A Little About Me...

IMG_2880.JPG

Leonard W. Rose was born and raised in New York City. The later years of his adolescence and early adulthood were spent in California, Hong Kong, and Savannah, Georgia.

 

An honors graduate of Savannah College of Art and Design (Savannah), with a B.F.A. in Performing Arts, Leonard's love of theatre shows no end. Delving into the many realms of theatre, Leonard has also directed and produced a few shows through his theatrical company, Tenacious Theatrics

 

While living in Hong Kong, he undertook the task of learning Cantonese Opera and began performing vignettes, by request of some of Hong Kong's most prestigious performers. All of these performances were for different charity organizations throughout Hong Kong and were always 'sold out'.

Post-graduation, Leonard moved to New York City, working in entertainment companies such as Little Maestros and the Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre, while also appearing in Off-Broadway shows and new-work musicals. His love for music doesn't stop at musicals. Leonard also plays multiple instruments, including piano, guitar, bass, saxophone, drums and more!

Once COVID shut the world down, Leonard moved back to Georgia and began focusing on the music education part of his career. He taught early childhood education, group classes, private lessons, coached award-winning rock bands, set up and managed events, and was the Site Director for Bach to Rock East Marietta until early 2023. Leonard explored different avenues of music education in the summer of 2023 at Aurora Day Camp, a camp for kids with cancer and their siblings. Not only does he volunteer his time working with Aurora Day Camp for their Year-Round programming, he also continues to teach music and art to kids in the Greater-Atlanta area through Imagine Arts, is the 'swiss-army knife multi-instrumentalist' for the cover band Baditude, and creates/records music for various projects in his home studio. "Do what you love, and you'll never work a day in your life."
