Welcome and Introduction

Welcome to the Desert Ridge High School Orchestra program! My name is Ajay Patel, and this is my 14th year teaching music, and my first year at Desert Ridge High School! I earned my BA in Music Education and my MM in Cello performance at ASU. I am also the Associate Conductor of the Scottsdale Philharmonic, an adult community orchestra of retired professionals, teachers, and community members. I also was the first conductor of the East Valley Youth Symphony, from 2006 - 2015. Previously I have taught in the Chandler and Tempe school districts. Additionally, my cello and I travel all over the world, and I had the opportunity to be principal cello for the China Tour of the American Festival Orchestra in 2011. I have a private cello studio, and perform in various professional valley orchestras, and I am a substitute cellist for the Arizona Opera. I am very excited to have the opportunity to work with you this year, and together continue the legacy of excellence at Desert Ridge High School!
