Rose became the adjunct professor of flute at Culver-Stockton College in Missouri in August of 2014. She began teaching students from Williamsburg, Mt. Vernon High School, and Mt. Vernon Middle School in May of 2014. She began teaching flute students at West Music and co-teaching the flutes of the New Horizon Band in January of this year.
Rose started playing the oboe in sixth grade at age 11 and switched to flute later that year. She says “I really loved the beautiful quality of the flute and was inspired to switch after seeing the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra.”
She studied flute performance with Sarah Ambrose at Georgia State University in Atlanta, GA for her undergraduate degree. This May she will be completing her graduate degree in flute performance at the University of Iowa studying with Nicole Esposito.
Outside of her private teaching studio, Rose works as a house manager for the University of Iowa School of Music and as a receptionist for West Music.
Rose regularly performs with the University of Iowa Symphony Band, Symphony Orchestra, Opera Orchestra, and with the TREBS Flute Quartet. In March the TREBS Quartet had the opportunity to perform Bruce Broughton’s Sparrows at the Iowa Flute Fair. She has also performed with the Muscatine, Southeast Iowa, and Ottumwa Symphonies.
This past summer Rose traveled to Italy to study at the Flauti al Castello flute master class. For two weeks she stayed at the beautiful castle Castello di Sorci in Tuscany and performed in master classes for flutists Leone Buyse and Sergio Pallottelli.
She says “my favorite thing about teaching is being able to inspire and make a difference in their lives. Each lesson is tailored to fit the student’s needs and I love seeing them take pride in their accomplishments and successes.”
