My parents helped me nurture my love of music by letting me take piano lessons in the 5th grade. Since my first lesson, I have studied classical music (baroque, romantic, impressionist, serial) and jazz. Aside from my studies, I began composing material and improvising with friends.

I also went to Berklee for two years to study sound design

Rafael Rosa: Portrait

Read "Rafael Rosa: Portrait" reviewed by Ian Patterson


In jazz terms Puerto Rico has certainly punched above its weight, producing Juan Tizol--a mainstay of Duke Ellington's bands in the 1930s and 1940s, Eddie Gomez and Manolo Badrena--who came to prominence in the 1960s/1970s through their respective associations with pianist Bill Evans and Weather Report--and latterly David Sanchez.
