Music runs through the Bernadina family-his late uncle and grandpa had a great interest in the musical arts . His uncle devoted his life  to performing , and for his grandfather aside from serving our country also played along with his uncle Ralph.  Some may say he was born with the talent but actually Rocco was self taught  for the most part-only taking piano classes to learn the basics .  Today, Rocco has progressed incredibly from those lessons that he took when he was nine. Rocco has been playing for seven years and some of his favorites to play are: ”Too Late to Apologize” by Timbaland  and the moving song ” Same Love” by Macklemore .
