Ross has been recognized with five certificates from the American College of Musiciansí Piano Guild. He passed with distinction the music theory exam of the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music. Ross has participated in annual recitals as well as many impromptu performances at the Atrium at Navesink Harbor, where his grandmother lives.
