About Me

Welcome to the Glendale, Arizona Music & Arts store!  I am Elliot Ventimiglia, one of the educational representatives in the west valley. As an educational rep, I take care of many west valley school district’s band orchestra, choral, and general music programs to ensure they receive the best possible products and support.  I also help with parent needs between our local affiliates the Glendale store and schools.

I have spent most of my life in music, starting with learning the clarinet in the third grade. Back then I never would have believed that I would go on to perform with artist such as Winston Byrd, T.S. Monk, James Moody, Wycliffe Gordon, Lewis Nash, Paquito De’Rivera, Matt Catingub, Patti Austin, the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Wynton Marsalis, Chris Vadala, Ernie Watts, and Pete Christlieb as well as recording three albums with the Bad Cactus Brass Band, and recording commercials for New Belgium Brewing Company and Southwest Airlines. I currently am playing local with Dan Reed and his Hot Shots, the Jeff Fairchild’s Blues Tribute Band and Jump Jive and Wail.

I graduated locally from Paradise Valley High School and am a Phoenix native and went on to study instrumental music education with a Jazz emphasis at Ottawa University. After college I received a job as band in the Deer Valley School District. I went on to teach three years at Sunset Ridge School and three at Sierra Verde. I decided to make the change to Music & Arts so I could continue to help children and educators throughout many schools make their musical possibilities endless.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any question as I am the rep for the Agua Fria, Avondale, Basis, Buckeye, Cartwright, Creighton, Glendale, Isaac, Litchfield, Madison, Osborn, Pendergast, Peoria, Tolleson and Washington. Also please come on in and visit my colleagues at the store.  You won't regret the visit.
