Raised at Project Artaud Artist Collective in the Mission District of San Francisco, his mentors were jazz greats Herbie Lewis and Sonny Simmons, as well as composer Neil Waltzer. Leon attended the New School Jazz & Contemporary Music in New York, traveled the world and returned home to the San Francisco Bay.
His solo project builds on a history of writing music for theater, burlesque, and dance. On stage and in the studio he merges the sounds of classical harmonies with a pop-rock sensibility that is influenced by hip-hop vibes.
If you like the sounds of Leon Rosen, children and adults can learn piano from this classically trained musician. Students enjoy his willingness to design a curriculum that matters to them.
