Michael Rosse

Michael Rosse is an amateur pianist who seeks out opportunities to play informally with groups such Amateur Classical Musicians of Philadelphia and Moxart. In his youth he studied piano with Anca Seidlova in Pomona, N.Y., with the pianist-composer Paul Nordoff at Bard College, and with John Goldmark at the Mannes College of Music. After taking up ethnomusicology and the study of Indian music, he received a Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania.
