Revision: Although currently located in Destin, we will be moving to the 30A/Santa Rosa Beach area the first of the year. A Berklee College of Music graduate and former faculty member, Bill Rossi has over 30 years' experience teaching adults and youth with a very effective and successful approach he developed. (Venturing Together: Empowering Students to Succeed describes this approach.) A basic tenant of his approach is that learning should be relevant to the student, with technique and theory learned to support the student's emotional expression, not the other way around. He's taught a wide range of students including youth who are experiencing challenges and professional adults, with a high degree of success. His forte is helping students to find their unique voice. Bill is also an accomplished musician. He played professionally nationally for about 12 years as a young adult and is currently composing and developing a new style fusing Blues, Jazz, and Flamenco. We think of it as "Jazz for the Rest of Us". To listen to his music and read more about his teaching approach, go to his studio page at Merge-Education.com. His rate is $80 for a 50 minute lesson. He is currently located in Destin near Big Kahuna's but moving East the first of the year; his telephone number is 850.502.2223.
