle Singers, Bobby Sanabria, and Greg Gisbert.

Terrones is currently working on his first jazz album as a leader. He hopes to release it sometime in 2018.
