Ellsworth High School


My name is Jamie Calandro and I am thrilled to be part of the Ellsworth School District. I'm proud to be a music teacher and I love the privilege of working with such amazing and talented high school students.

I am from Long Island, NY and I have been teaching both instrumental and vocal music since 2003. In my school in NY, I built the music program from the ground up and it featured four different vocal ensembles and four different instrumental ensembles by the time I left to move to Maine. My performing ensembles won multiple prestigious awards and represented the school with performances at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Busch Gardens, and Universal Studios Orlando.

I graduated from Marist College in 2002 with a BA in Communications and Fine Arts and Music and am trained in over 20 concert instruments. I have played guitar, bass, and piano for over 25 years and have performed at major concert venues all over Long Island.
