Jay Maddox’s love of music began in the 6th grade where he began studying trumpet in Lake Tahoe, CA with award winning music educator Dean Nordby. After moving to the East Bay area Jay attended Liberty High School learning French horn and the trombone, and later Los Medanos College under the guidance of veteran music educator (and California PTA Educator of the Year) John Maltester. While at LMC Jay was awarded the Jim M. Miller Memorial Music Scholarship and was selected as an outstanding soloist for the Music Department’s annual Concerto Competition.
