She is a graduate from the Conservatory of Music, University of the Pacific, California. She holds a B.A. in music education, with a strong emphasis on Orchestra. Ms. Rose enjoyed all of her teaching experiences including band, choir, general music, orchestra and especially marching band.
In her free time, Ms. Rose can be found playing her violin as a freelance violinist throughout the metro Seattle area. She has played in many different genre’s of music such as ballet with the Evergreen Ballet Company, operatic with the Northwest Lyric Opera, Bellevue Opera and the Puget Sound Concert Opera, symphonic and her favorite, broadway musicals with the NW Savoyards. She has played with other groups in the area, here’s a few more: the Everett Philharmonic, Everett Symphony, Sammamish Symphony, Issaquah Philharmonic, Eastside Chamber Orchestra, NW Savoyards. Other activities she enjoys in her spare time are volunteering at the Snoqualmie Valley Senior Center, marching in the Fall City Days parade representing the watermelon eating contest, helping out at the Carnation Farmer’s Market, and helping Roger sell trees at the Carnation Christmas Tree Farm.
But when she’s not doing any of the above, you’ll find her playing around with her two cats Pookie and Rufus, playing the Native American Flute, playing Wii, digging in dirt with a community garden pea patch, fiddling around with her latest and most exciting venture an eastside children’s fiddle group called “The Valley of the Moon Fiddlers”.Catch us around the valley fiddling around performing for causes such as autism day at Jubilee Farms, Children’s Response Center, an eastside provider of services for abused and traumatized children in Bellevue, kids with serious and life-altering medical conditions from Camp Korey, and seniors in our valley at Sno Valley Senior Center.
It is Ms. Rose’s goal as a music teacher to be of service to the musician in all of us, to bring out and cultivate the creative musician in others, to bring music into the homes of people who seek to play and learn, listen and grow musically.
