My name is Joe Massaro.  I have been teaching in Southern
California as a full time high school and part time college
I have been working at Arroyo since the Fall of 2005.  I am
experienced in teaching Jazz band, Marching band (field and
street), Concert Bands, Color Guard, Drumline, Orchestra,
Music Theory, Piano, Musical Theatre, and world travel, just to
I am also a member of S.C.S.B.O.A., I.A.J.E., M.E.N.C. , and
other educational organizations. I have spent my entire career
since high school conducting, writing and arranging music for
academic and professional organizations across the country.  I
am very experienced at knowing what a musical ensemble
requires to be successful.

My educational objective is to produce well-balanced
responsible adults, and the best way I know to achieve this goal
is through a Championship Band and Color Guard!
