Rocco Signorile

RCM Certified
Teacher ARCT/LRCM
Hello, My name is Rocco and I am a piano teacher from Vaughan with 10 years of teaching experience. I hold my Associate Diploma in both Piano Performance and Piano Pedagogy from the Royal Conservatory of Music and I belong to the Ontario Registered Music Teachers' Association. I am originally a business administration graduate from the Schulich School of Business at York University. Having played the piano for 25 years, I have a tremendous love for the piano and sharing my passion of music with others. so I decided to begin my own studio while studying in my fourth year of University. My past 10 years of teaching have been very rewarding. I always give my students frequent goals to stay motivated such as a recital, festival, competition or RCM exam. My students frequently win awards at festivals and obtain very high marks at RCM exams. I'm looking forward to beginning or enhancing your musical journey. I hope to hear from you.
