Luciano Salvatore was born on December 6, 1952 in Hamden, Connecticut and began piano lessons at the age of nine. By age ten, young Luciano was already composing music, and performing at recitals and local functions. After finishing High School, Salvatore continued his studies at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts under Edward C. Bedner (piano), Gary Burton (improvisation), and Charles Banacos (piano), receiving his Bachelor of Music degree in 1975. Subsequently, Mr. Salvatore accepted a faculty position at Berklee while continuing his education at Boston University with Edith Stern.

Shortly after receiving his Master of Music degree at B.U., Luciano moved to the New York metropolitan area and founded North Jersey Music Labs, a private firm specializing in piano, theory, composition, improvisation, and voice. North Jersey Music Labs's clientele now includes over one hundred students.

Salvatore's diverse performing career has taken him throughout the United States, Japan, Italy, and Canada. During this time, he also established himself as a producer of award-winning music whose credits include one of the ten best records of 1996, according to JazzTimes magazine.
