The Rockoff's picture

To whomever is reading,

Welcome to my blog (gates open, John Williams music is heard, etc...)

Hi my name is Ben Rockoff and I'm a freshmen at Northern Arizona University for a Choral Music Education BA and a minor in Philosophy.

My ties with A Cappella. I went to Desert Oasis High School in Nevada and was a founder of the main group there Impulsss! (we were the diamondbacks). My teacher Brad Pierson started the A Cappella summit 2 years back at Chaparell High School and brought it to Desert Oasis to get the county informed and involved in the great genre of pop A Cappella. I saw Vybration (Disneyland A Cappella group at the 2008 A Cappella summit and then the following year saw Deke Sharon and the House Jacks at the 2009 A Cappella summit.

With my high school year ending I decided that music, but more importantly music education, was what I wanted to do with my life, and so I high-tailed it up here 8000 feet I presume to Flag Staff where the weather is almost always nippy and the music program is amazing to study under some of the greats (Edith Copley, & Ryan Holder).

It is here that I joined a new a cappella group called Elevation and have succeded in learning about the collegiate a cappella experience while getting decent... grades in all my classes (being a music major is hard work!!!).

At this point in time I am looking to make an all male a cappella group for here on campus to best elevation at their own game because the group was not up to my standards. If anyone could give me more insight as to how to start and maintain a group I would be most appreciative.

Thanks for reading my blog :)

Looking forward to writing more for the next installment of... *thinks of whitty name for blog*

Memoirs of that Rockoff kid 

(hope that works)

Oh and in case you want to see some of the groups i've been in :)
