About Wynn-Anne Rossi, from her website:

Wynn-Anne Rossi is a dynamic composer and unique music educator. She has a specialty for bringing the art of composition to young musicians and has been offering composition residencies in Minnesota schools since 2003, inspiring hundreds of students to write their own music. Her compositions have reached audiences throughout the United States and overseas. She has over 100 publications, primarily for piano, which are widely distributed online and in music stores.

Active as a presenter, Wynn-Anne is known for her innovative lectures, workshops and master classes. Musical outreach has taken her from coast to coast and beyond the borders of the United States. Her talks often center on the importance of musical self-expression. “Discover Latin” is one of her most popular presentations, inspired by the 8-book piano series, “Música Latina”.

Rossi was educated at the University of Colorado in theory and composition. Further training included choral conducting at Harvard University and jazz pedagogy through the University of Illinois, and she’s also studied composition under Pulitzer Prize recipient Aaron Jay Kernis.
