By day, Aaron Dean is the principal of Pittsfield Public School. In his spare time, he loves to perform in front of a live audience as he is deemed as a "jazz cat extraordinaire.

Aaron has shared the stage with Berkshire based bands Misty Blues and Moondance and recently participated in a tribute to BB King which raised funds for The Berkshire Music School. Dean also taught jazz to students featuring various instruments including piano, bass and trumpet. He also has a regular gig with bassist Franz Tokarz in Gruppo Mundo at the Rainbow Restaurant on 1st Street in Pittsfield.

Aaron's saxophone solos have been called flashy, bright and percussive as his play has been described as thoughtful, sustained and expansive by many local residents.
