He was a Protege of legendary bebop guitarist Bill DeArango, and counts among his younger major influences artist as varied as Ornette Coleman Lenny Tristano, DeArango and Julian Bream, to mention a few. In a class of Cleveland musicians that included,Joe Lovano, Bill DeArango, Skip Hadden. Tom Lellis, Jamey Haddad, and Jim Emery, he honed his improvising skills and subsequently moved to New York with Lovano in 1974. His accomplishments and improvisational skills both on electric and nylon string guitar have led him to play with some of the greatest musicians in the world today.

As Author:
"25 Etudes for Contemporary Guitar" (Mel Bay Publications)

"At this level of improvisation, content is technique and technique is content.. both content and technique are smashing even where Mr. Bocian has acted as more in the capacity of a a composer".
