My name is Jason Salomone and I direct the orchestras at both campuses of Arizona College Prep. I am a New York native and I moved to Arizona in 2005. I currently live a few miles from downtown Gilbert with my wife, our son, and our dog, Polly. My primary instrument is the bass. I completely respect Baroque Era and Classical Era music, I completely adore Romantic Era music, and I am ever fascinated by 20th Century Era music. I listen to music so much that I drive everyone else around me crazy.

My Education and Professional Background

I studied the double bass at Mannes College of Music in Manhattan under John Dewitt, and I graduated with a B.M. in music education from The Crane School of Music. I graduated from Grand Canyon University with a Master's in Educational Leadership. I began teaching orchestra in Syracuse, NY within the Liverpool School District. I moved to Arizona in 2005 and taught for the Deer Valley School District for several years. Since 2009, I have been teaching orchestra for the Chandler Unified School District. I have been teaching for A.C.P. since 2010.
