About Me
I am a pianist, accordionist, drummer, and singer-songwriter from Providence, Rhode Island. I grew up in Providence and have lived there all my life. I have always loved music even from when I was little (banging on coffee cans with spoons, pretending I was like my uncle John Rossi). At age eight, my mom signed me up for piano lessons with Robert Paolo, but come to find out, I had been signed up to take "piano-accordion" lessons. I continued playing accordion for ten years (winning over 50 awards in New England and National contests and playing for local festivals). In the fall of 2010, my aunt Linda Rossi sent me back to Robert Paolo, this time to take piano lessons. I won two first places in the New England Music Festival. I started writing songs when I was ten and continue up to today writing classical material as well as rock and pop. I have also made cover videos of songs on the drums and continue to create new music in percussion. Besides writing songs and performing, I am an actor for the La Salle Academy Players and have been in over 5 shows including: "The Music Man", "Hello, Dolly", "Sound of Music", and "Pippin".
