RALPH MARTINO – I am a composer/arranger and have commercially played piano and keyboards throughout the Baltimore/Washington metropolitan area for over 30 years. I’ve received a BM and MM in composition / piano from the Manhattan School of Music in New York City and was a head staff arranger/composer at the US Navy Band (Washington, D.C.) for over 20 years.
I’ve written (and currently write) hundreds of piano arrangements for Hal Leonard Corp. which make up a significant part of their EASY PIANO series; many publications for woodwinds and various ensembles with ALFRED MUSIC, TUBA EUPHONIUM PRESS, MANDUCA PUBLICATIONS, SHAWNEE PRESS and DORN PUBLICATIONS.
I’ve also taught piano for 22 years at Jordan Kitts Music and Oren Music; and I currently teach private lessons, in your home, in the Annapolis area. I reside in Annapolis, MD with my wife, Janet - also daughter, Rottweiler and Black Lab!
