Brandon Mitchell is the co-owner of Small House Entertainment, LLC and is currently in pursuit of his master’s degree in jazz studies at North Carolina Central University. He is an Elon University alum with a bachelor of arts degree in percussion performance and jazz studies.
After receiving multiple undergraduate awards — the Elon music scholar, Effie Mae Wicker Johnston award, and the University’s Music Department Chair award — paired with studying amongst renowned jazz musicians such as Jon Metzger, Thomas Taylor, Ed Paolantonio and Jon Ozment, Mitchell is poised to lead a career filled with performance, composition/arranging and education.
Mitchell’s performance history is not limited to his hometown of Washington D.C. – throughout his career, he toured all throughout South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida, to name a few. He’s toured abroad in Italy several times with the Elon Jazz Ambassadors — including performances at the Jazzit Festival, Teatro Piccolo in Milan, and some performances in front of the Duomo on Notte Bianca.

In addition to his performance experience, Mitchell has taught a plethora of drumset and jazz keyboard studies and hopes to keep this as an integral part of his career.
