Musician and composer, Aaron Malone began his musical studies on the violin at the age of 7. By 13, he had composed a handful of original chamber compositions and was studying violin, viola, theory and counterpoint full time. At 15, he entered the Crossroads School for the Arts on a full scholarship where he majored in viola performance and composition. During his time at Crossroads, Aaron won the Crossroads School Herbert Zipper Award, was awarded the “Most Promising Musician” prize in the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s Bronislaw Kaper Awards competition, performed with numerous orchestras, including an opportunity with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, witnessed several performances of his original compositions, and toured Holland, Belgium and Israel in various chamber music settings. At age 18, he entered the Manhattan School of Music as a composition major and continued to have the opportunity of seeing more of his compositions performed.
Over the years, Aaron’s musical interests took him into explorations of jazz, blues, rock, bluegrass, world and folk music. Most recently, he spent close to 4 years as a member of bluegrass/country band Fitzmaurice, during which time he also dabbled in concert booking and event production.
Aaron is recently married and has plans in work for a new collaborative musical project with his wife which they anticipate seeing take life in the near future!
