Rocco currently lives in Akron, OH. Rocco has taught various schools throughout Ohio and Indiana in the last few years, ranging from teaching visual, to being a band director. Rocco teaches visual, music, movement, guard, and choreography for high schools in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Indiana, Michigan, Iowa, Illinois, and California.
In addition to marching band and indoor percussion, Rocco has been teaching drum corps since he aged out of the activity. His teaching career started at the Blue Knights Drum and Bugle Corps in 2013-2014, and is thrilled to return for his fourth season with the Phantom Regiment. Rocco’s performance career is unique throughout the activity. He started off as a euphonium performer at the Glassmen from 2009-2012. His indoor experience began at Matrix from 2011-2013. Most recently, Rocco performed with Onyx World colorguard in 2017. Rocco is ecstatic to be back for his fourth year with the organization!
