Timothy Rosenberg

Visiting Assistant Professor of Music (Saxophone)

My goal is to help develop musicians with large vocabularies and a focused passion for musical endeavors. At Stetson University, we will develop the student's technique with careful attention paid to the details of hand and finger movement. We will also develop the student's performance abilities by studying a range of music from different eras and styles. Students will be encouraged to perform often and also attend performances by their peers, the music faculty and guest artists. Students will learn to give and receive feedback so that we can all grow and learn together.
