Jeanne Vultaggio studied horn under Eric Ruske as a Music Education and Brass Performance major at Boston University. She went on to earn a Master of Arts from Hofstra University, where she studied Wind Conducting with Dr. Peter Loel Boonshaft. Currently, Ms. Vultaggio teaches elementary band on Long Island.
Though a newcomer to the band world, Ms. Vultaggio has been composing as a hobby since childhood, honing her composing and arranging skills with chamber ensembles and a cappella groups during her undergraduate studies. As an educator, she arranged for her own students in an effort to expand on the repertoire available to beginning ensembles. Her experience as a teacher has allowed her to craft selections that meet the particular developmental and artistic needs of the youngest musicians.
Ms. Vultaggio has performed as a member of the Hofstra University Symphonic Band and the Long Island Symphonic Winds, as well as numerous local theater orchestras. She is a member of NYSSMA and MENC, and is a certified NYSSMA adjudicator.
